ERT’s Vice President and Global Chief Data Officer, Dr. Prakriteswar Santikary is a featured speaker at The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) conference in Las Vegas, NV. On February 13, 2019, he will present, “Modern Data Platform at Scale: The Role of Cloud, Microservices, and Serverless Architecture,” with examples of how ERT has structured its global data architecture to meet the increasingly complex needs of clinical trial sponsors.
Clinical trials are fraught with missteps and data quality issues that often create costly delays in bringing life-saving drugs and diagnoses to the market. Often, data quality issues and data integration challenges cause clinical trials to fail. Today’s complex clinical studies, which are also distributed around the globe, generate vast amounts of data from disparate sources, mobile health devices, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, systems, vendors, and clinical endpoints.
Not only is the clinical data voluminous, it often comes at tremendous velocity commingled with data variety, including a combination of structured, unstructured, and binary data formats. On top of this, these disparate systems are not interoperable in a standard manner, creating data silos and inhibiting real-time integrated clinical trial information for real-time decision making, risk analysis, and compliance monitoring.
Dr. Santikary’s presentation will focus on the architecture of a modern, cloud-based, real-time data and analytics platform that ingests any type of clinical data (structured, unstructured, binary, lab values, etc.) at scale from any data source. The presentation will focus on laying out the architectural building blocks of this modern data platform using “serverless” data pipeline, cloud architecture, data governance, and master data management.
