Talking SAP in Life Sciences

You do not need us to tell you that the life science and pharmaceutical industry is constantly changing. You are equally aware that the need for efficiency improvements is urgently required in this competitive market. At the same time, increasingly strict regulations result in a call for more transparent work practices. How do you deal with this complexity and the challenges that are unique to the life science and pharmaceutical sector?

Join us on the afternoon of the 19th May;  interact with SAP Customers, NTT DATA Business Solutions Experts and other delegates within our innovative virtual platform. We will discuss the challenges faced by your sector and share recent examples of life sciences organizations who are rapidly introducing new technology to build resilience in their operations.

There will be plenty of interaction with open forums, live chat, meet our experts and Q&A sessions. We will also have panel discussions and optional networking rooms to create an environment of collaboration and information sharing.

Chief Technology Officer

I have responsibility for defining and driving the evolution of the business in step with our customers and partners. I spend most of my time listening and learning from 3 sets of people; our customers, our partners and our employees to ensure that we are able to imagine, describe and deliver the innovative solutions that will ensure our customers future success. Before NTT DATA Business Solutions I worked in a variety of Consulting and Management roles in the field of Data Management and Business Intelligence for nearly 20 years and I regularly present at industry events in the UK and beyond. When not at work I spend most of my spare time either drinking wine with my Wife, playing Lego with my sons or getting depressed supporting Tottenham Hotspur.

itelligence is now NTT DATA Business Solutions
We will be even stronger for our clients, partners and employees.
