AWS re:Invent 2018 is Here!  Are You Ready?

AWS re:Invent 2018 is Here!  Are You Ready?

 

Bigfinite is excited to announce that we will be attending the 2018 AWS re:Invent!  For the past three years, we have attended the annual conference and every year this event has continued to gain tremendous growth and take the city by storm.  Re:Invent is the largest cloud computing event in the world and a great event to learn more about the latest developments, technologies, and products in the AWS community.

Bigfinite built its GxP AI manufacturing platform entirely using AWS technologies. A 100% serverless architecture, leveraging AI and ML functionalities on AWS, with Biopharma algorithms developed by Bigfinite using its 30 years of experience helping the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industry to optimize their manufacturing processes. A SaaS platform, using the latest technologies while maintaining compliance.

With seven main venues across the Las Vegas Strip (Aria, Bellagio, MGM, Mirage, Vdara, Encore, and the Venetian) and over 40,000 people expected to attend, it will feel a bit overwhelming so we encourage you to prepare and arrive with a plan on how you will spend your week in Vegas.  From hackathons and boot camps to workshops and after-hours networking opportunities, there are numerous sessions to try.

In light of the event this week, we have prepared a list to help you get ready. If this is your first time attending, we suggest downloading the AWS mobile application to help navigate through the sessions and manage your schedule.  

    • Bring comfortable shoes: the distance is deceiving in Las Vegas and there will be a lot of walking from session to session so bring shoes that are comfortable.
    • Time management: because the event is very large, time is not always on your side.  Spreading across seven different venues and moving in large crowds is difficult, so make sure to give yourself at least 15-20 minutes before each session and do not book back-to-back meetings.
    • Keynotes:  don’t miss out on keynotes!  An important part of the event are the keynotes, this is when AWS CTO Werner Vogels discusses trends and changes and exhibitors get to learn the new products and big new features AWS will be releasing.
    • Take care of yourself: with all the activities and events, it is very easy to lose track of time.  Remember to hydrate regularly, snack often, and get enough sleep.

 

Hope to see everyone there!

Taking Smart Manufacturing “Back to The Future”

What does the future look like in a smart factory in the pharma or biotech industry? We believe a smart factory is a digitally transformed facility and operation that is reaping the benefits of increased productivity. In fact, some experts predict an order of magnitude productivity gain! It is this productivity gain we need to aim and think about when talking digital transformation, it is the vision and the clear long-term goal. And yes, it is super important because with a clear goal it is easier to prioritize which technology to try first and where or what to digitally transform first, in other words, the strategy.

A story about adoption – Pharma 4.0 at the world’s largest insulin manufacturers

Pharma 4.0 is a popular topic in this years ISPE Annual Meeting event in Philly and currently of great interest in the industry as a whole.

Pharma 4.0 is here – we need to understand the compliance implications of big data and AI

With Pharma 4.0 comes a paradigm shift in many aspects. We in the pharma industry know all too well that every move we make needs to consider compliance with regulation - it's in everything that we do. Yet we can’t ignore the promise that these new technologies come with while at the same time speculating about the regulatory aspects. Although it may seem overwhelming right now, we must change the way we think.  New technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning offer unprecedented analysis of real-time data and can even predict trends in processes, operations, and quality. You probably have heard this many times before, but it is truer this time than before.

Welcome to the Bigfinite Blog!

Just like many startups in Silicon Valley, Bigfinite started out as a disruptive idea: solve the current Pharma inefficiencies with the newest AI and cloud technologies.
