Why Now is the Time to Develop a Precision Medicine Strategy

Hosted at Kaiser Permanente | Oakland, CA (TBD) 

By 2025 genome sequencing will likely produce in excess of forty exabytes of data.  Will your organization be ready?

Cloudera has been at the forefront of managing precision medicine data with a fast, easy to implement, secure solution.  Come hear Mike Olson, Cloudera Chief Strategy Officer, discuss how precision medicine is a perfect illustration of Big Data capabilities, and how relying upon technology platforms of the past may fail as healthcare requirements increase.

The session will cover:

  • The value of Hadoop as the basis for Big Data and why Open Source is critical as you look to expand your data management capabilities.
  • Cloudera partners who are investing in Precision Medicine platforms and the innovative solutions they have developed.
  • The steps you need to take as you evaluate options for delivering on the promise of Precision Medicine.
