Anytime there are large sets of data from many different sources you run into the issue of how to integrate this data together.

Cloud computing allows large sets of data to be stored together from many different sources and collaboratively used and worked upon.

The problem with drug development is when the data gives the opportunity to make quicker work of development and the company rushes the release of a drug to turn a sooner and larger profit, but then comes the risk of following data protection regulations.

business cases as to whether a drug is likely to be needed — or financially
