Software Applications and Services

As data generation increases, there is a need for workflows that are reproducible across infrastructures and empower scientists and researchers to apply cutting-edge analysis methods. One problem is scientific data are not centralized or standardized and are fragmented—from instrumentation to clinical research to legacy software. A second problem is critical validation of algorithms is commonly overlooked. There are real-world differences in data equivalence for integration and analysis, without adequate contextual information. A third problem is navigating vendor silos and deciding between all-in-one solutions or niche providers. The Software Applications and Services track explores these problems and how biopharma companies implementing solutions to drive data strategies and scientific decision-making by leveraging software tools and data platforms. Case studies will be presented on software tools to facilitate data manipulation, data analytics approaches, data methods and standards approaches, integration strategies, transparency, efficiency, security, and cost-effective solutions. What are critical approaches to validation of complex software development that will have to deal with missing/incomplete data, conflicting data, sparse data, etc.? These will become increasingly important as regulatory agencies evolve procedures and rules for implementation.
