Transformation based on large-scale projects is inherently flawed.

Flexibility is more important than ever for businesses operating in the digital economy. That’s why traditional methods based on implementing large-scale technology projects no longer work.

Today’s challenges demand smaller projects that can spin up fast, with the flexibility to adapt to new priorities. When business conditions change, your business has the ability to pivot and refocus.

Why Life Sciences Needs a New Digital Strategy

Although most life sciences businesses had already started down the path toward digitally transforming, the impact of the pandemic has created a greater sense of urgency. Seemingly overnight, pharmaceutical and medical device companies saw a significant surge in demand – all while struggling to address supply chain disruptions and adjust to production capacity issues and workforce constraints.

As they work through these issues, life sciences businesses will likely put a greater focus on digital technology to ensure they are better prepared to handle future disruptions. But the traditional approach to digital transformation, based on large-scale implementation projects, will not work. Today’s environment requires a nimble approach that allows a business to pivot and refocus as business conditions change.
