Thermo Introduces Migration Agent
Product News Nov 03, 2005
Thermo Electron Corporation has introduced Migration Agent, a professional services and software solution that reduces risk and overcomes business challenges when migrating from any existing laboratory information management system (LIMS) to a Thermo LIMS.
Migration Agent employs services personnel for project management and implementation, as well as an extract, transform and load (ETL) tool to migrate data to deliver an effective and predictable migration.
“The difficulties historically associated with migration are virtually eliminated by the 6-step Migration Agent process,” said David Champagne, vice president and general manager of Thermo Electron Corporation’s Informatics business.
“We are confident we’ll be able to define the timeframes and costs associated with a migration, enabling our customers to exploit the latest that informatics has to offer in terms of productivity, process harmonization and standardization.”
Migration Agent can move users from any LIMS to a Thermo solution, such as SampleManager LIMS™ for the petrochemical, chemical, food & beverage, and other process industries, or to Darwin LIMS™, Thermo’s newest commercial-off-the-shelf LIMS for pharmaceutical QA/QC.
In addition to the proven ETL tool for low-risk, low-disruption migrations, customers using Migration Agent work with a dedicated tactical team from Thermo’s extensive, global services group in implementing the defined migration process.
