Rise of the data cloud: Roche and Snowflake discuss data sharing in the health sector

19.10.2021

The pharmaceutical company Roche is advocating for more data sharing and a culture of decentralisation when it comes to data in the healthcare sector.

In a recent episode of Rise of the Data Cloud, Snowflake spoke with Omar Khawaja, Global Head of Business Intelligence at Roche Diagnostics, to discuss this topic and share his view on emerging data and analytics trends.

According to Omar “... it makes a lot of sense to centralise the management of infrastructure, yet empowering teams responsible for end-to-end data lifecycle management is also important." 

Khawaja expects to see increased interoperability across data and analytics solutions very soon, as well as more a strong focus on unlocking the value contained in unstructured data. He looks forward to the democratisation of data science so that more people have direct access to data to help them make more-informed decisions.
