Session Spotlight: Working Together: Team-Oriented Research and Cloud Optimization in R&D

Cloud computing is rapidly growing in importance as life sciences R&D organizations are inundated with data from multiple sources. Computationally complex imaging, modeling and simulation is on the rise—and limited funding and budget are leading pharmaceutical executives to explore employing cloud-based technology solutions.

The business advantages of utilizing cloud computing for R&D are multi-fold: streamlining of operations, increased communication amongst disparate labs, time efficiency, cost savings, and more. But challenges exist, namely: lack of data control, security concerns and compliance issues. What is the right move now—and what is the best way to assess what will be the right direction tomorrow?
