  • Tuesday, December 06, 2016

A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Attivio surveyed 112 life sciences experts involved with data analytics and visualization regarding the challenges faced. Rising to the top, are issues around too many data sets, unstandardized formats, multiple data sources (many outside the firewall), and lack of business-friendly analytics.

The webinar will discuss the findings from Forrester’s study, exploring insights such as:

  • What are the most challenging factors in data analytics?
  • Why is data aggregation so difficult?
  • How to derive actionable insights from R&D data?
  • The top benefits of improving data analytics capabilities

Brendon Kellner of PerkinElmer will also share case studies of leading research organizations that are unlocking their data with the latest technologies: providing scientists and clinical researchers with an Amazon-like experience for finding and provisioning structured and unstructured data needed for analytics.
