Big Data for the Pharmaceutical Industry

June 1, 2018

From research records to supply chain monitoring, pharmaceutical firms have been managing vast amounts of data for years. The amount of data under management continues to increase.

what can businesses do to capture the full potential of big data?

whitePaper |

Companies can expect high revenues from big data if they manage to optimize their processes or build value-added services thanks to a better understanding of their clients and their big data ecosystems. To do so, they need to build pragmatic data strategies taking into account their industry specificities, resources and environments. Starting small with business-oriented projects is key to testing what types of impact big data could have within a company. Company leaders should support this strategy and also need to consider the challenges they may encounter to make sure their strategy is coherent with their business. Marketing, finance and IT teams need to work closely together to select the right business model and go-to-market strategy to capture the maximum value. They also need to review their organization to gain flexibility and to build an internal culture that fosters data sharing and trust between employees.
