The pharmaceutical industry is perfectly positioned to enjoy the benefits of industrial IoT technologies.

The evolving and strict regulatory landscape within the sector has resulted in  cautious approach to adopting emerging technology. 

However, recent years have seen falling R&D productivity, cost increases, compliance and non-adherence challenges, patents expiring and stakeholder expectations evolving which is driving the pharma sector to look at IoT (Internet of Things) and other technologies for a solution.  

Whilst some early adopters have already started exploring IoT to enable end-to-end digital integration across manufacturing plants, supply chains, delivery routes, clinical trials, R&D and many other areas, many are still wondering where to start and what to do. 

Join us this January to discover how to create and implement a successful IoT strategy.
