German Sport University Cologne conducts a variety of research programs to develop training regimens and specialized diets for athletes. The research organization lacked the means to properly aggregate and analyze the medical and diagnostic information generated by its research efforts. The research center chose to work with IBM Software Services and IBM Premier Business Partner Cedros GmbH to implement eAkte, a research management solution based on IBM software. The benefits of deploying IBM solutions were cuts access times for outside agencies from up to a full day to seconds, enables faster identification of patterns in data, leading to faster research breakthroughs, and eliminates transcription errors by pulling data directly from the source.
