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

"Within this forum, I learned and gained more in two days than I could have in two to three months. The forum allowed me to be introduced to some really interesting vendors with terrific solutions. It also allowed me to further current partnerships and conversations I would previously not have had an opportunity to have. Follow-up conversations are already on the calendar."

Director, VOIP Product Development

"The networking, think tanks, and general information sessions were well done and enlightening. There was a good mix of vendor and CIO presentations. I didn't attend one disappointing session. The working lunch was excellent. I enjoyed listening to CIOs willing to share their challenges."

Senior Director & Head, PMO

"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 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."

Whitepapers

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.

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.
