The informatics landscape is a difficult one to map. Competing suppliers, technologies, and architectures make the field confusing enough, but how informatics will ultimately shape the process of drug discovery—and indeed, the clinical practice of medicine—is an even larger question. Call it research informatics, systems biology, or bio-IT, the siliconization of the life sciences is a movement not yet fully understood.
That’s why Kalorama is taking a step back and letting leading figures in the informatics landscape ruminate on how things are shaping up. In this new sourcebook on informatics, nine thought leaders from industry, academia, and the government provide their insights, in their own words, on everything from the emerging role of the laboratorian to the necessity computing power to the new frontier of personalized medicine.
We’ve combined these individual perspectives with profiles of the top 25 companies competing in the informatics space. Each profile provides contact information, recent revenue information, core technology, key alliances, current products, pipeline products, and a strategic summary of the company’s position and outlook.
Although somewhat different from our usual comprehensive market research study, we believe that this sourcebook will enable forward-looking executives get a handle on how informatics is progressing as an industry and how it will impact the future of medicine.
