Environmental data, both structured and unstructured, will be collected by various consultants on behalf of your organization under a variety of sampling/monitoring programs. These data are matched to laboratory analytical data. The system implemented must provide a basis for supporting a technical data management business cycle from the pre-planning of sampling events to the reporting of technical datafor use by scientists and managers. The data management system must ensure data completeness and usability while also taking into account the defensibility of the data. The system is designed and configured around the active storage, management, and usage of your data and business practices. This in turn enables your organization to make better decisions.
