Client Profile & Challenge
Our Client is a VC-backed, plant-based ingredient company that creates novel solutions based on their patented mushroom fermentation process. Their innovative ingredients and transformative technology offer solutions for sugar reduction, food insecurity, sustainable protein, natural immune support, and much more.
Challenge: Our Client struggled with collaboration and scientific data collection, integration, and reporting. Their manual processes and data silos resulted in many wasted hours for various functional departments orienting on the proper information. Information was exchanged through email and Office 365 applications.
Messina Group worked closely with our Client’s Research & Development team to build a one-year Roadmap focusing strategically on solving Operational Efficiency issues and enabling an Artificial Intelligence (AI)- and Machine Learning (ML)-enabled Enterprise Analytics Platform for future analysis of genomic sequence data.
Advisory Services: LIMS, Cheminformatics and Bioinformatics Platform evaluations: Selection, Negotiation, and Implementation; Advanced Analytics Platform Evaluation and Selection.
Messina utilized a Sr. Advisory Consultant, Solution Architect, Business Analyst, and Data Architect to gather our Client’s objectives and pain points, as well as evaluate software platforms and technologies.
“After” Business Value Creation
Our Client was able to address all the pain points identified above with the solutions and technologies selected and implemented. As a result, they were able to substantially expand their scientific throughput capabilities by orders of magnitude for R&D projects. The AI and ML Analytics platform also prepared them for future product opportunities guided by predictive Analytics.
