When a company is growing, business leaders responsible for various departments like R&D, marketing, quality, regulatory, manufacturing and IT start to see the symptoms of growing organization and pain points in bringing new products to market faster. This is even more challenging for a life sciences company due to regulatory and compliance-driven environment.

In such a situation, business leaders realize that a transformation is needed in business processes and systems in the area of product innovation, product development and product data management. This change not only needs a new system or business platform that can enable cross-functional people collaboration, but also a relook at current processes and way of working. Transformation requires a streamlined and harmonized process across the product lifecycle that can help and support respective department users to keep up with company goals. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is often defined as a combination of those streamlined processes and Product Innovation Platform (PIP).

After recognizing that such a transformation is needed, the next step is to realize it. In a multi-disciplinary product company with cross functional teams and global organization, it is not always a straight forward path towards a truly global and long-term PLM solution. In this free webinar, featured speakers will provide an overview of what steps need to be taken to make it happen. They will also discuss what needs to be considered when selecting such a solution to best suit a company’s business and vision.
