SharePoint Conference for the 
Life Sciences Industry


October 4, 2012   |   Hilton - San Diego Bayfront   |   San Diego, CA 


As 2012 steadily moves to our rearview mirror, we continue to observe the growing demand in the pharmaceutical industry to better leverage SharePoint. This widespread trend has led to an increased pursuit of standards and best practices to improve SharePoint's scalability and sustainability. To help the industry better understand how SharePoint can be effectively used throughout various life science environments, PHARMICA Consulting is proud to host its 7th SharePoint Conference for the Life Sciences Industry.

9:15      Retrospective Look at SharePoint in the Life Sciences Industry
             Given the success of the SharePoint for the Life Sciences conference series, we will kick off
             this inaugural West Coast event with a retrospective look at some of the SharePoint case
             studies that pharmaceutical companies have presented over the past six conferences. This
             montage of real-life usage examples will provide first time attendees with a chance to see
             some of the more creative ways SharePoint has been used to solve business challenges
             across the industry.

10:00  Making SharePoint Chemically Aware
The use of SharePoint collaboration software for content management has become a     
           critical part of today's drug discovery process.  SharePoint 2010 software has laid a 
           foundation which enables researchers to collaborate and search on various content. The
           amount of data generated during a transition of a single compound from preclinical 
           discovery to commercialization can easily reach terabytes; thus there is high demand for a
           chemically aware search algorithm that supplements SharePoint to enable researchers to 
           query more effectively. A Chemically Aware system supplementing SharePoint is a step 
           towards making the drug discovery process more efficient and to search in a more intuitive
           way. It also significantly helps researchers by allowing them to tag documents with 
           molecular entities and integrating them with image recognition software to find information 
           contained in .pdf documents.

10:45 Networking & Refreshment Break
11:15     Collaboration in SharePoint: What does it mean for Partnering and Project Teams
Tools to help study and project team members have not kept pace with the needs of global
              projects.  With the advent of web 2.0 technology, coupled with increased outsourcing,
              portals have emerged as a necessary tool to effectively manage trials.  This presentation
              will discuss and review how:
  • SharePoint fits into the clinical trial space
  • Biotech companies can utilize SharePoint across the entire organization
  • To properly implement SharePoint in this environment
  • It is critically important to focus on people and behaviors

 Mark Yuzuk,  Director, Collaboration Services

12:00 Lunch and Networking
1:30     SharePoint as a Global Project Management and Centralized Reporting Portal
Study and project managers were spending too much time manually assembling status
             reports, and aggregating data for senior management review requirements. Consequently,
             SharePoint sites have been deployed to provide study and project managers with
             enhanced tools for managing projects and automating the reporting process. Further      
             integration has been achieved to allow for a set of standard reports in a centralized      
             Global  Project management Reporting Portal. This presentation reviews some of the    
             business challenges that were overcome and how SharePoint is being effectively used to   
             manage the entire R&D pipeline.
