Regulated industries and organizations face tremendous pressure to meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements. This requires highly specific security measures and restrictions, and tends to lead to the creation of isolated data silos that make using and analyzing data a troublesome task.
Furthermore, the growing use of biotechnology in drug development has led to more complex manufacturing processes and, as a result, an increasing need to analyze and understand the data. These highly complex processes are difficult to control and anticipate. Therefore, it is necessary to take as much data as possible from different sources and of different nature into account to gain as much knowledge on the manufacturing operation as possible and as a result, optimize the processes.
