CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND; Nov. 30, 2018 – SciBite has joined Accenture’s open partner ecosystem, which is designed to help independent software vendors (ISVs) and life science companies team more effectively to accelerate drug discovery efforts and improve patient outcomes.

The ecosystem is an integral part of Accenture’s cloud-based informatics research platform, which has been designed to help life sciences organizations improve productivity, efficiency, and innovation in drug discovery. Accenture is currently working with a select number of ISVs and organizations — including SciBite — to integrate their technology and content into Accenture’s research platform. This will allow life sciences companies to give their researchers access to innovative capabilities, such as SciBite’s award-winning, scalable, easy-to-use semantic technologies that understand the complexity and variability of content within life sciences, that quickly identify and extract scientific terminology from unstructured text and transform it into valuable machine-readable data for downstream applications.

“SciBite is very excited to be part of the Accenture Life Sciences Research Platform Ecosystem from its very beginning,” said Neal Dunkinson, Head of Technical Sales at SciBite. “Offering API-driven semantic enrichment and data cleansing capabilities, SciBite is a natural fit for this type of cloud-based ecosystem. A cross-industry collaboration on this scale allows Life Science to realise the benefits from ‘best in class’ modular technologies within a unique integrated environment.”

SciBite’s capability will be available to life sciences companies within a common informatics framework that handles core infrastructure requirements such as data ingestion and cleansing, security and IP management, request management workflow, enterprise search, data governance, and collaboration environments.

“One of the advantages of the Accenture research platform is our ability to connect pharmaceutical and biotech researchers to an ecosystem of innovation,” said Joe Donahue, a managing director in Accenture’s Life Sciences practice. “Through the ecosystem, researchers can easily access and benefit from capabilities such as those offered by SciBite – focused ontologies and services that are tuned to the needs of drug discovery — that, ultimately, can help accelerate work they are doing and lead to better patient outcomes.”
