BT And Accelrys Help Scientists Gain Valuable Medical Insights From Big Data

SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BT and Accelrys, Inc. today announced that the two companies are working closely together to help garner valuable medical insights from vast public health datasets, using BT for Life Sciences cloud compute solutions combined with Accelrys Enterprise Platform and Accelrys Pipeline Pilot.

The United Kingdom (UK) state-funded National Health Service (NHS) has been in existence for more than 60 years. During that period, the UK population has generated a wealth of health data and much of this information is computerized. In addition, a vast amount of information on the operational delivery of health care has been made available under the UK open data policy.  Similar datasets are available in other countries, most notably from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States.

BT has collated publically available health system and social care information into a research repository intended for use by the life sciences and health care industries as well as academia, initially hosted in the United States and UK, but available for global access. Such data can provide valuable insight into a number of healthcare topics, such as disease prevalence, impact of ethnic mix and adverse drug reactions. However, the information is often contained in very large datasets and may be unstructured in nature.

The combination of BT's Cloud Compute platform, the Accelrys Enterprise Platform and Pipeline Pilot has proved capable of finding buried value in massive amounts of data. BT and Accelrys are focused on supporting the Big Data challenges of their customers.   This initiative demonstrates the capabilities of their combined technology approaches as they focus through their collaboration on developing solutions to address the significant market need to unlock the value of large datasets.  The mutual goal is to let the scientist focus on science and not worry about the complexities of information management, particularly in a cloud environment.
