Inventages annonce sa collaboration avec SAP en vue du développement d'une nouvelle génération d'entreprises de médecine personnalisée

Inventages (un fonds d'investissement mondial dans le domaine de la santé soutenu par Nestlé) a annoncé aujourd'hui sa collaboration avec SAP AG en vue d'intégrer une approche globale de la gestion des maladies, basée sur les mécanismes, dans les cadres informatiques de pointe, en vue de développer la prochaine génération d'entreprises de médecine personnalisée.

La médecine personnalisée utilise des informations génétiques et non génétiques, telles que les facteurs environnementaux, pour personnaliser la prévention, le diagnostic et le traitement des maladies. Jusqu'ici, cependant, ces solutions étaient souvent fragmentées et incomplètes, ne portant que sur un sous-ensemble de facteurs influents. Les solutions de médecine personnalisée de demain seront holistiques ; intégrant les informations génomiques d'un patient, ses antécédents médicaux et des facteurs environnementaux et liés à son mode de vie. Cette approche plus globale de la gestion des maladies nécessitera l'intégration de plusieurs sources de données, ainsi que la structuration et l'analyse de volumes de données importants. Cette capacité sera essentielle pour assurer le succès et la longévité d'une solution de médecine personnalisée.

Cette collaboration entre un fonds d'investissement mondial dans le domaine de la santé et une des plus grandes sociétés informatiques mondiales permettra aux entreprises émergentes de ce secteur de disposer à la fois de capitaux et d'une expertise et de ressources importantes. Elle tirera profit de l'expérience d'Inventages dans le développement de produits validés cliniquement, hautement efficaces et de l'expertise de SAP dans la construction et l'exploitation de plateformes et d'écosystèmes informatiques complexes.

« Inventages s'intéresse à la médecine personnalisée depuis plusieurs années et par conséquent, nous reconnaissons que la gestion des maladies doit nécessairement prendre une dimension globale ; tous les facteurs qui influencent la santé d'un patient doivent être pris en compte. Inventages et SAP ont une vision similaire consistant à faire progresser la médecine personnalisée au moyen de la technologie de l'information. Cette collaboration permettra à nos entreprises d'accéder aux capacités et aux ressources uniques de SAP dans les secteurs du mobile, du Cloud et du traitement des gros volumes de données », a déclaré le docteur Gunnar Weikert, président et associé directeur d'Inventages.

« Nous sommes enchantés de pouvoir collaborer avec Inventages et Nestlé et associer nos capacités complémentaires dans les domaines de la santé et de l'informatique », a déclaré le docteur Stefan Sigg, vice-président directeur de SAP HANA®, SAP AG. « Inventages et Nestlé apportent une expertise solide et objective dans le développement de technologies de santé, y compris la conception et l'organisation d'essais cliniques, et la compréhension des règlements et directives complexes en matière de remboursements. Nous sommes certains que cette collaboration nous permettra de découvrir et de mettre au point des solutions de santé innovantes dans le but d'améliorer la vie des patients ».

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
