• The Pharma and Life Sciences industry exerts tremendous force on the effectiveness of medicines and the quality of healthcare provided globally. As such, the Pharma and Life Sciences industry is also one amongst the fastest growing sectors. However, the industry is currently undergoing massive transformations. Growing patient demands, rising costs, supply chain loopholes, and complex government regulations have forced players in this segment to re-evaluate their position and market strategy. Thankfully, the advancements in technology have caught up with the industry and are enabling it to respond to a number of these challenges. Take Artificial intelligence and Machine learning for instance which are being increasingly harnessed by Pharmaceuticals and Life Science organizations in a bid to develop cures faster while dramatically decreasing the costs. Blockchain is yet another technology that is in the process of addressing the supply chain woes, promising organizations as well as patients better access and greater accountability. To top it all, compliance platforms have greatly eased the process of adherence to the evolving regulations. But, the need to better align IT against the operations still remain.
