Product Development (PD) is transforming to live up to the client 2030 vision of 3-5x more patient benefit at half the cost to society. To achieve this ambitious vision, the PD Advanced Analytics program (part of PD Informatics) is on a journey to develop a state-of-the-art, cloud-based advanced analytics infrastructure/platform for (data) scientists involved in clinical trials.
