TIBCO, ChemAxon integrate analytics data management applications
SOMERVILLE, Mass.—TIBCO Software Inc. and ChemAxon, providers of chemical software development platforms and desktop applications for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, announced in February the full integration of the TIBCO Spotfire Analytics Platform with ChemAxon's Instant JChem data management application. Through this integration, new levels of visualization, analysis and exploration will be available to the life science community, according to the companies.
Designed specifically for end users, Instant JChem is ChemAxon's desktop chemistry solution that allows scientists to manage and search chemical structures and related information. Through JChem, scientists can create, explore and share chemical and non-chemical data stored in local and remote databases.
With this integration, Instant JChem's data generation and management capabilities are now fully exposed to the TIBCO Spotfire Analytics Platform, bringing scientists new levels of chemical search, analysis and visualization capabilities in order to speed and refine the analytic process, the companies say.
Using TIBCO Spotfire, chemists can evaluate an ever- increasing amount of data derived from screening, ADME and chemistry research efforts focusing on compound series. This allows them to take full advantage of the information to make the best decisions regarding the prioritization of which compounds to synthesize. TIBCO Spotfire easily accommodates new information and allows chemists to spot trends in complex datasets through the use of multiple linking visualizations and chemical structure viewing.
"We're constantly seeking ways to provide increased value to the life- science community," says Ben McGraw, director of life-science industry solutions for Spotfire. "One of our goals is to partner with leading solution providers in each discipline within life science. By providing an integrated offering that works with Instant JChem, we feel we're delivering a valuable solution to the chemical scientist."
"TIBCO Spotfire is the acknowledged industry standard in the field of visualization and analysis tools for scientists, and is used around the world," adds Alex Drijver, CEO of ChemAxon. "This partnership follows our strategy of working with market leaders to provide integrated solutions that bring new levels of efficiency and capability in chemical research."
