The Power Of Oracle Life Sciences Data Hub (LSH)

We know that LSH is a clinical data integration platform, but it can also be used as a computing environment that gives tremendous power and flexibility to a PLSQL programmer to extend the functionalities.
I can take an example of safety analysis and reporting which are a part of any safety package: Argus, Phase Forward Emperica, ARISg etc. If a client has LSH and doesn't want to invest on a safety system then will that prevent the client from performing pharmacovigilance analysis? The answer is a big "NO" because LSH can be configured to address drug risk analysis and signal detection. The power of LSH lies in its set of load set adaptors which can easily be leveraged to load and transform the necessary data sets in its data repository. Moreover OBIEE also comes bundled with LSH and hence it is easy for a PLSQL programmer to develop the programs to generate the risk analysis and signal detection graphs and reports in OBIEE. It is all in the hands of a PLSQL programmer.
I intend to publish a series on the power of LSH based on the inputs provided by the readers and the discussion that shapes up over a period of time.
