CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

The summit was productive in the exchange of information and views on the possibilities of investment in oil and gas projects in Latin America. Especially with regard to the incidence of governments and environmental topics.

Exploration Manager

"The format was very open and inviting, which resulted in nice interaction among the delegates. The length of the event was just right and the choice of venue was excellent! Agenda sessions were well planned and articulated. It demonstrated a sense of closeness to the topic."

Director, Application Development

"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 was very impressed with how the summit was managed, the content in the sessions, and list of senior level executives. The staff, location, communication and organization were superb."

Senior Technical Director

"I like the relaxed environment of the meetings, panels and workshops, which led to open discussions and exchange of ideas."

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.

Stop Talking About Transformation. Do It. CIOs tell us that they simply do not have the right data to make decisions – either they do not trust the data or it simply does not exist. For the CIO, data is everything. It should be easy to collect, easy to report and easy to use. We believe accurate data presented in a dashboard format helps you make swift decisions.

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.

Minding the As and Qs of Lead Gen Technology Amid the many options of marketing technology available to the industry, two are rising to the top: augmented reality (AR) and quick response (QR) codes.
