Driving innovation in a highly regulated industry – See how that works at #SAPPHIRENOW!


Organizations – from the executive level, R&D departments and compliance departments to risk management and audit groups – are facing increasing pressure, oversight, and scrutiny by regulators, shareholders, and external auditors. As a result, professionals managing internal functions like R&D and manufacturing, struggle to cope with overflowing information requests, new compliance requirements, and rapidly rising demand while working within constrained budgets.

Healthcare and medical devices manufacturers belong to the group of highly regulated industries and they have the responsibility to provide reliable, highly innovative products that help save people´s lives.

Two weeks ago, I had a call with Digant Gupta, who is responsible for enterprise applications and integrated business systems at Applied Medical. We spoke about his presentation at SAPPHIRE NOW and about the most important points he would like to mention during his session. He told me that Applied Medical´s company vision is to provide innovative products that improve patient outcomes and enable the advancement of minimally invasive surgery.

For Applied Medical, it is important to have a significant and sustainable impact on healthcare by delivering technologies that enhance clinical care and satisfy the pressing economic needs of their customers.

So, I asked Digant:  how can software help a company with such high social responsibility achieve their goals? He said, that the company had always been committed to provide highest quality for their customers and has always met regulatory requirements.  But SAP software makes their R&D processes more transparent and more efficient. SAP Product Lifecycle Management helps the head of R&D gain aholistic product view and improve efficiency in the product development process. Manual efforts are reduced and everyone gets easy access to critical product information who needs it. Digant has a lot more to share with you: his experiences from go live, lessons learned and Applied Medical´s roadmap for Product Lifecycle Management.

Join #SAPPHIRENOW in Orlando on Tuesday at 1pm or watch his session online to learn from this exciting customer story.
