Collaboration as the key to turning around the drug discovery business (Part 2) – The Hypothesis

August 7, 2011

The Hypothesis

Challenges facing individual researchers and drug discovery organizations could potentially be addressed en masse if collaborative processes and technologies were embraced to realize the economic benefits of well-integrated specialization. Collaborative capabilities (when well developed, implemented, & adopted), allow multiple individuals to combine various ideas and perspectives, as if they were all coherently contained in a single brain.  Collaborative capabilities (when well developed, implemented, & adopted) with secure data partitioning capabilities “in the cloud” allow multiple specialized organizations, to work naturally, as if one company.
