Emerging Trends and Technologies



The last five to ten years has been an era of breakthrough technologies in our industry. Technology has always been playing a critical role in addressing each of the challenges we face in the clinical industry.

Clinical data usually encompasses large volumes of both structured and unstructured data which day-by-day becomes an increasing thrust on conventional databases and technologies, which give us necessity to focus on emerging technologies of more capabilities and processing power. Our field is segmented into analytics, primarily dealing with informational patterns of data needing cutting edge technology with seamless capabilities combining computer programming and statistics.

Since it is a field of advancement, there have been many new technologies coming into the market such as cloud computing with statistical modelling, big data etc. The newer and more powerful technologies help us to better serve our customers who keep seeking a more empathetic touch and qualitative data in a more visual and accessible way.

New challenges in regulatory science, drug, biologic and device development provide new opportunities to recognise and leverage emerging technologies, computational tools or any other underutilised existing technologies. Emerging Trends and Technologies is a forum for determining interest in specific computational science topics, tools, technologies and novel approaches.
