Warren, New Jersey, February 11, 2013 – Knowledgent, a leading industry information consultancy focused on maximizing the value of information to empower clients with actionable business insights, is convening industry executives and thought leaders to explore how scientific search, powered by big data analytics, will fundamentally change the game for life sciences research and commercialization of pharmaceutical products.
This ‘Scientific Search Symposium’ will be held at The Heldrich in New Brunswick New Jersey on February 28th from 8:30am to 1:30pm, and will explore opportunities to increase scientific throughput and effectiveness through expanded and simplified access and exploration of information assets. Areas of discussion will include:
How the latest practices in semantics, natural language processing and “big data” can be leveraged for better search and exploration
What the key success drivers are to providing information visibility and exploration tools at scale across the R&D Enterprise
How to meaningfully present a unified user experience across structured and unstructured information sources
How data sciences can play a role in delivering faster access to information for scientists
The interplay between science and information search, exploration and informatics
“It’s no secret that as Life Sciences professionals work to find new therapeutic pathways, better align therapies to individuals and optimize safety, scientists are requiring much more information at their fingertips throughout the product development lifecycle,” explains Shail Jain, Co-CEO of Knowledgent. “A key inhibitor to meeting this basic need is the fractured approach to information and knowledge management that has become typical across R&D organizations. Having conferred with several industry experts and thought leaders, we believe we have a solution and want to share it with the industry.”

Knowledgent is a purpose-built Industry Information Consultancy that provides advanced Information Management and Analytical (IM&A) solutions with industry-specific specialization in Financial Services, Life Sciences, Healthcare and Commercial markets. Knowledgent is founded with the mission to help an enterprise become more information centric. We chose this mission because while information has been recognized as a strategic corporate asset, its importance has now reached an inflection point: corporations that don’t learn to innovate through information and compete on analytics will be left behind by those that do. That’s because the extreme volumes of data exhaust now being generated by systems, machines and the Internet represents an unexplored ocean of data with unlimited potential of mining insights that can be used for instructive predictions about products, markets, customers and human behaviors.
Knowledgent is a first-in-category firm, built from the ground up to combine IM&A advisory and delivery capabilities with vertical domain knowledge. While the core capability of our firm is comprised of competencies that address business & IT strategy, business analysis, program management, information management, and big data analytics, the context in which we approach any problem is the vertical industry of our clients.
