Making sense of data analytics: How big data is transforming healthcare, R&D and manufacturing

The healthcare industry is facing a multitude of challenges. New diseases are emerging daily, and they are no longer confined by geographical boundaries. The rapidly aging population is also another cause for concern especially in Asia. However, the cure to today’s healthcare challenges no longer rests only on the shoulders of healthcare practitioners. Keynote speaker, Julie Olszewski, shares insights into the trends of the healthcare industry. She will touch on the challenges of today’s healthcare industry and how big data and analytics are key to overcoming them. Delegates will also gain an understanding of how different sectors can leverage data to improve patient care, medical manufacturing, clinical trials, and disease prevention.

An inclusive approach for a Big Data and Analytics strategy

The volume, variety, and velocity (pun intended) with which computational algorithms, tools, platforms, services, etc. are being developed in the Big Data and Analytics space that it can be a challenge for a business to define a robust, if not the best, investment strategy. Making this choice is a business decision as well as a technology decision and one has to consider various granular issues in order to derive a good answer. This presentation will focus on the specific topic of the need for balancing between using existing off-the-shelf solutions and investing in exploratory works that are still in the incubation stage, and where a carefully constructed synergy between the two could achieve best results. A disclaimer is that the points made in this talk are drawn from the speaker’s personal experience of working in multiple industries and not specific to any organisation’s Big Data and Analytics strategy.
