Data driven discovery and advanced analytics are fundamental to life science organizations.  The challenges ahead in managing, sharing, accessing, and analyzing data are exacerbated not just by the ever-increasing volumes of data that are generated but even more so by the need to integrate and analyze a wide-ranging variety of data types and sources coming from research data, clinical data, insurance data, patient data, and environmental data. 

New data management, analytics software and computational environments are needed to provide the storage, functionality and performance needed to underpin integrative research. Join us as we hear from 2 or 3 CIOs as they discuss the opportunities, challenges and successes with transitioning to the cloud and other next generation analytical platforms.

Speakers:

 Kris Joshi, PhD., Global Vice President Healthcare, Oracle Health Sciences
