September 18, 2018 / Jennifer Bresnick
Amazon Web Services (AWS), Accenture, and Merck have announced a collaboration to create a cloud-based informatics research platform to support advances in the life sciences. The project will accelerate drug development by improving efficiency and innovation in the early stages of the development process, the companies said in a press release. Researchers will have access to new data aggregation and big data analytics capabilities with lower barriers to entry. Standard application programming interfaces (APIs) will allow scientists to collaborate more effectively and conduct advanced research across disparate organizations.
