Technology is revolutionising our understanding and treatment of disease. Medical professionals and patients are all producing huge amounts of data on a daily basis from a vast array of sources including electronic health records, genomic sequencing, high-resolution medical imaging, sensing devices and smart phone applications that can monitor patient health.

Not all dinosaurs are extinct: IBM's reinvention

Sep 26, 2016

Time has been running out for legacy tech businesses like IBM. Few clients today are willing to pay for the inconvenience of physical technology on their premises given there is no longer any need to devote office space to servers. This new reality has been reflected in IBM’s declining revenues and continued job cuts – the company slashed 5,000 jobs in March and then announced another round of cuts in April.
