Gartner Selects Bigfinite as “2018 Cool Vendor for Life Sciences”

Gartner Selects Bigfinite as “2018 Cool Vendor for Life Sciences”

We are excited to share that Bigfinite was selected as a 2018 Gartner Cool Vendor for Life Sciences – the only company solely focused on GxP manufacturing intelligence and analytics!

Every year, Gartner reviews emerging tech companies that are solving difficult problems, breaking the status quo, and creating the next generation of innovation within their fields.  To be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor is very important to us and an early milestone for our team.

We started Bigfinite with a simple goal: optimize the pharma and biotech manufacturing processes using AI and the technologies embraced by the Industry 4.0. As Gartner puts it: “Bigfinite has developed the first purpose-built SaaS platform that enables the discovery of manufacturing process optimizations and economic efficiencies.”

The pharma industry is historically known to be hesitant in making changes due to regulations. But as we continue to see emerging values from new technologies, it’s becoming more evident that pharma 4.0 will be a key part of the future of pharma manufacturing.  When people think of pharma manufacturing, one of the stereotypes is people walking around in white coats writing information down in large paper-binders and storing them in rooms filled with large file cabinets and cobwebs, never being touched again.  And though most companies have moved passed this, most pharmaceutical companies still haven’t incorporated technologies we have available today. Why not get ready for Pharma 4.0 – store information or ‘data’ into a GMP ready cloud-based Bigfinite solution?

“Getting Ready for Pharma 4.0”, we are squarely focused on ensuring automatic data integrity and reducing any burden of safely managing GxP data in the cloud.

Earning this label from Gartner furthers our mission to help life-science companies deliver safer and better products to their patients.  We are excited to help advance the industry for the Pharma 4.0 evolution and glad to have been chosen by Gartner as a Cool Vendor for 2018.

2019 Xavier University AI Summit Reflections – Two Industries Ready for Change

Now that the dust has settled from the Xavier University AI Summit and our team is back to business, we’ve had time to process some of the highlights and key takeaways from the exciting event.  In the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the implementation of digital technologies into various industries that subsequently impacted the way we live, travel, and do business.  From driverless cars to 24/7 customer support chatbots, innovation and technology continue to spiral upward and as we’ve entered the 4th industrial revolution, and healthcare + biopharma should be no exception.  The Xavier University AI Summit is a great event that brings together a range of relevant stakeholders with common focus on artificial intelligence (AI).

Bigfinite and NNE Partnership

Bigfinite and NNE announced a strategic partner program agreement to collaborate around accelerating digital transformation within manufacturing operations at the world's leading pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers. 

Where are Pharma Companies in the Age of Artificial Intelligence?

They say good things come to those who wait; we say good things come to those who wait but only the things left by the visionaries before them.  The pharmaceutical industry has long been known to lag in the adoption of new technology due to strong regulations. Even though regulators have recently begun to open up to several new ‘big data’ or pharma 4.0 technologies - the question remains, if pharma companies are doing the same?  In 2016, the European Pharmacopoeia 9.0 in Chapter 5.21 announced that neural networks (NN) and support vector machines (SVM) are valid chemometric techniques for processing analytical data sets. 

Data Scientist 4.0 – Bridging the World of Manufacturing and Data

Since the announcement of the 4th Industrial Revolution in 2011, multitudes of emerging technologies have transpired around “Industry 4.0”. Technologies such as digital twins, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and cyber-physical systems have come into the scene as core elements, providing the necessary ingredients for a paradigm shift in manufacturing. Technologies around predictive analytics and artificial intelligence are pioneering new approaches with many use cases including predictive maintenance, autonomous process optimization, and pattern recognition - used to identify potential failures in real-time. Because of this, data science is becoming an invaluable discipline for our industry in order to transform information into knowledge.

Making the Conversation Real – What To Expect From The AI Manufacturing Team At Xavier University

Our co-founder and R&D Director Toni Manzano is a team lead for Xavier University AI in Manufacturing Team where, with the help of FDA officials and industry professionals, they address how the power of AI can be used to optimize manufacturing operations in the life sciences industry.

Taking Smart Manufacturing “Back to The Future”

What does the future look like in a smart factory in the pharma or biotech industry? We believe a smart factory is a digitally transformed facility and operation that is reaping the benefits of increased productivity. In fact, some experts predict an order of magnitude productivity gain! It is this productivity gain we need to aim and think about when talking digital transformation, it is the vision and the clear long-term goal. And yes, it is super important because with a clear goal it is easier to prioritize which technology to try first and where or what to digitally transform first, in other words, the strategy.

AWS re:Invent 2018 is Here!  Are You Ready?

Bigfinite is excited to announce that we will be attending the 2018 AWS re:Invent!  For the past three years, we have attended the annual conference and every year this event has continued to gain tremendous growth and take the city by storm.
