| |May 20185VOL 1 · ISSUE 6 · MAY - 2018T he Pharma & Life Sciences domain is witnessing the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data in the entire drug development lifecycle in a big way. Particularly, AI has breached in to help healthcare practitioners utilize data mining to identify risk factors for providing efficacious clinical treatment. Typically, the journey from a promising drug molecule to an approved therapy that can save lives can take more than a decade and cost billions of dollars due to redundant processes, increasing volumes and variety of patient data, and older technology systems that sadly don't communicate with one another.For many years, pharma companies have been watching other industries discover, design and implement advanced technology-driven solutions without taking action themselves. For example, `big data analytics' has only been on the radar of some big pharma companies in 2013 (later than may have been seen in many other industries). The life science industry has been a late adopter of most innovative technologies, despite the fact that they do have huge R&D budgets at their disposal.So what are the best guesses we have for the reason behind the slow growth of Pharma & life Sciences in terms of technology? Talent. Interest in AI-driven solutions for life sciences is definitely growing steadily among biopharma leaders, healthcare providers, and payers. The biggest challenge is talent. Relatively few people have deep experience with artificial intelligence (probably fewer than 10,000 in the entire world), and even fewer also have biopharma or healthcare experience, and you really need interdisciplinary innovation and collaboration to apply AI to solve meaningful problems in life sciences.Here in this edition of CIO Insider, we bring together few Pharma industry players who have the taken the leap of faith in an industry with such immense potential but lesser attentions. We have put together a list of 10 most recommended Pharma & Life Sciences Providers. Lets see if the drug development cycle or the R&D bar rises any caliber for your organization. You will let us know I believe. Emmanuel Christi DasEditoremmanuel@cioinsiderindia.comA Domain So Crucial that It Almost Didn't Cross Your Mind!
