Getting Your Data Ready for Precision Medicine

Share this post:

Data is flowing out of every instrument – faster and bigger each day – creating massive quantities of data that needs to be captured, stored, cleaned, analyzed and archived.

How can we:

  • Solve this BIG data issue to avoid a situation that data preparation is becoming a bottleneck?
  • Deploy comprehensive compute capabilities that support rapidly evolving frameworks and applications?
  • Enable collaboration among organizations across global borders?
  • Turn massive data sets into medically actionable insights?

Tackling these BIG challenges with the right approach to data will help you take advantage of new opportunities and derive faster clinical insight with greater resource utility.

We invite you to learn at Bio-IT World 2018 how IBM and its proven high-performance data & AI (HPDA) solutions are ready to support your most demanding analytical and data requirements today and into the future.

Building a foundation for precision medicine and biomedical workloads

Our vision was to design an architecture that will help you get faster answers to complex problems. The High-Performance Data & AI (HPDA) reference architecture that was developed is representing a new, efficient and holistic approach designed to help healthcare and life sciences institutes incorporate new data analytics technologies and apply cost-effective high-performance capabilities while simultaneously increasing agility and dropping time to insight.


Visit IBM Booth

Meet our experts in IBM booth #547 at Bio-IT World 2018, May 15-17, and see LIVE demos of:

  • The fastest and fully-automated clinical genomics pipeline
  • The world’s largest genomics database that can ingest and annotate 10 million variants per hour
  • High-performance deep learning and AI for cancer imaging
  • Data ocean for genomics that spans multiple public clouds

These demos will include real life examples of world class organizations that modernized their current capabilities and are now at the forefront of transforming biomedical research and advancing precision medicine.

High-Performance Data & AI for Genomics

Wednesday, May 16, 12:40–1:10pm (Luncheon), Track 2

Through real use cases and live demo, Frank Lee, PhD, Global Industry Leader for Healthcare & Life Sciences, will illustrate the architecture and solution for high performance data and AI platforms, deployed for cloud-scale data management, multi-cloud workload orchestration and converged HPC with deep learning. This presentation will also demonstrate the four key values of HPDA based on customer case studies — high performance, low cost, ease of use and collaboration.
