Database Trends and Applications has featured an article highlighting the talk our own Informationist, Fabricio Silva, will jointly present with Takeda at Data Summit 2018 in Boston on May 22-23.
It will highlight two use cases for the creation of a data lake at the Takeda R&D facility. One is the analysis of vast quantities of genomic files, and the other is the analysis of real-world evidence, using the Knowledgent Cohort Builder to analyze the data faster.
Among the benefits of the Cohort Builder, said Silva, are that it enables self-service analytics. If a researcher knows a condition, disease, or procedure code that they would like to include or exclude, the person can iteratively zero in on a cohort (group of patients) on their own without having to program or rely on programmers.
