Sentient Integrated Data Appliance (iDA)

Plug-&-Play Systems Biology

Why Integrated Data Applicance (iDA)?

An integrated data appliance (iDA) preloaded with semantically integrated sets of public knowledgebases provides an enterprise-ready “Knowledge In-a-Box” solution for Life Sciences and Systems Biology-related translational research without the IT and data integration-related challenges. No worries about issues arising from alignment of diverse public and experimental corporate standards, from inconsistent URI policies, and from the use of internal, non-formal application ontologies. No reliability issues on resource services, endpoint uptimes or URI persistence - all pre-configured and ready to use in a single box.
