With the explosion of data in different dimensions of drug discovery, biomedicine and healthcare, a key challenge is the ability to connect the disparate data sources, discover the right analytics tools for a specific analysis and navigate through inter-operable analytics to provide executable insights.

Garuda is an open, community-driven, platform that provides a framework to discover, connect & navigate through different applications on devices as well as in the cloud. We provide an overview of the Garuda platform, the alliance eco-system and a brief demonstration of the platform in action together with its various components. Specifically, we focus on case studies of the application of Garuda platform in drug discovery pipelines – in discovery research, translational research as well as analysis of clinical data. We demonstrate a case study of how different sensors, wearables and monitoring devices are connected on Garuda to aggregate signals, analyze data-points and identify patterns to enable decision-making.

We summarize with a vision on re-imagining connectivity in the age of digital medicine, healthcare and beyond.
