“Democratizing data is now more challenging than ever as information architectures are getting more complex, both through the diversity of the data sources and the data distribution.

Data virtualization is a modern approach to data integration with real-time access to the required data, enabling users to gain faster decision-making and business agility while providing a consistent enterprise-wide governance and security framework,” states Chris Day, Director, APAC Sales Engineering at Denodo.

“There is no surprise that the world is occupied with the side of the moon we can see [AI] – the tricky side is the one we don’t,” said Dimitrios Kalogeropoulos, PhD, Digital Health and Innovation Expert, Senior Independent Consultant at WHO.

“Given AI/ML’s track record in transforming entire industries, it is surprising that it is still one of the most undervalued technologies in pharma,” added Peter Henstock, ML& AI Lead at Pfizer.

“The COVID-19 situation has expedited digital transformation, which is an unavoidable trend for businesses and societies. To realise the benefits of digitization, we must be agile and creative,” said Mithun Shetty – CEO, Trescon.

The show will be hosted on the virtual events platform Vmeets to help participants network and conduct business in an interactive and immersive virtual environment. Participants can also engage with the speakers during Q&A sessions and network with solution providers/sponsors at their virtual exhibition booths, private consultation rooms and meeting tables.
