There are many data analytics tools on the market including Zoho, PowerBI, Qlik and Tableau. They connect to one (or more) data sources (including databases and/or spreadsheets) to extract the required data. Any of these tools can be used for LIMS Data Analytics though corporate IT policy, previous experience or the preferences of your data science group may dictate which you use.
Data Analytics tools allow read only access to data from multiple sources. An organization may have deployed a data warehouse to hold a subset of key data from across the business. A well implemented data analytics tool will be able access this data, as well as the full set of data available in the LIMS, to provide exceptional insights into the operation of the laboratory.
