Leverage Analytics from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to Maximize Production and Maintain Regulatory Compliance

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM |

Realizing the benefits of a Connected Enterprise is a top priority for most manufacturers. Pharmaceutical companies have been struggling to implement serialization and supply chain traceability solutions to meet regulatory deadlines. However, few realize that the difficult lessons learned to meet the DSCSA regulatory deadlines are the same lessons that must be learned to achieve a Connected Enterprise. This presentation discusses the interoperable challenges that must be solved and the foundational role that serialization & supply chain product traceability plays in achieving the promise of the Connected Enterprise. Learn how Mobility, IIoT, Cloud, Security, Digital Thread, Big Data and Analytics are all related and what problems they are trying to solve. Which is the most important? This talk will break down these topics and discuss an approachable, achievable strategy to digital transformations.
