Abstract:
Data analytics and technology life cycles in biopharmaceutical development

The maturation of technology through a characteristic life cycle has an important influence on product success. Data analytics can be used to model the progression of knowledge and technological capabilities of therapeutic targets and classes of therapeutic entities through their life cycles. Our work describes how this progress correlates with successful product development and sustainable business strategies in the biopharmaceutical industry. This data driven and theory-based analysis of scientific and technological advances can inform investments, business strategy, portfolio optimization, project management, and clinical development.
