Watch our on-demand webinar “Democratizing access to AI/ML-powered insights to accelerate BioPharma process optimization” for tips on creating a more efficient path to process understanding.

Polar is a platform that securely manages drug progression in contexts of workflow, integration and insight.

Michael Barnes presented on Tuesday, May 16, at 10:00 AM EDT. Don’t miss his presentation “Reimagining data management to accelerate time to insight throughout the BioPharma Lifecycle from R&D to manufacturing.” Watch it below.

Despite the promises of Biopharma 4.0, most organizations struggle with tools and platforms that create data silos, integrity risks from manual manipulation, and difficult aligning data for analysis and modelling. Simply digitizing and consolidating data is not enough, unlocking insight requires a different strategy. We discuss how a holistic contextualized data backbone, linked to an advanced analytics engine, can expedite process understanding for faster decisions and efficient knowledge transfer.
