IDBS secures Very High ELN Enterprise Vendor rating from Gartner for Biology and TransMed; Only Enterprise ELN Vendor to have a Very High rating in more than one category

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, UK, and Boston, US -- IDBS, a global provider of innovative data management, analytics and modeling solutions, is one of only five firms out of 34 to be rated as an ELN Enterprise Vendor in Gartner's research report titled, 'Manufacturers Must Consider Scientific Domain Expertise During ELN Selection', published January 11, 2013. The report, based upon hundreds of customer and vendor conversations, also gave a Very High/High rating to IDBS' deep domain expertise across five of the six key scientific areas, namely Biology, Translational Medicine, Chemistry, Formulations and Regulated (process) Environments. It received a Medium rating for Engineering.

A 'Very High' rating means the vendor has excellent scientific domain capabilities and is approaching the 'de facto' standard. IDBS is the only Enterprise ELN Vendor to have a Very High rating in more than one category. The research is designed to be a starting source to create shortlists of vendors that best serve scientific and functional domains.
