The ultimate success of a LIMS is largely dependent upon its ability to automate the import of raw data. One of the biggest challenges for LIMS suppliers revolves around whether a LIMS will allow and how it will allow the end users to dynamically create raw data entry templates and report templates while keeping compliance with ISO 17025 and maintaining traceability throughout all directions of the processes. A standalone SDMS provides such a tool, offering a wide variety of functionality and may be fully integrated with an existing LIMS. Also, as a complete, multi-functional module, a true SDMS system may be operated independently without a LIMS in place at all.
