See how Phoenix Business Consulting plans to help the world run better and improve people’s lives with a digital life sciences network that simplifies collaboration across the value chain. Understand our perspective on where the industry will go and how we think SAP can enable the evolution of the digital health sciences network.

I. Innovation

As a significant component in major economies across the globe, every life sciences company must deploy systems and software that both empower and enable them to meet the many challenges facing this important industry including the following:

  • Extensive healthcare cost containment
  • Complex regulatory requirements
  • Managing global reach while maintaining local presence
  • Managing a complex supply chain that has recently become more volatile

Overcoming these and other industry challenges in the quest for success is a meaningful objective for every life sciences company supporting pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices and healthcare.

Lifelong health is the most precious possession we as humans have. Access to healthcare, the cost of healthcare, and the aging population are impelling life sciences companies to respond with agile supply chains and value-based outcome models, as well as to directly connect with patients to drive down costs and provide real-time insights.
The need for trusted products requires life sciences companies to serialize more of their drugs and medical devices, assigning a unique identification to tailor their supply chains to prevent falsification or counterfeit products.
Global supply chains require life sciences companies to have full, real-time demand visibility across complex supply networks spanning the globe.
The move from a linear to a circular economy
is causing the impacts on life sciences companies:
1) Increasing respect for the planet and the complete patient lifecycle by providing recyclable packaging and products, as well as transitioning to more service-based models that reduce waste throughout the value chain.
2) Improving collaboration across research institutes, healthcare, and other service providers to achieve better insights into root causes for diseases and improve consumption of healthcare services and provide seamless information sharing for better delivery of care.
3) Rising patient and provider expectations requiring companies to develop new digital skills and processes, address competition from unexpected information technology challengers in healthcare, and increase flexibility to shift global resources.

III. Embracing the Intelligent Enterprise

Even the most casual observer recognizes the rapid adoption of digitalization across every industry and Life Sciences is no different.

SAP considers companies that embrace these advanced technologies to be Intelligent Enterprises that are enabled to run their businesses more effectively.
