Big Data and AI- Are They Good For Life Sciences

Over the years, financial industries have had a long track record of managing data and applying analytics to optimizing customer relationships and developing new services. Fortunately more and more life science companies have begun to fully embrace as well as seize upon the opportunities to organize and apply their data in a systematic way, be it drug development or patient care challenges.

Big data has taken off in a big way. Now, most organizations irrespective of the industry grapple with quintillions of bytes of data every day. They try hard when it comes to figure out an information management strategy that could accelerate the flow of insights. Which unfortunately complicates their big data solutions, increasing the cost of implementation and upkeep. 

Significance of Data for Life Science

Data certainty is not a new concept. Right from pharmaceutical development to medical care, life science firms have started making effective use of data. Due to which notable progress has been made in the efficiencies of drug development and the quality of insights produced at the research stage. It may quite interest you to know that big data does very little for an organization if it doesn’t know how to make the most out of it. This is the reasons why more and more pharmaceutical companies have turned to data firms.

Now there is a huge demand for increased access to valuable data but also for tools to automate data collection, archiving and analysis. There are times when life science companies feel a disconnect between the data experts and subject matter experts, this is where data analytics firms are creating better query results through the use of AI and machine learning.

For example, you will find several companies taking help of complicated intelligence efforts and turn them into a systematized, self-operating machine. The result is a user-centric approach to the way data is shared, meaning more people have access to critical research in the field that was previously unattainable. By using more and more intelligent machines, one can put more of their focus on understanding how technology and data could be improved especially in terms of operations. As a result, professionals in the life sciences and healthcare industry are witnessing a significant change in terms of technology.  

“Data and machine learning will dramatically reduce the time to market for new therapies, reduce the time and investment required for targeting rare diseases, enable precise and more personalized medicines, and automate key processes that will improve efficiency by orders of magnitude.”- Gaurav Tripathi, CTO at Innoplexus, a data analytics firm

Final Verdict

Data is the lifeblood of any business. Henceforth, t is worth considering what kind of databases and automated tools will serve you best. So that’s all for now! Keep watching the space to know more.
