CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

It was excellent meeting with serious companies and professionals. This Summit is really useful to improve the energy and human network between companies. Congratulations on the organization and how you take care of us.


"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

"There's been this enormous breath of experience from conversations. It's been extremely powerful."


"I thought the summit was excellent. It had the correct balance of topics, networking events, vendor meetings and outdoor activities. It was a great way to quickly get immersed in the latest tools and trends as well as highly professional and in a great setting."

SVP, Architecture

"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."



Case Studies


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.
