NEW YORK, March 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Accelrys subsidiary SciTegic has introduced a partner program aimed at enlisting independent software vendors to expand the applications of the company's Pipeline Pilot middleware, SciTegic said earlier this week.
"SciTegic is opening up its framework to these ISVs so they can make their applications available to our established user base," Matt Hahn, vice president and general manager of SciTegic, said in a statement. "By providing customers with access to a wider range of technologies, Pipeline Pilot will allow its users to further streamline and integrate the tools they use every day."
SciTegic said five scientific software companies are currently signed up as program members: Equbits, Molecular Networks, Virtual Chemistry, ChemNavigator, and Barnard Chemistry.
John Barnard, SciTegic founder-director, said the company is "initially" making its clustering and fingerprint generation technologies available as web services within Pipeline Pilot.
