Mega trends like globalization, aging demographics and social pressure further amplify health-related perils, substantially accelerating the spread of diseases and increasingly motivating the population towards preventive health care. Powerful medical genomic analytics will be one of the key drivers to deal with these challenges.

Next generation genome sequencing technologies will replace a wide range of currently established partial and proprietary tests with one single holistic full-genome measurement per individual. This will trigger gigantic volumes of data, which can only be analyzed, interpreted, understood and managed by high-performance IT applications and services.
