9:30 am - 10:10 am PERFORMING A REALITY CHECK: WHERE ARE WE IN BUILDING CAPABILITIES FOR THE ‘LAB OF THE FUTURE’?
- Map the industry adoption trends against available technologies to examine where informatics capabilities are developing and which areas are not
shown as a priority
- Examine the idea of ‘Lab of the Future’: What is holding the industry back and where does technology need to developed?
- Strategise an adoption pathway to build your internal capabilities and develop your future informatics capabilities
10:10 am - 10:50 am BUILDING FOR BROAD BASES: DEVELOPING USER-FRIENDLY SYSTEMS THAT MEET THE NEEDS OF QUALITY AND R&D
- Analyse the disparate systems needs of quality assurance and R&D to identify the common denominators as a basis for systems development
- Examine the challenge of fostering user engagement and regulatory compliance within multi-team and multi-site systems
- Discuss how to approach the challenge of data integrity when utilising a cross-functional system
10:50 am - 11:20 am Morning Coffee Break
11:20 am - 12:00 pm MODERNISING PHARMA R&D BUILDING THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND CAPABILITIES TO UNDERPIN AN ANALYTICAL ENVIRONMENT
- Map out the chain of internal development priorities to ensure compliant and flexible informatics systems as the basis for an analytical environment
- Examine the transition to an automated and analytical environment: What are the critical success factors to be considered when building these
- Building on your informatics systems: Integrating analytical capabilities to utilise your data after optimising ongoing data management
12:00 pm - 12:40 pm BUILDING A DATA INTEGRITY STRATEGY TO ACCOMPANY YOUR DIGITAL ENABLEMENT
- Examine how to apply data integrity principles to electronic instrument data across both GxP and non-GxP development environments
- First things first: A case study on DI cultural change
• Changing the scientist mindset from ‘the instrument raw data is this print-out / PDF report’ to ‘the instrument raw data is this electronic data’
• Improving our ability to find and protect our laboratory instrument data over the data management lifecycle
12:40 pm - 1:40 pm Networking Lunch Break
1:40 pm - 2:20 pm PANEL DISCUSSION: DEFINING AN INFORMATICS-BASED APPROACH TO BUILDING A SMARTER LAB
- Analyse the growing combination of software, algorithmic tools and databases to achieve a unified informatics management system
- Map the evolution of ELNs and LIMS systems: Are they still an integral informatics solution or has technology moved on?
- Discuss the industry priorities when evaluating potential suppliers: Does this mirror supplier focus?
2:20 pm - 3:00 pm BUILDING INFORMATICS ENGAGEMENT: IS THE FUTURE IN SYSTEMS GAMIFICATION?
- Examine what lessons we can learn from the gaming industry when we consider building a gamification strategy for lab-based informatics systems
- Hear how Adaptimmune have been making their systems ‘more user friendly, more engaging and more responsive’ by embedding gamification into
their informatics systems
- Discuss the growing need for systems customisation and configuration on the part of suppliers: Why there is no one size fits all approach
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION SHOWCASE
Hear from three leading informatics systems and software providers on the latest technology innovations and systems capabilities to give you a clearer
understanding of what is available. Take this opportunity to meet with companies showcasing their capabilities at the forum.
3:30 pm - 4:00 pm Afternoon Coffee Break
4:00 pm - 4:40 pm DEALING WITH THE LEGACY SYSTEMS PROBLEM
- Discuss the growing proliferation of legacy data and legacy systems which pose a threat to your data integrity
- Build a data transfer strategy that prioritises data validation before migration
- Examine the ongoing challenge of new systems versus legacy integration and how team education can help to build compliance in the utilisation of
4:40 pm - 5:45 pm THINK-TANK FOCUS SESSIONS
Use this opportunity to discuss with your peers the key topics disrupting the informatics industry and brainstorm strategies to ensure you stay ahead
of the game. With a focus on looking beyond the HOW to address each problem and focusing on the WHY we are even trying – these interactive
discussion groups will give you a thorough grounding in the process development necessary to advance solutions internally.
Each think-tank will last for 30 minutes before you rotate to a second think-tank.
