CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

It was a nice balance of the socio-political situations and operational development of the industry from the point of view of each of the participating countries. Which made it possible to generate an overview for planning short-term actions. Great event!

Drilling Director

"The networking with other finance leaders was outstanding. Many of the presentations were insightful and thought provoking."

CFO

"My most valuable take away was by far the relationships and I'll say friendships that I developed, not only with other CIOs but frankly with the vendors who attended. I especially was surprised by the benefit of getting to know some of the vendors in a way that other formats had not allowed. It is much easier to develop partnerships following an event like this."

CIO

"I thought the sessions were very informative and the group discussions were very beneficial to me. I think the sessions were the right length. I was truly impressed and very satisfied with the results and new business relationships that I developed during the summit."

CIO

"I think some of the sessions have been very strong, and also some of the informal interactions have been almost as valuable as the sessions themselves. I think it's a very nice high-level group, small enough for people to really have conversations."

Case Studies

Whitepapers

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.

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.
