Inventages anuncia que está trabajando junto con SAP para desarrollar la próxima generación de empresas de medicina personalizada

Inventages (un fondo de capital de riesgo mundial de las ciencias de la salud respaldado por Nestlé) anunció hoy que está trabajando junto con SAP AG para integrar un enfoque global y basado en mecanismos para el control de enfermedades con la mejor estructura de TI de su clase para desarrollar la próxima generación de empresas de medicina personalizada.

La medicina personalizada utiliza información genética y no genética, tal como factores ambientales, para individualizar la prevención, el diagnóstico y el tratamiento de las enfermedades. Sin embargo, a la fecha, estas soluciones han sido usualmente fragmentadas e incompletas, abordando únicamente un subconjunto de factores de influencia. Las soluciones de la medicina personalizada del futuro serán holísticas; integrando la información genómica del paciente, su historia clínica, los factores ambientales y el estilo de vida. Este enfoque holístico para el control de enfermedades requerirá la integración de múltiples fuentes de datos y la estructuración y el análisis de grandes volúmenes de información. Esta capacidad será un diferenciador fundamental para asegurar el éxito y la longevidad de una solución de medicina personalizada.

Esta colaboración entre un fondo de capital de riesgo mundial de las ciencias de la salud y una de las empresas líderes de TI tiene como objetivo brindar a las empresas emergentes del ámbito de la salud con el capital y la extensa experiencia y recursos. La colaboración pretende aprovechar la experiencia de Inventages en el desarrollo de productos clínicamente validados altamente eficaces y la experiencia de SAP en el desarrollo y la operación de plataformas y ecosistemas de TI complejos.

“Inventages ha estado estudiando a la medicina personalizada durante muchos años y consecuentemente reconocemos que el futuro del control de las enfermedades necesita ser holístico; es necesario considerar todos los factores que inciden en la salud de un paciente. Inventages y SAP están alineados en su visión para avanzar en la medicina personalizada a través del uso de tecnología informática. Esta colaboración tiene previsto proporcionar a nuestras empresas el acceso a las capacidades y recursos únicos de SAP en telefonía móvil, computación en la nube, y procesamiento de datos a gran escala," manifestó el Dr. Gunnar Weikert, presidente y socio gerente de Inventages.

“Estamos emocionados por esta oportunidad de colaborar con Inventages y Nestlé, y de combinar nuestras capacidades complementarias en ciencias de la salud y TI," expresó el Dr. Stefan Sigg, vicepresidente ejecutivo de SAP HANA®, SAP AG. "Inventages y Nestlé aportan una amplia experiencia objetiva en el desarrollo de tecnologías de la salud, incluyendo el diseño y la ejecución de ensayos clínicos, así como la navegación de los complejos entornos regulatorios y de reembolso. Creemos que esta colaboración ayudará a identificar y a desarrollar soluciones de salud innovadoras con el objetivo de mejorar la vida de las personas."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
