Additional Information

Biogen is continuing to build out a DHT&DS group to explore Big Data technology, Data Science approaches, Information Science techniques & Software Engineering practices to seek the best solutions for our massive repositories of complex data.
There is no single solution to the complex data problems Biogen is trying to tackle. In order to tackle the non-trivial visualization and analytics components we need to build a suite of new custom applications leveraging some of the most innovative ideas.
