This month’s infographic features big data use cases that organizations might find interesting regardless of industry. We decided to focus on industry-agnostic use cases because, based on our experience, some of the best big data innovation happens when organizations look at how the major players in other industries are using big data and think about how they can use similar methods, tools, and/or technologies in their own industries.
Check out the infographic for big data use cases that can be applied in any industry:

Knowledgent’s Life Sciences team had a great time at Bio-IT World in Boston earlier this month. Bio-IT provides the ideal environment for organizations across the pharmaceutical, clinical, healthcare, and IT industries to share insights and discuss how emerging technologies are impacting research and development. In fact, our very own Chris Young presented with Drew Holzapfel of the CEOi on the potential of applying big data to finding a cure for Alzheimers. (In case you missed it, you can view the slides from their presentation here.)
With significant changes in both technologies and the R&D landscape, Bio-IT was buzzing with a wealth of new information. Here are three of our key takeaways from the event:

Knowledgent, with our partners Hortonworks and the CEOi, are hosting a free webinar titled “Leveraging Big Data in Addressing the Global Alzheimer’s Crisis” on Thursday, May 29 from 12-1pm EST.
This webinar is not just for folks in the life sciences industry. It presents an interesting ideation case study for anyone interested in big data, using datasets from seemingly unrelated fields and sources, or understanding new potential ways to diagnose Alzheimer’s and improve patient care. During the webinar, we’ll discuss how big data analytical disciplines can support the global effort toward identifying key associations – rather than a direct cause – that can help us understand who gets Alzheimer’s, how we treat them, and how we prevent the disease for others by leveraging datasets across life sciences, healthcare, government agencies and academia.

Chris Young, Life Sciences Partner with Knowledgent, presented on current efforts to apply big data solutions to support the efforts towards finding a cure, early detection, and care delivery innovations for Alzheimer’s at Bio-IT World at the Seaport World Trade Center earlier this month.
