12th Annual Oxford Global Pharma IT Congress 2014 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the 12th Annual Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal IT Con­gress 2014 tak­ing place on the 22nd and 23rd Sep­tem­ber 2014 at Dex­ter House, Lon­don, UK. Over the two days this well estab­lished and pres­ti­gious con­gress will bring together over 175 senior experts to dis­cuss the most press­ing chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties in the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal IT field.

    The impor­tance of IT and its role in the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Indus­try is becom­ing more evi­dent to key deci­sion mak­ers. This con­gress will explore pio­neer­ing solu­tions to chal­lenges such as big data, cloud com­put­ing, data man­age­ment, R&D IT and clin­i­cal data.


    On day one, our del­e­gates will ben­e­fit from hear­ing from those work­ing at the fore­front of big data solu­tions and cloud com­put­ing. Our experts will dis­cuss the appli­ca­tion of seman­tic web tech­nolo­gies, the use of super­com­put­ing in the pharma indus­try and the lat­est mod­erni­sa­tion of smart­phone and tablets.

    The vol­ume of data col­lected dur­ing R&D, clin­i­cal stud­ies and most recently real world stud­ies has put pres­sure on IT depart­ments to offer advanced IT solu­tions. The data man­age­ment stream will focus on stor­ing, retriev­ing and analysing data. Our renowned panel will deliver pre­sen­ta­tions on over­com­ing data secu­rity chal­lenges, com­par­ing data analy­sis plat­forms and inte­grat­ing non-​heterogeneous data sources.

    Stream 1 – Enter­prise IT: Tech­nolo­gies, Chal­lenges and Strategies

    • Max­imis­ing the ben­e­fits of cloud computing
    • Build­ing IT infra­struc­ture for Big Data
    • Devel­op­ing and apply­ing seman­tic web technologies
    • Embrac­ing new tech­nolo­gies: smart­phones and tablets
    • Super­com­put­ing for the pharma industry
    • Achiev­ing business-​IT alignment

    Stream 2 – Data Man­age­ment: Stor­ing, Retriev­ing and Analysing Data

    • Meet­ing data secu­rity chal­lenges in a data cen­tric world
    • Com­par­ing var­i­ous data inte­gra­tion solutions

    • Pri­vacy and data gov­er­nance in drug devel­op­ment projects
    • Inte­gra­tion of non-​standardised het­ero­ge­neous data sources
    • Real World Data: patient-​level data

    On day two, senior lead­ers will dis­cuss IT solu­tions to improve R&D within the Pharma Indus­try. Pre­sen­ta­tions will cover the use of next gen­er­a­tion bioin­for­mat­ics to enhance pro­duc­tiv­ity and the design and imple­men­ta­tion of a paper­less lab. Our renowned speak­ers will also explore the impor­tance of col­lab­o­ra­tions and open source inno­va­tions for the suc­cess of the Pharma Industry.

    The clin­i­cal data and clin­i­cal trial data stream will expand on the data man­age­ment issues dis­cussed on day two. Our esteemed speak­ers will present on top­ics such as: pri­vacy and data gov­er­nance issues related to elec­tronic health records, stor­age sys­tems for clin­i­cal data and real world evi­dence in trial design.
