How Automated Business Analysis can Help Increase Supply Chain Productivity for Pharmaceuticals

Wouldn’t it be a game changer if pharmaceutical companies could diagnose issues for supply and demand, instead of just research and development? And, get updates on logistics, supplier performance, demand management, delays in delivery, or procurement? What if pharmaceutical companies could explore its potential use in other operational processes too? Today we’re going to share how Automated Business Analysis can help increase supply chain productivity of pharmaceutical companies.

Initially, pharmaceuticals invested in business intelligence (BI) tools to help management make critical business decisions from the volumes of data enterprises were handling. As these organizations were going through a digital transformation, an investment in big data analytics was the next logical step to simplify decision-making. But, only being able to visualize the data was the first step. The pharmaceutical companies needed more than only getting the answers to the easy questions. That’s where Automated Business Analysis steps in, evolving BI functions to where artificial intelligence (AI) can take business decision-making to the next level.
