EVANSTON, Ill. – Feb. 6, 2020 – ARMADA™ – a cloud-based data analytics platform from life sciences consulting firm Beghou Consulting – was recognized as one of the most innovative products of 2019 by PM360, a magazine written for marketing executives in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and diagnostics industries. This marks the second straight year Beghou has earned this award.
ARMADA – which stands for Adaptable, Resilient Multiprocessing Architecture for Data Analytics – enables life sciences commercial teams to more efficiently manage and analyze vast amounts of data from a single configurable platform. ARMADA allows commercial operations teams to quickly load data, process it, and execute data management and analysis projects.
“Our product development team is honored to win this award again. ARMADA is a best-in-class platform that brings together the entire data management and analysis ecosystem for life sciences commercial teams and integrates seamlessly with our other technology products,” said Piotr Kula, an associate partner at Beghou Consulting and one of the developers of ARMADA. “As more data becomes available, life sciences companies need powerful analytics platforms to help them manage, process and generate insights with this data. We built ARMADA to address this need and equip commercial teams with a toolkit they can use to extract the most value from their data.”
ARMADA, which is built on Apache Spark with Databricks, offers a comprehensive set of advantages for life sciences companies. These include:
- Unprecedented visibility into data processes: Companies can track data warehouse status, data delivery schedules, data field origin, complex data manipulations, business logic, and downstream dependencies in real time through a user-friendly interface.
- Scaling with data needs: ARMADA’s robust and dynamically scaling architecture can handle data volumes of any size — from small sets to hundreds of terabytes.
- Increased control over data: Commercial operations teams can view the status of data processing around the clock or use ARMADA to manage all processing and analysis in-house.
- A customizable monitoring dashboard: ARMADA enables companies to compile information about their jobs and data sources, provides summaries of job completions, and runs performance metrics.
Beghou Consulting’s ARMADA was selected as one of 2019’s most innovative products as part of PM360’s eighth Annual Innovations Issue. PM360 created this annual issue to serve as a comprehensive guide to the latest advancements in health care and life sciences, recognizing innovation across products, companies, divisions, services, startups and strategies.
“Innovation is one of the keys to success in any industry, but it doesn’t come without real effort. That is why we established this industry-first guide to innovation eight years ago to provide a comprehensive look at the companies who excel at this difficult task,” said Anna Stashower, CEO and publisher of PM360. “This year’s issue continues that tradition and provides our industry with a look at the latest offerings, services, ideas, and strategies in the industry that are helping to push healthcare and life sciences forward—and make it easier to better serve all healthcare stakeholders.”
