The right prescription for better processes

The pharmaceutical industry and its challenges

The pharmaceutical and life-sciences market is characterized by permanent changes and innovations. Alongside the resulting necessity for continual operative adaptation, companies see themselves increasingly confronted by regulatory demands. The result is a wide ranging spectrum of complex challenges.

Strong regulation

Legal requirements relating to product safety, compliance and quality are increasingly involving IT systems in business processes.

Increasing complexity

Although extremely complex processes must be managed, increases in productivity are essential. The focus often lies on operative improvements.

Pressure to succeed and reduce costs

Increasing penetration into new markets with new consumers requires innovative and efficient technologies as well as efficient operative procedures.

Re-organization of health service systems

Challenges in the financing of health service systems are leading to ever new initiatives from legislators.
