Inventages (um fundo global de capital de risco em cuidados médicos apoiado pela Nestlé) anunciou hoje que estão trabalhando com a SAP AG para integrar uma abordagem abrangente e baseada em mecanismos, a fim de administrar enfermidades com estruturas de TI de alta qualidade e desenvolver a próxima geração de empresas de medicina personalizada.
A medicina personalizada utiliza informações genéticas e não genéticas, como fatores ambientais, para individualizar a prevenção, diagnóstico e tratamento de doenças. Entretanto, até o momento estas soluções têm sido geralmente fragmentadas e incompletas, apenas endereçando um subconjunto de fatores de influência. As soluções de medicina personalizada do futuro serão holísticas; integrando uma informação do genoma do paciente, histórico médico, fatores ambientais e de estilo de vida. Esta abordagem holística de administrar a enfermidade irá requerer a integração de múltiplas fontes de dados e a estruturação e análise de grandes volumes de dados. Esta capacidade será um diferenciador chave para assegurar o sucesso e a longevidade de uma solução de medicina personalizada.
Esta colaboração entre um fundo global de capital de risco em cuidados médicos e uma empresa de TI líder no mundo visa prover as empresas de cuidados médicos emergentes com capital, extensa experiência e recursos. A colaboração planeja alavancar a experiência da Inventages em desenvolver produtos clinicamente validados e altamente eficazes bem como a experiência da SAP em construir e operar plataformas e ecossistemas complexos de TI.
"A Inventages tem dado atenção à medicina personalizada por vários anos e como consequência reconhecemos que o futuro da administração de enfermidades necessita ser holístico; todos os fatores que influenciam a saúde de um paciente necessitam ser considerados. A Inventages e a SAP estão alinhadas em sua visão de avançar na medicina personalizada através do uso da tecnologia de informação. Estes planos de colaboração provêm nossas empresas com acesso às capacidades exclusivas da SAP e recursos em processamento de dados móveis, em nuvem e em grande escala," disse o Dr. Gunnar Weikert, presidente e sócio gerente da Inventages.
"Estamos empolgados quanto a esta oportunidade de colaborar com a Inventages e a Nestlé, bem como combinar nossas capacidades complementares em cuidados médicos e TI," declarou o Dr. Stefan Sigg, vice-presidente sênior da SAP HANA®, SAP AG. "A Inventages e a Nestlé trazem profunda experiência imparcial no desenvolvimento de tecnologia em cuidados médicos incluindo o projeto e execução de testes clínicos, bem como navegação de complexos ambientes regulatórios e de indenização. Estamos confiantes que esta colaboração irá auxiliar a identificar e desenvolver soluções inovadoras em cuidados médicos com a meta de melhorar a vida das pessoas."

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
