See Use Cases

For pharma companies, the world is changing dramatically and they are facing many challenges to ensure they stay competitive:


  • Regulatory bodies put extra scrutiny on pharma firms when it comes to more innovative approaches to medicine
  • Patients are more inquisitive about improvements to existing drugs or novel drugs
  • Funds available must be mapped to the higher risk thresholds for transformative therapies
  • Budgets need to be spent wisely so return-on-investment can be measured
  • A growing need to innovate beyond medicine
  • Employees want a safe environment and inclusion on direction of research projects
  • Companies need to learn from past successes and failures and to collaborate across departments and with patients
