Learning to Fish in Data Lakes





Today, clinical operations teams are drowning in data but starving for information, at a time of intense pressure to speed up clinical trials and restrain costs (1). The massive volumes of data generated during clinical trials are woefully inadequate at helping stakeholders spot risk factors and bottlenecks that can disrupt cycle times and budgets, primarily due to the inefficient ways in which operational data are captured and analysed, often relying on outdated methods such as Excel.

Aigenpulse

The life sciences industry is changing at a rapid pace. The need to develop the next blockbuster is pushing current technologies and methodologies to the limit. Scientific advancement over the last decades was embossed with giant leaps in knowledge, however, the new reality is that smaller incremental gains need to be carved out with ever increasing investments. In order to survive, progress and prosper in this new reality, a holistic approach to getting the most of research data is crucial.
