With the explosion of genomics and other omics data, existing bioinformatics systems may struggle under the size and complexity of the data. Additionally, it's hard and expensive to keep a system up-to-date and optimized, while also trying to stay ahead of new technologies.
These challenges bring technical leaders back to the long-standing debate of whether to build a bioinformatics system in-house or buy from a vendor. Technical leaders are expected to identify cost-efficient and scalable solutions that balance the enterprise's immediate needs with its long-term growth. Is your bioinformatics system ready for the challenge?
