CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

"The driving force behind my attendance was an invitation from CDM Media and my realization of how valuable the event could be for someone at my level."

Executive Deputy Commissioner

"My most valuable takeaway was seeing the shared perspectives on the state and future of technology in healthcare. In particular, the advantages of applying technology in integrated practice settings, as well as the inherent challenge of gaining efficiency in a more fragmented healthcare marketplace."


"I checked with the CIOs that I met at the event and asked them how they chose this event versus the many other options they have and the answers were: 1) good experience with this forum in the past 2) timing of the event 3) reasonable investment of time 4) topics. The summit was much better for me than the typical trade show format."

Global VP, Sales, Data Center

"Great forum for meeting other CIOs and validating hot topics in banking technology. Meetings were just the right length, and right to the point."


"I've already had follow up discussions with a couple of the vendors I met and I see promise for future business. The meetings were the perfect length of time and I learned a lot about some vendors I thought I knew. I was impressed by the event, it was very well organized and executed."



Case Studies


Key Considerations for Analytic Solutions for Life Sciences From pharmaceuticals to global health to the environment, twenty-first century life sciences companies are transforming into data-driven life sciences companies, leveraging vast amounts (and new forms) of data into processes that span from research and development to sales and marketing. As in many industries, the data is explosive: already the rate of data generation in the life sciences has reportedly exceeded that of even the predictions made by Moore’s Law itself, which predicts the steady continuance of technology capacity to double every two years. With every piece of detailed raw data now able to be affordably stored, managed, and accessed, technologies that analyze, share, and visualize information and insights will need to be ubiquitously operated at this scale too.

Apple and Life Science Research: Enabling Technologies Apple and Life Science Research: Enabling Technologies: IDC's Life Science Insights believes that Apple computer products are building upon the long-time loyalty of life science researchers and are attracting new users migrating from Unix and Linux platforms. This white paper, drawing on case study interviews, has identified the key reasons for the popularity of Apple products as well as key challenges for Apple users.

Accelerating Bioinformatics Searching and Dot Plotting Using a Scalable FPGA Cluster Hardware accelerated platform enables fast analysis of DNA Sequences In this white paper we present an FPGA-based accelerated solution for DNA sequencing and dot plotting. We describe how multiple FPGA devices can be deployed to create a scalable cluster dedicated to the task of analyzing large amounts of data, and how this clustered hardware application can be connected to a software application for visualization and analysis.
