What
Welcome to the company website of envibee. Our company developes computational workflow solutions for scientific data analysis. With an emphasis in analytical sciences, envibee implements and maintains data mining software tailored to the specific needs of customers such as laboratories or research facilities and their individual research settings.
Why
Analysis of scientific data is a multifaceted and interdisciplinary task. Often, large data sets need to be routinely mined for relevant information or interesting trends and the results prioritized, summarized and visualized. This can be automatized and achieved with the proper computational tools. Unfortunately, the development and even usage of such tools is rarely straightforward.

On the one hand, analysis is specific. Computational tools need hence not only be implemented but also customized and thoroughly streamlined. The resulting workflows must be flexible enough to be updated with new data and to be fed with new parameters or optional analysis steps. At the same time, performance issues such as workflow speed, stability and reproducibility have to be accounted for.

On the other hand, most scientific workflow users are normally not that trained in computer coding and informatics as to develop reliable workflow solutions or are fully absorbed into the process of data acquisition. Hence, they rather rely on user-friendly interfaces and workflow guidance.

The efficient development of the aforementioned tools and workflows necessitates a combination of scientific background knowledge and programming skills. envibee offers both.

How
For sound outcomes, computational tools and solutions are best conceptualized and developed in close interrelation with individual customers. Core functionalities of tools are herein built, modularized and organized into the desired workflows, incorporating different programming languages (e.g., R, Phython, C, C#, HTML/CSS/JS) and optional access to databases, amongst others. The resulting sofware workflows can then either be installed locally and utilized through convenient user interfaces (or via command line) or run from a server, using browser-based interfaces.

User-friendly software licensing is crucial - our products are therefore distributed under varying conditions. Some of our recent software is distributed with a free software license, such as GPL-3. In these cases, customers will not pay license fees but the actual development or modification and maintenance of a software package. Upon request, such packages can be made openly accessible.

In other cases, software is distributed as part of a Software- and Support-Package, maintaining some copyrights but offering extensive practical support, regular updates and software maintenance. Even in these cases, customers can directly influence workflow developments and gain free and long-term software access via our attractive contributor schemes.

Please have a look at the ongoing projects for examples of our software products.
