Accenture offers a fully integrated, technology-enabled global business service that helps Life Sciences companies improve R&D cross-functional processes, insights and outcomes.
Life Sciences R&D organizations face unprecedented business pressures, including increasingly stringent health authority requirements, unsustainable fixed-cost models, and the complexity of managing numerous vendor partners and technology systems.
Addressing these issues strains current capacity and operating models, and diverts precious resources from the desired focus—bringing differentiated new products to the market.
