Boston, MA, April 18, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Today at the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo ’19, Zifo RnD Solutions announced the launch of its latest product Sci-Desk, an on-demand, cloud based, Scientific Application Support-in-a-box. Sci-Desk offers comprehensive managed services for Scientific & lab computing systems spanning Discovery, R&D and Manufacturing industries.
“Sci-Desk is a first of its kind in the Life Science R&D Spectrum. Sci-Desk brings on-demand, scalable, customizable and secure support to scientific applications,” said Raj Prakash, CEO and Co-Founder of Zifo RnD Solutions. He went on to add, “With Sci-Desk, we aim to provide intense focus and expertise at an optimal cost in supporting Scientific application portfolios.”
The Life-Science industry is characterized by a trichotomy of 3 P’s – Plenty, Paltry and Proficiency. The industry poses a diverse challenge of having a high application to user ratio (Plenty), low request to application ratio (Paltry), and a need for intense and high level of scientific expertise to resolve and manage the applications (Proficiency).
“Sci-Desk was conceived from what we noticed supporting 28 Biopharmas across 32 sites covering 6 continents,” said Phil Mahoney, GM, Europe. “Current models of Scientific System Portfolio support result either in over allocation of analysts or end up leaving the scientific users under-served. We’ve also noticed, with the presence of a generic IT support for Scientific Applications, the responsibility of resolving user issues falls on the shoulder of scientists familiar with the application, who would rather be spending time on Science.”
Sci-Desk aims to bring about a balance in allocation and utilization at the same time delivering scientific expertise on-demand directly to users. Sci-Desk covers a growing portfolio of 73+ applications spanning Screening, Lead Identification, Lead Optimization, PK PD, Toxicology, Analytical Development, Clinical Trials and Manufacturing QC.
