Life Science Track at Orlando ITxpo 2014 Symposium

by Michael Shanler  |  September 12, 2014  |  Comments Off on Life Science Track at Orlando ITxpo 2014 Symposium

This year, Gartner has organized  a specific Life Science IT track on “Industry Sunday.”  This is a great opportunity for IT and CxO business leaders to have dialog about the “digital conversion”, how the Internet of  Everything will impact the industry, etc.     I’m also co-presenting a workshop on managing big data life science projects with Stephen Davies.

I really wish there was more time to present on more topics, as we have a lot of research that could easily have been crafted into presentations…but we’ll save those discussions for the one-on-one hall.  

Here’s a link to our sessions:

  • Workshop: Leveraging Big Data Is Essential for Life Science Innovation     05 October, 2014 (10:45 AM – 12:15 AM)

Life science companies are slow to tackle data issues associated with scientific complexity. Big data tools are an opportunity to drive faster R&D innovation cycle times and create new value. This workshop explores use cases of scientific big data, and what IT leaders need to do to prepare their organizations to develop capabilities.

  • The Future of Life Science Is Digital, Not Drug Analogs    05 October, 2014 (2:00 PM – 2:45 PM)

Life science companies will increasingly need new innovation models that are not just based on drug and device design. This session examines business requirements and technology solutions that will push life science innovation into the digital world and what IT leaders should do to prepare for the digital disruption.

  • Closing the Loop in Pharma Sales: Is It Happening?    05 October, 2014 (3:45 PM – 4:30 PM)

Multichannel approaches in pharma sales are key to meeting the needs of today’s healthcare provider. Highly analytical platforms can select the appropriate channel from a diverse mix to enable the best response. Measuring this response is the final step. This session presents the approach, architectural design, challenges and opportunities.
