Pharma & Biotech

Improve your efficiency and find actionable insights at each point of the pharmaceutical development pipeline

The pharma industry is moving from the era of blockbuster drugs into the age of precision medicine. Concurrently, new therapies are becoming more expensive to bring to market and the average expected revenue per drug product is dropping. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies need to find innovative ways to more quickly and efficiently discover, develop, trial, manufacture, and commercialize therapeutics¬- while continuing to drive top line revenue and improving patient experiences.

Improve your efficiency and find actionable insights at each point of the Pharmaceutical development pipeline with the AWS Cloud. Your organizations can access cost-effective storage and compute capabilities, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), patient personalization mechanisms, and access managed data sharing, all while meeting stringent compliance regulations.
