Many life sciences companies have multiple versions of demand depending on the audience (finance, commercial, supply chain). These versions have their own right of existence but they can be merged into one used by commercial, finance, supply chain.
Innovative solutions for paradigm new therapies are emerging rapidly, which require new approaches to deliver such therapies to the customer (e.g. setup of vain-to-vain value chains). Building & introducing such new ‘runways’ in parallel of managing the lifecycle of the existing portfolio will continue to be a big challenge.
More and more life sciences companies are seeking how to increase their horizontal and vertical collaboration both with suppliers as with their CMO’s. Time to keep your digital roadmap aligned & connected across the value chain.
Life sciences companies have complex supply chain flows existing out of multiple stages executed at different sites. Orchestration across that network is key to ensure the product is available at the right time.
In the past 5 years, a lot of mergers & acquisitions in life sciences companies took place. These have been causing painful system integrations, but also are the source of very scatted master data tooling landscape. On top, while master data importance is quite recognized from an R&D perspective, in SC/Make/Quality master data stewardship roles are not embedded yet.
In addition, those companies will thrive that they can move beyond ‘compliance’ and leverage capabilities they have built and largely invested in (such as serialization), to turn them into a competitive advantage.
