CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

"Overall, I felt the summit was a good start with plenty of potential for future summits. The intellectual capital present at the conference was great. It was comforting to hear fellow CFOs are facing the same issues I am facing whether it be in a for profit or not for profit. I felt the staff at CDM Media were pleasant to be around, full of energy and willing to help make the summit as enjoyable as possible."

Director of Finance/CFO

"While the presentations were excellent and educational, having an opportunity to meet and discuss common problems with other IT executives was by far the most valuable component of the summit. The combination of general sessions and think tanks was excellent."

CIO

"My most valuable take away from the CIO Summit was new networking contacts at several companies. The think tanks had great subjects and speakers. I was impressed with the attendees; I made several new connections with CIOs I did not know from other companies."

SVP & CIO

"I believe the format was exceptional. The topics discussed at the summit were very timely and interesting. I had a desire to attend these sessions based on the topics and how it was being handled."

CIO

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

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.

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.

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.
