Industry data shows that support organizations that conduct annual benchmarking are far more likely to achieve world-class performance. Yet fewer than 20% of all support groups engage in benchmarking. In this session, you’ll review performance data from more than 200 support organizations, as well as several case studies that show how your peers have harnessed benchmarking to quantify performance, draw industry comparisons, identify performance gaps, and define the actions necessary to optimize efficiencies.
Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems. Every use case might be different and different use cases might need different tools. AWS provides a variety of options for your needs from RDS, EMR, Redshift, Athena and Quicksight. In this talk we will discuss the different technologies available on AWS and its application.

Mass spectrometry-based protein assays impart increased specificity and more rapid development times versus traditional methods, such as ELISA. Coupled with immunoaffinity enrichment, LC-MS/MS is becoming a powerful tool for the quantitation of proteins in plasma. Such methods typically rely on synthetic stable isotope labeled (SIL) peptide internal standards to correct for instrumental variability. For more accurate protein quantitation by LC-MS/MS, experimental variations throughout the entire sample preparation workflow, including protein fractionation, immunoaffinity enrichment, and enzymatic digestion, must be accounted for. An ideal way of improving assay reproducibility is to add a full-length stable isotope labeled recombinant protein, that is equivalent to the native target protein, to the sample at the initial stage of the assay workflow. We have developed a set of stable-isotope-labeled monoclonal antibodies expressed in CHO cells as well as SIL versions of several clinically-relevant human proteins expressed in E. coli, such as IGF1, and in mammalian HEK293 cells, such as Thyroglobulin (manufactured as a Certified Reference Material). We will present data to demonstrate that the use of full-length SIL proteins and antibodies as internal standards allows for more accurate and rapid quantitation of biotherapeutic antibodies and clinically-relevant human protein biomarkers in plasma by LC-MS/MS.

Chris and Gordon argue that a lasting tendency to focus on outdated or improbable threats, risks alienating millennials and may even de-value the BC profession in the future. Take, for example, loss of staff due to a winning lottery syndicate, or even the ever-prominent focus on loss of premises. Whilst we cannot rule out any eventuality, is this really the kind of subject matter that will excite prospective millennial BC professionals?
Talking from their own experience and looking at the 2017 BCI Horizon Scan Report, they discuss the current threat landscape, arguing that with growing digitalisation and increased cyber risks, never before has there been such exciting prospects for young people in BC.

Muchas nuevas tendencias y realidades están acaparando los medios especializados en el sector de las TIC. Todos los actores relacionados de alguna manera con este mundo aseguran tener mensajes, productos, servicios o cualquier tipo de oferta para cada uno de los casos. La realidad suele ser más compleja, y con frecuencia los mensajes son inconexos.
Tendencias como la nube (en cualquiera de sus formas) y retos como la adopción de GDPR y el riesgo de amenazas de tipo ransomware pueden parecen a priori muy distantes entre sí. Sin embargo, la realidad es diferente.
Al fin y al cabo, estos tres conceptos están basados en datos. La nube nos permite mover, acceder o servir nuestros datos de una forma diferente; GDPR nos obliga a tener una visibilidad completa de todos nuestros datos para poder identificarlos, eliminarlos o presentarlos según demanda este marco legal, y por último el ransomware es una amenaza que secuestra y pide un rescate a cambio de devolvernos nuestros datos.
Los datos, por lo tanto, están en la raíz de estos retos, riesgos y oportunidades. Esto significa que una gestión y protección eficientes de dichos datos van a permitir estar mejor preparados para afrontar estas situaciones. Por ello, la visión unificada de Commvault aporta un valor diferencial.
Acompáñenos en este webinar, donde analizaremos:
•Cómo aplicar esta visión para mitigar los riesgos asociados con los ataques cada vez más frecuentes de ransomware
•Qué valor aportamos tanto a aquellos que quieran mover sus cargas a nube pública como a los que están transformando su modelo de IT interna hacia el “As a Service”
•Cómo ayudamos a estar más preparados para el cumplimiento de GDPR gracias a nuestro indexado de contenido y conocimiento detallado del dato corporativo

There is a surge in hype around Artificial Intelligence. Startups are raising hundreds of millions of dollars by bedazzling investors with Deep Learning, word embeddings, and reinforcement learning. This is a distraction from the very real problems that data and AI can solve if done right. By working across dozens of machine learning problems that are live in the real world, I’ve worked out the most common problems encountered and recurring design patterns on how to solve real-world problems using AI as a tool. This talk will arm you with a perspective on how to get pragmatic solutions with AI today.
It is now recognized that target and compound identification, as well as validation, are better conducted using cells with physiologically relevant phenotypes and genotypes. This assertion has accelerated the adoption of primary cells, stem cells, or patient-specific cells in cellular research, in general; and drug discovery, in particular.
Technological improvements in three-dimensional (3D) cell culture technology, as a means to better mimic in vivo physiology, have accelerated recently—not only in the areas of cancer and neurological research, but also for the assessment of compound metabolic and toxicological liabilities. Furthermore, 3D cell culture can provide novel approaches to the scale-up and manufacture of biologically based medicines, including those used in immuno-and stem cell-based therapies.
In this presentation, the existing and future impact of 3D cell culture technology on fundamental research, and drug discovery and manufacture will be addressed, particularly in the context of using phenotypically relevant cells. Specifically, it will discuss the potential for spheroids, organoids, scaffolds, and hydrogels in cellular research and compound identification, screening, and development.
Future directions will also be covered, including organs-on-chips, hydrostatic flow technologies, microfluidics, and 3D bioprinting. Some of these approaches will allow for real-time observation of cellular responsiveness to novel compounds and drugs … boldly taking the researcher into a fourth dimension of 3D cell culture!

The question is not much whether to migrate to the cloud or not. That question has likely already been answered by many organizations and the answer is a resounding full steam ahead. But the start of the journey can be daunting especially with a lot of ‘as-a-service’ terminology floating around. Please join James Curtis, senior analyst at 451 Research, as he discusses not only some industry trends and what many organizations are doing but also a simplified approach to understanding cloud services and how that might best fit your organization. Because it’s not so much buyer beware; it’s more about buyer understand.
Cloud has changed the game when it comes to data analytics. Previously, organizations had to lock themselves into a particular architecture and level of capacity for three to seven years and do all the lifting themselves. Cloud on the other hand allows them to experiment with different hardware and software options, get more of the solution as a service and scale up and down to meet project spikes and accelerate busy jobs at will. This makes it much more viable for any company to get the advantages of advanced analytics against large data sets, without an oversize IT staff or huge capital investments.
Oracle cloud is specifically designed to help enterprises take advantage of cloud for data analytics—it offers massive non-variable performance, predictable low cost and broad choice of deployment and software options. Oracle and Qubole work together to deliver a new breed of data platform—capable of taming the scale, performance, cost and complexity issues associated with gaining business insight from data of all types.
Watch this webinar to understand:
- Summary of industry trends for big data on the cloud
- How Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is optimized for big data workloads from a cost, performance and flexibility perspective
- How Oracle Cloud Big Data solutions compare with on-premises and competing cloud options

On December 2nd 2014, provoked by the impact of `Deep Learning’ and other recent scientific and technical advances in Artificial Intelligence, Professor Stephen Hawking released a terrifying warning about the coming technological singularity and the existential danger of AI: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate," Professor Hawking said. "Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn't compete, and would be superseded".
Fashions in AI come and go - and the hype around so called ‘Deep Learning’ networks is not without precedence - so what is it about ‘nouveau AI’ that warrants such alarm?
Conversely, in this talk, I will endeavour to situate recent technological landmarks more properly in their historical niche; concluding, by foregrounding the computationally-impregnatable barriers which remain between ‘Deep Minds’ and `Real Minds`.
