Computers Shall be Much Better at Helping Scientists

Despite the tremendous effort of a myriad of research informatics people, informatics support for scientific research is grossly and critically inadequate.

Too many scientists are wasting a lot of time manually doing data processing that computers should be doing; this manual processing is also error prone, inevitably leading to accidental errors; and, on top of that, the results typically end up in Excel files with limited or inconsistent metadata, making aggregated analysis very difficult and, therefore, making the results less useful.

We aim to make a dent in this problem, by offering research informatics software and consulting that matches the need for agility, flexibility and customizability that often drive scientists to use Microsoft Excel for data management tasks that it is neither built nor suited for.
