How the ART of Communication Unlocks the Value of Data

Companies spend a tremendous amount of time, energy, and money to gain a competitive edge.  Often, that includes extensive research about the market, the competition, and recent breakthroughs.  Research is particularly critical to the success of life science companies, as each one is looking for the next potential blockbuster drug, compound, gene, or other therapy.  But what value is that research if it never makes it to the decision makers?

Recently, Knowledgent was called in to assist a leading biopharmaceutical company in their quest to realize the full value from their research efforts.   The company had invested significant effort to scour the latest journals, lab results, competitive landscape, breakthrough science, clinical trials, aggregation services, and internal research to determine where they should direct their strategy.  In this case, they were looking for therapeutic opportunities that looked most promising to address unmet needs in certain disease areas.

No network or computer time itself was as, or more expensive than the human time required to program the computer. Today, virtually all of the component prices have dropped to the point that the key constraint is now how fast capability can be delivered to the business.  Faster delivery begins with a strong foundation – at the data storage level.
