Synomics and Viaken to Create Integration Service



AITHERSBURG, Md.--Viaken Systems, an application service provider here that specializes in research informatics for biopharma-ceutical customers, has allied with the Cambridge, UK, bioinformatics and systems integration company, Synomics. The companies will codevelop a software integration service, embedding Synomics’ Alliance architecture in Viaken’s systems.

Via its tier-one data center and the internet, Viaken hosts and delivers third-party research informatics applications and e-commerce services. Synomics provides customers with tools, services, and skills for using life science data and knowledge for discovery and development. Through their collaboration, the companies will develop integrated research informatics tools to be delivered through Viaken’s ASP platform.
