Leverage Data Assets
The value of information is multiplied when it can be easily found, shared, and re-used by other people. Online archives, like SOAR, can become a revenue-generating asset; increasing the speed of research results and providing protection from potential litigation.
Collaboration and re-use of digital data in SOAR is enabled by its ability to understand and manage complex relationships among data. Any information entity can be linked to any other entity and multiple data sets can be linked to multiple documents, research conclusions or papers via multiple paths. This powerful understanding of linkages can result in new hypotheses and research or business directions that otherwise would not have been possible.
SOAR facilitates collaboration not just among physically distant members of teams but also among different teams and associated support groups.
