COVID-19 forced Life-Science companies to reimagine the way they operate. Pfizer has adapted its Culture, Systems and Processes to drive increased visibility, control and collaboration that have achieved unprecedented results.

Join Pfizer’s Hugo Felix and Axendia’s Daniel R. Matlis for a “Straight from the Source” live webinar on 21-APR-2021 at 11:30 AM ET as they discuss how Pfizer is using Positive Disruption to manage product design across the lifecycle.


Using Connected Manufacturing to Overcome a Disrupted Life-Sciences Reality

Webinar Available On-Demand

By: Sandra K. Rodriguez, Market Analyst

The current pandemic has fundamentally shifted the need for modern manufacturing. Even while some manufacturers are maximizing production to deliver critical medical products, others are operating with skeleton crews to ensure business continuity.

I was recently joined by James Zhang, VP Market Development at PTC, in a Straight from the Source Webinar in our Series focusing on Technology’s Role in Overcoming a Disrupted Life-Sciences Reality. 

Connecting manufacturing equipment, people and process is enabling companies to improve resilience by increasing process visibility, efficiency, and throughput, while maintaining social distancing. Companies that have been impacted by reducing hours or shutdown, are leveraging this time to revisit their digital strategy for the shop floor.

“Companies have already been actively pursuing digital transformation prior to the pandemic, but the strains of COVID-19 and the economic uncertainty have forced them to accelerate transformation journey in factories,” said Zhang. The resilience and double-digit financial impact that digital transformation initiatives provide are more critical than ever whether the company is struggling with reduced demand or accelerated production. The companies that focus on transformation in the face of current market conditions will emerge in a stronger position than those remain tactically focused,” added Zhang.

Companies that balance their immediate priorities with new, strategic initiatives, stand to gain significant advantages as conditions normalize. Watch this webinar on-demand as we discuss:

  • The Need for Visibility, Collaboration and Control – Today and in the Future
  • Driving Operational Effectiveness During COVID19 and Beyond
  • Regulatory Support in Times of Crisis
  • Learning from Success: How Manufacturers are Rising to the Challenge of Operating in the New Normal.

Data Governance: the Foundation for Data Integrity and Digital Transformation

An Axendia Straight from the Source Webinar

Life-Science companies are obsessed with collecting data, retaining and hoarding it to meet statutory and regulatory requirements.

Unfortunately, most companies do not manage these data and as a result are unable to harness it to improve quality, compliance or process efficiency.

A formal data governance program supports the definition, production, and usage of data across its lifecycle to manage risk and improve the quality of data assets.

Join Joseph Ricci from Absolute Integration Inc., and Axendia’s Daniel R. Matlis for a live webinar on 04-March-2020 at 11:00 AM ET to learn how Data Governance is the foundation for data integrity and digital transformation.

We will discuss:

• The business, regulatory and technology benefits of formalizing Data Governance
• Building and formalizing a meaningful and non-invasive program
• Data Governance as a process, not a project
• How to use Data Governance as the foundation for data integrity and digital transformation.
