Event Details

The most successful companies set themselves apart in today’s digital society by honing their competitive intelligence and harnessing their  collective learning. Experienced thought leaders and industry professionals will gather at the 4th Life Science Knowledge Management Summit to light the way for developing a KM system that strategically impacts and is impacted by company vision derived by competitive intelligence.

Life science companies in particular require strategic KM coupled with big data access to maintain their competitive edge. Advances in technology have not only made it easier to capture and retrieve big data, they have also made it easier to learn and innovate collaboratively. Incorporating KM systems into a corporation’s daily decision-making and business functions is more vital today than ever before. In the short and long term, designing, implementing and governing a flourishing KM ecosystem will enable companies to adapt their business, avoid inefficiencies and seize opportunities.

This year’s conference will feature two tracks: a track focused on using KM to shape the vision of your company and drive business decisions, and a track focused on KM as a tool for developing the collective knowledge and fostering a collaborative and innovative culture to realize that vision.

Recognizing and leveraging the symbiosis of KM and big data is the new competitive advantage in the marketplace. Attendees will learn strategies for pairing the information from big data with the analytical capabilities of KM that are paramount to strategic and competitive intelligence.
