The convergence of big data, advanced analytics and automation have proven to be attractive opportunities for pharma companies to operate more nimble, collaborative and patient-centric processes. In an interactive roundtable, experts from Bayer, LabTwin and Cytiva will discuss, that while these technologies have made it possible for the pharma industry to grow as business needs expand, the adoption of cloud technology has been essential in streamlining clinical research, reducing costs and processing huge amounts of data in research and development (R&D).

Additionally, the scalability and agility of cloud technology in R&D provide organizations with the flexibility to control and store data and help replace data silos that result from legacy infrastructure – which hinders progression and increases development costs.

During this webinar, Nicolas Bernsmeier, Digital Lead Pharma Research at Bayer, Jonas Kulessa, Head of Engineering at LabTwin and William Whitford, Stategic Solutions Leader at Cytiva, will share best practices to manage data using cloud technology in pharmaceutical R&D and dive into industry driven case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of scaling cloud computing in the lab.
