CIO Life Sciences Summit Testimonials


Here's what our past attendees had to say:

"This was a well organized and productive event. Specifically, small group and scheduled executive meetings result in quality conversations with prospective clients. This summit was a big improvement compared with traditional conferences, specifically, quality meetings with executives."

VP, Business Development

"This event was much more productive than other summits or conferences. The business vertical focus is very important because everyone has the same interests, needs, and business problems to solve. My expectations were exceeded. This is a winning format."

Global Account Manager

"The format gave us, as a vendor, a relaxed environment in which to engage with C-level decision makers, which is traditionally a difficult gig to put together. The event was thoroughly productive for our company and we're progressing a couple of opportunities as we speak."

Account Director

"The audience was a great mix of commercial and public sector organizations. Thus, it was one single audience that we are rarely able to meet with in a single setting. It struck me, that while we can have one to one meetings with these customers virtually anytime, the benefit of the conference is being in one location and meeting with multiple customers. The event was a very effective use of time and effort."

GM, Health & Life Sciences

"I felt like I just cut about a month out of my sales cycle, at least. This was the first event of this type that I have attended and I felt it was very direct and on target. The sessions were perfect in the time needed."

Case Studies


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.

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.
