Kalleid Chemistry Data Migration
Kalleid chemistry data migration professionals offer deep domain expertise built by decades of experience in this space. We are very familiar with the underlying database technologies for the major chemistry data management vendors.
Migration of chemical data (e.g., chemical structures for small molecules or entities that link to a small molecule, chemical reactions, chemical structures for entities embedded in biologics) is often necessary when a company adopts a new R&D informatics solution, such as an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) or a new entity registration system.
There are unique challenges associated with the migration of chemical data, however, some of which include:
Chemical structure data migration challenges
Typically, when you move from one informatics system to another, the underlying database technology or chemical cartridge that interprets the structural representation changes. There are often known chemical representation nuances that differ from platform to platform and may result in incomplete information being migrated about the chemical structure (e.g., information about enhanced stereochemistry may be lost or even incorrectly interpreted by the new target system).
Chemical reaction data migration challenges
There are often complexities to consider around how chemical reaction data was stored. Did you have multi-step reactions? Were the conditions, reagents and solvents stored as embedded objects in a drawing file? What if the new system does not support multi-step reactions or enumerated product libraries?
Software vendor challenges
The software vendor for the new system is often not familiar with the legacy technology platform or its chemical representation nuances.
Together with our partners, Kalleid has worked on numerous major small molecule and chemical reaction data migration projects for leading global pharmaceutical companies faced with these challenges. Our data migration specialists are deeply familiar with the underlying database technologies for the major vendors in this ecosystem, including Dotmatics, ChemAxon, Biovia, Scilligence, and Perkin Elmer. Many of our team members worked for these software vendors and have relationships with key technical experts.
Kalleid Chemistry Data Migration services include:
Chemistry data assessments
We can work with you to do an assessment of your current data structure and build the migration requirements and testing plan based on best practices.
Chemistry data migration execution
We can perform the migration (e.g., from on-premise to cloud) for you with a focus on quality assurance and minimal downtime, develop the testing scripts and perform the validation and user acceptance testing, and document the test results required by your software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Chemistry data migration project management
We have experienced professionals who can manage your chemistry data migration project, including the cross-functional vendor team required to get the job done correctly.
