San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Pharmica Consulting is widely considered to be the life sciences expert in SharePoint and collaboration. As part of its continued service to the life sciences industry, Pharmica will be hosting its 7th SharePoint conference on October 4 in San Diego, CA. The one day conference will highlight real world case studies and help the industry better understand how SharePoint can be effectively used throughout various life science environments. The use of SharePoint collaboration software for content management has become a critical part of today's drug discovery process. Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) has been added to the agenda as a speaker.
“The use of SharePoint is becoming essential for effectively managing drug trials,” said Matt Kiernan, Partner with Pharmica Consulting. “During their presentation ‘Collaboration in SharePoint: What does it mean for Partnering and Project Teams,’ Bristol-Myers Squibb will discuss how SharePoint fits into the clinical trial space and how biotech companies can utilize it throughout their organization.”
“It’s important to implement SharePoint properly,” said Eric Lake, Partner with Pharmica Consulting. “SharePoint offers tools that help study and project managers keep up with pace when it comes to global projects. BMS will talk about this and how critical it is to pay attention to people and their behaviors during projects.”
“Portals have emerged as a necessary tool to manage trials,” adds Greg Cohee, Director of eClinical Services at Pharmica. “With the advent of web 2.0 technologies, SharePoint offers a lot to biotech companies – especially in light of the trend towards increased outsourcing. A leading biopharmaceutical company like BMS knows firsthand what SharePoint brings to the table.”
