To enhance competitiveness, pharmaceutical companies can leverage IT to increase speed to market and integrate collaboration tools to enhance working practices within the supply chain.

The pharmaceuticals sector is facing the following challenges:

  • Long time-to-market
  • Expiring patents
  • Declining in R&D productivity
  • Growing emergence of generics in the market place
  • Expanding manufacturing capabilities in developing countries
  • Major restructuring initiatives

  • Strategic sourcing of IT ensures that data sharing and connectivity to core business applications will meet business requirements across the globe to help maximise the value of R&D, IT operations and drive innovation within the business
  • Mobile working solutions support an increasing mobile workforce through the use of effective and fit for purpose technologies
