Data is an asset that every industry or organization needs to be able to move in the right direction, with the assurance to take informed business decisions. Today, technology hasn’t just made availability of data convenient, but has also made it possible for enterprises to draw actionable insights out of them. Ocean Data Systems is a business working in this direction, with their flagship product—Dream Report. The company, with Dream Report, an “industrial” business intelligence solution, is steering the biotech industry towards automated report generation and data analysis. “It delivers reports and KPI dashboards for the automation processes in the biotech marketplace,” begins Alexander Mazal, President & CEO of Ocean Data Systems.
While most automation business tools employed in the biotech industry are highly complex in terms of installation and maintenance, Dream Report understands automation equipment from different vendors and is tailored to interface with them. It is designed to be integrated with industrial automation solutions with seamless integration. Dream Report understands the quality attributes of industrial data and appropriately handles the situation if quality is flagged as questionable, unlike typical business tools that seldom understand quality tags. With the life sciences world falling under the category of 21CFRPart11, that governs the best practices for information management, Dream Report offers all the functionality to comply with 21CFRPart11 guideline. Typical applications include CIP reports, product and production quality reports and the documentation of lab test results.
