Life sciences companies increase adaptability through digitalization

Adaptability as a key requirement

How to be adaptable in a marketplace that is rapidly changing as well as highly regulated? Clearly, the current emphasis is on reducing time to market, delivering personalized products and services to customers, and further process optimization.

Which digital strategy to pursue?

Digitalization is the first success factor for adaptability. That is why many of our clients in pharma, medtech and biotech are working on their digital strategy. The question is how digitally supported and data-enabled the business model of companies will be in a number of years. What is the digital vision, and which customer journeys and key processes are digitally supported? For example, digital/digitally-enabled product launches, KOL contacts, research, clinical trials, and sales force optimization. In this regard, the effective use of advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and innovative technology can be of great value. Success can in part be achieved by involving external partners and suppliers in both the development and optimization of products and services.

IT requirements for change

With respect to IT, decisions will have to be made on how to organize and deliver the required digital technology. This means making choices about IT strategy, sourcing, transition to the cloud, and enterprise-wide IT organisation and governance. Moreover, are individual business areas able to take the lead in further digitalization?

Implementation defines final success

Making plans is difficult enough, but scaling up and implementing really define success and benefits. Usually, if properly trained and coached, employees are sufficiently willing to adopt the best combination of new work processes and technology. The choices here are about what digital leadership, digital skills and the business/IT transformation entail.
