Platform for Science is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution enabling informatics in the cloud. Platform for Science alleviates the complications of developing and/or setting up custom on-premises systems for scientific organizations by providing access to: 1) a hosted instance of the Core Foundation database, and 2) a marketplace of configurable informatics applications. It provides the scientific community with a flexible, cost effective and secure way to collect, store, analyze and share information. Platform for Science allows scientists to perform the most simple or complex tasks, from tracking sample inventory to automating data collection for HT-ADME and physicochemical profiling. Platform for Science lets scientific organizations purchase or develop the applications they need to create a robust and integrated environment based on the Core Foundation database. This flexibility supports customers in meeting their unique requirements, without having to pay for unnecessary services or functionality.
