The following is a guest post by Ton van Daelen, PhD, Senior Product Director, BIOVIA ScienceCloud. As corporations are defining their research informatics cloud strategies, it is becoming clear is that this will be a “measured migration” rather than a “lift-and-shift” operation. During this migration, organizations will support a “hybrid-cloud” […]
The following is a guest post by Alan S. Louie, Ph.D., Research Director at IDC Health Insights. Companies in the life sciences are well along the path to industry transformation in the shadow of blockbuster patent expirations. Changes in the industry have been unusually dramatic and swift, resulting in core […]
The first day of training for Science in the Age of Experience 2016 has officially begun! Over the next two days, Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA has scheduled twelve hours of hands-on training with their product experts. With eighteen different sessions, attendees can master any of the solutions BIOVIA has to offer. This is a rare opportunity to learn the latest tips, tricks and techniques from the people who know it best.
After three crazy days of sessions at Science in the Age of Experience, conference attendees get a night off to explore the city of Boston. As one of the oldest cities in the country, Bean Town’s rich history offers something for everyone. Whether you would like to take a walk through time and visit some of the actual sites where key events in the Revolutionary War occurred, catch a game at the oldest ballpark in the country, view one of the most extensive collections of art in the world or explore the vibrant restaurant scene, Boston truly has something for everyone to enjoy.
The last twenty years have seen a massive influx of new, innovative technologies transforming the way we work, play and live. These innovations have reached into the sciences as well: every day advances in technology enable new approaches, techniques and methodologies. Yet as organizations embrace these advances, they must be conscious of how they can improve their overall R&D experience to truly leverage their potential. This year at Science in the Age of Experience you can explore new technologies with transformative capabilities in scientific R&D. The 3DEXPERIENCE Playground will house interactive exhibits ranging from virtual 3D models of a living human heart to projections of the quality of an oil field throughout production.
