New ScienceCloud Mobile Applications by Accelrys Drive Collaborative Drug Discovery

New generation of purpose-built mobile applications accelerates innovation and collaboration with mobile access to tasks and projects, both in the cloud and on-premises

SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software and solutions, today announced the availability of two new mobile applications supporting key life sciences workflows and real-time collaboration spanning both the ScienceCloud workspace and on-premises systems. ScienceCloud is a secure, SaaS-based, mobile-enabled information management and collaboration environment that improves data and knowledge sharing for globally networked researchers. Bi-directional integration between ScienceCloud and existing on-premises systems lets life sciences organizations migrate to the cloud in a measured fashion, continuing to leverage critical legacy applications as long as needed.

ScienceCloud Tasks: Engage with external partners via mobile phone

 

ScienceCloud Projects: Access, search and share project data

"Leading life sciences companies are looking for innovative, cloud-based collaborative research solutions that can address the needs of today's scientific workforce, who increasingly rely on social networking and mobile communication for productivity gains," said Matt Hahn, Ph.D., senior vice president and chief technology officer at Accelrys. "Our new mobile ScienceCloud offering is a game-changer, providing new task-based and project-based applications for the many mobile devices that are rapidly becoming ubiquitous in laboratories today."

With ScienceCloud Tasks, scientists using the industry-standard Accelrys Pipeline Pilot scientific authoring application and the Accelrys Mobile Collection can rapidly build and test mobile-ready protocols supporting key life science tasks and deploy them to mobile users in a networked organization. As well as working in the cloud, the application also works with local, on-premises Pipeline Pilot deployments, supporting mobile workflows in server-based environments. With ScienceCloud Tasks, protocol authors can leverage mobile functions including image capture, location services, chemistry sketching and audio/video/speech handling. Project teams can produce mobile-optimized charts and graphs scaled to particular mobile devices and assign specific tasks to particular members. ScienceCloud Tasks improves workflow efficiency and productivity by enabling mobile-enabled scientists and researchers to:

  • View status reports and project dashboards
  • Run scientific workflow tasks (upload images to Notebook, scan barcodes, perform chemical searches, etc.)
  • Share task results with other mobile users

ScienceCloud Projects allows collaborative teams to communicate around research projects via mobile devices. Mobile-enabled scientists can access and search real-time project data and engage in project-related conversations, anywhere and anytime, improving collaboration and accelerating innovation by enabling project teams to:

  • View project status and communicate results
  • Access, search and share project data
  • Post and read project-related social media-like updates
  • Receive instant notifications of new shared information

ScienceCloud Tasks and ScienceCloud Projects are part of an open and growing ecosystem of web and mobile applications developed by Accelrys and third-party software partners to address the current and future informatics needs of externalized drug discovery projects. ScienceCloud Tasks was developed in collaboration with Eidogen-Sertanty, one of ScienceCloud's early partners.

ScienceCloud Tasks and ScienceCloud Projects are available now as free downloads from the Apple® App StoreSM.

To learn more about ScienceCloud mobile enablement, register for the complimentary webinar entitled "Research Collaboration Going Mobile," scheduled for Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
