SRS 8.0. SRS is based on today’s IT standards, Web Services and JavaServer Pages. The enhancement of Web services to SRS reduces IT infrastructure complexity, allowing for more efficient and flexible integration of SRS into corporate environments. SRS provides integrated access to life science data, bringing together the different disciplines in R&D, and allowing scientists to make faster and more accurate decisions in drug discovery. SRS 8.0 comes with an enhanced user interface, allowing for more intuitive querying for the bench scientist. This allows the user to work with pre-defined queries and includes an intuitive graphical interface for linking information thus simplifying the complexity of data sources. The new architecture provides greater customization flexibility when integrating data sources, and reduces the need to use proprietary technology allowing faster responses to scientists’ needs.
