The process of discovering, designing, developing and manufacturing producing new drug compoundshas, with the advent of new technologies such as genomics and proteomics, has become strongly dependent on complex series of steps involving computation, and data data sharing and storage management.transfer and storage. The overall process has become increasingly prone to both inefficiency and error due to the complexity and volume of data and the number of manual steps processes currently involved. The invention is a new business process model to systematize and automate the processes involving data generation, analysis, sharing analysis results, and collaboration required to transfer and storage of the data needed to efficiently develop new drug compounds.
