Solutions

Computing is critical to modern science, it provides the foundation that enables scientists to stand on the shoulders of giants, to see further and make new discoveries. However, translating scientific needs into IT implications and requirements is challenging and requires a deep understanding of both Science and IT, plus how these two highly technical, highly complex areas interact.

This is BioTeam’s strength, here are some of the questions we’ve helped our clients answer:

Science 

"How do we share our data AND keep our network secure?"

Data access and data security don’t have to be mutually exclusive. ScienceDMZs are a proven approach that we recommend to address this common challenge.

"How can we provide a secure web interface to this data in a way that is both useful and useable by scientists?"

Let us help you solve your pressing Bio-IT questions

Assessments & Strategic Planning

Many of our projects start with an Assessment phase. These provide all parties with a solid understanding of the Scientific and IT needs, the current situation and the desired end goals. This allows us to identify gaps to be addressed and define a solid strategic plan to achieve the stated goals. Your final report is a data-driven, integrated view of the situation that represents input from all stakeholders and provides a solid foundation for subsequent strategic planning.
