The next wave of digital change is here, providing forward-looking companies with an opportunity to act today to be ready for the future.
Historically, the life sciences industry has been slow to adopt and integrate digital functions across the value chain (from R&D to commercial). This is due somewhat to several misinformed orthodoxies rooted in the industry, including:
- We can’t change the way we discover medicine,
- We can’t deviate from in-person clinical trials, and
- We can’t rapidly scale manufacturing for new modalities.
This combination of product complexity and compressed timeframes highlights the need for a digital thread to accelerate the supply of complex treatments from clinical trials through launch and production and securely connect siloed teams and datasets.
Building the thread on SAP creates better collaboration for faster decisions and a lower risk of non-compliance or under-performance in supply.
