Digital Lab Consulting (DLC) have played a pivotal role in the implementation of scientific data standards and significantly contributed to the R&D-wide Data Standards & Governance program for a global biopharma with over 20,000 employees. While the company already had processes in place to manage the key clinical data standards used, there was no overall coordination between the different functional areas of R&D on other standard terminology and no standardisation of scientific terminology in the early R&D space. Previous engagements with the company as part of our Digital Blueprint methodology had identified that the implementation of a global set of data standards and related governance structures were key to the successful implementation of new software systems, and would help increase the value of their data; treating R&D data as a key asset.
