Pharma 4.0 - Opportunities & Challenges

For the First Time In India a Conference on Pharma 4.0

The world is changing fast with a great focus towards digital transformation to increase the productivity and decrease the cost. Making a positive impact on the business outcome is the primary focus during this journey. The fourth Industrial revolution which was introduced through a report during 2013 is getting shaped up as Pharma 4.0 within the Pharmaceutical Industry. 

Many of us think that Pharma 4.0 is purely a technical advancement within the Industry, but, it is not. It is all about implementing value driven solutions which have sustainable impact on the business through the adoption of emerging technologies as a part of Industrial Digitalization. Business stakeholders and end user benefits are of prime importance for a successful implementation of a Pharma 4.0 initiative. This is possible only with the help of a collaboration between Business & IT. 

The approach on the Digitisation Strategy should be Business-driven rather than the Technology driven one. The gap between the strategy and realisation should be monitored through appropriate governance with the involvement of business & IT. Obviously, the technological advancement happens with a risk of getting exposed to Cyber Security related issues as well. 

Here is an opportunity to understand more on Pharma 4.0 from the Subject Matter Experts and Industry Leaders on the fundamentals, how to scope the Pharma 4.0 based on the real business outcome driven approach within an organization, adoption of emerging technologies, Integration of digital information from different sources within the organization, Security considerations and the regulatory considerations while leveraging the emerging technologies by performing right level of validation, controls etc.,
