Accenture and Merck are working with Amazon Web Services to develop a cloud-based platform for collaborators across the life sciences industry, designed to speed innovation in drug development research. The analytics platform will be built with open application programming interfaces, the companies said, to enable researchers and to more quickly connect and to lower barriers to entry for app developers, content providers and others looking to bring new capabilities to market. Such an open platform will make it easier for researchers to aggregate, access and analyze data from multiple applications, enabling new approaches to data-heavy research, the companies said. The announcement comes just weeks after a similar cloud-based precision medicine platform was was announced by Deloitte and Vineti.
