It’s not uncommon within specific software communities for there to be what we call “vertical” resources. I’m one, myself – a person trained to be able to handle the entire project, from project management, to business analysis to development work. There are specific reasons these resources exist and, as my customers tend to like, some benefits, as well.
Today’s blog post was inspired by a search phrase that brought readers to this blog, which is “labware user manual save off line”.
A recent post discussed modules within the LabWare LIMS and about not getting too crazy with downloading and installing things.

Some of the customers who read these posts are working to do as much of the actual work on their system, as possible, to include LIMS/ELN/LES System Administration, configuration, programming, etc… Others have decided that they don’t need to build some or all of these skills in-house and are asking their software vendors or other outside consulting firms (such as the premier GeoMetrick Enterprises) to do the work, instead.

I suggested writing them specifically for the devices that they will use. But some clever folks are still thinking they’re going to write one generic app that works for everything. They think if they do this that, if they switch devices, they can just swap the new devices in. Here are two more considerations.
These days, a criterion of looking for a new LIMS, ELN or LES is more and more commonly that it have mobile capabilities or some other mobile factor. More customers are looking for this. Yet, how critical is this on your requirements list?
