Four Reasons You're Not Harnessing Big Data for R&D, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 18, 2016) - Harnessing The Potential Of Big Data For The Life Sciences Industry, a September 2016 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of PerkinElmer and Attivio, surveyed 112 life sciences experts involved with data analytics and visualization regarding the challenges faced. Rising to the top, are issues around too many data sets, unstandardized formats, multiple data sources (many outside the firewall), and lack of business-friendly analytics.

The webinar will discuss the findings from Forrester's study, exploring insights such as:

  • What are the most challenging factors in data analytics?
  • Why is data aggregation so difficult?
  • How to derive actionable insights from R&D data?
  • The top benefits of improving data analytics capabilities

The live broadcast takes place on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK), featuring guest speaker Rowan Curran, Forrester Analyst, Application Development & Delivery Professionals, and Brendon Kellner, Presales Consultant at PerkinElmer, as the keynote speakers.

Kellner will also share case studies of leading research organizations that are unlocking their data with the latest technologies: providing scientists and clinical researchers with an Amazon-like experience for finding and provisioning structured and unstructured data needed for analytics.
