GlaxoSmithKline PLC Research Reports
On July 31, 2014, GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK) and Genmab A/S announced that an Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) interim analysis of a Phase III study, PROLONG (OMB 112517), reached the predefined significance level for efficacy (p≤0.001). According to the Companies, the interim analysis demonstrated that treatment with ofatumumab (Arzerra™) met the primary endpoint of improving progression free survival (PFS). The study evaluated ofatumumab maintenance therapy versus no further treatment (observation) in patients with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) who responded to treatment at relapse. Dr. Rafael Amado, Head of Oncology R&D, GSK said, "This interim result from the PROLONG study demonstrated that maintenance therapy with ofatumumab lowered the risk of disease progression in patients who responded to treatment at relapse. We look forward to sharing the results of the interim analysis with regulatory agencies to evaluate the potential for future regulatory filings."

Amicus Therapeutics, Inc. Research Reports
On August 20, 2014, Amicus Therapeutics, Inc.'s (Amicus) stock zoomed 20.35%, on record high trading volumes, to end the trading session at $5.50, after the Company announced positive 18-month data from its second Phase 3 study (Study 012) of the oral small molecule chaperone migalastat HCl ("migalastat") in Fabry patients with amenable mutations. According to the Company, study 012 compared oral migalastat to standard-of-care enzyme replacement therapies (ERTs) for Fabry disease (Fabrazyme® and Replagal®). John F. Crowley, Chairman and CEO of Amicus Therapeutics, Inc., stated, "We believe that this multi-year study unequivocally demonstrates that a Fabry patient on ERT with an amenable mutation can switch safely and effectively from ERT to migalastat to treat their Fabry disease," He continued, "This study was resoundingly positive and met our pre-defined criteria for success in terms of the co-primary endpoints of kidney function. These results clearly show that migalastat is comparable to ERT in slowing the progression of Fabry disease and continues to demonstrate a favorable safety profile."

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
