Life sciences companies are facing tougher obstacles in bringing new therapies to market than ever before. With an average drug approval process taking up to 15 years and billions of dollars to complete, new technological advancements are being leveraged to help manage the growing clinical, regulatory, and commercial needs necessary to accelerate time to market.

Veeva Systems is one of those leading technologies, offering a cloud-based solution that helps hundreds of life sciences companies accelerate critical business functions, from R&D through commercial. Veeva Vault, in particular, serves as a content management platform that can uniquely manage both content (such as approved marketing collateral) and data ranging from study results, safety/efficacy data, and much more.

To power all of these respective business functions, life sciences companies need to pull in data siloed across a vast network of CROs, clinical systems like CTMS and EDCs, real-world evidence data, legacy/ERP systems and hundreds of other sources. With an average business transaction – such as sourcing trial data results – crossing more than 35 different technology systems, the challenges of accessing siloed data can lead to life sciences IT teams managing a messy network of tightly coupled systems and applications. 

This approach can make it difficult to integrate critical data from new partners and CROs in a timely fashion, leading to duplicative efforts, poor data quality, and an increased risk of trial non-compliance. According to Cutting Edge Information, 72% of studies run more than one month behind schedule, and such delays can cost sponsors between $600,000 and $8 million for each day that a trial delays a product’s development and launch.
