Educational Session : Accelerating Biotech R&D through Cloud Computing

okt 18, 2018: 9:45 a.m. - 10:40 a.m.
California West

The development of cloud computing allows start-ups to scale their IT costs at the same pace as their ability to create value from them, tapping into analytics resources that traditionally were only available after massive up-front investment. For biotechs in particular, the variable data intensity of different stages of the drug development process makes cloud computing a major enhancement for R&D productivity. As real-world data and genomic sequencing become more widespread inputs to clinical trials, the data needs of biopharmas will increase exponentially, as will the challenge of integrating these data sources and the opportunity to make progress addressing unmet patient needs at a pace closer to the IT industry%u2019s speed. This panel will feature therapeutic and IT experts describing processes and applications that are making a difference today.%uFFFD
