Laboratory leaders are feeling the pressure to modernize laboratory infrastructures to create new capabilities, but must also keep up with the current demands to the business.   The powers of mobile, collaboration, information, and cloud have already enabled many businesses to begin to change.  These forces combined, with a growing ecosystem of internet-connected objects will enable a transition into the “Digital Era”- an era where people, business processes and things will need to be dealt with as equal entities.  
This session focuses on what “going digital” really means to Gartner clients, and the impacts it will have on existing R&D and manufacturing informatics systems and processes.  It looks at barriers and accelerators and outlines a strategic vision and some examples for leaders who wish to enable the “Laboratory of the Future.”
