The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most competitive in the world. The race to bring new drugs to market is among the fiercest and most important to pharmaceutical companies’ success. Missing the opportunity to get a new drug approved after decades of research and development is a devastating blow to pharmaceutical business.
The role of a well-strategized IT infrastructure is imperative to this success. For many companies, their current IT operations are sufficient for normal, day-to-day operations but do not have the resources necessary to ramp up for the grueling, time-sensitive drug approval process. Often the most efficient, cost-effective way to bring your pharmaceutical IT infrastructure up to speed is by partnering with an experienced, third-party IT change agent who specializes in organizational transitions.
The advantages of using a consultant are numerous. One of the most important though – especially to your bottom line – is consulting firms have the valuable ability to ramp up, or down, quickly so you only bring on the resources you need when you need them. And, you only pay when you need to. You have the freedom to decide.
Don’t Bring a Knife to A Gun Fight
Competing in the marketplace requires having the best resources available in your arsenal. Protocol Networks brings decades of experience delivering IT systems consulting and integration working with companies of all sizes and all verticals to supplement existing technological resources to facilitate change. It doesn’t make sense to enter into new ventures without the most effective resources in hand.
Here are considerations for when you hire a change agent to help ramp up your IT infrastructure as your organization grows and changes:
Independent, unbiased advice – A partner who makes hardware and software decisions based on your needs, not products they are trying to sell, will provide a solution unique to your situation ensuring it fits into your organizational growth and future goals. Protocol Networks’ engineers are certified in many different areas and are knowledgeable about lots of technologies, not products they are trying to sell.
Rapid implementation – When you need assistance with an infrastructure rollout for a facilities move, a short-term staff augmentation for special projects, or a remote management solution for security or facilities located in different locations, your transition partner needs to implement best practices and IT infrastructure quickly enough for your company to take advantage of opportunities or bring potential threats to a standstill.
A full arsenal of managed IT services – A full-service transition partner should have a number of essential, cost-effective services to meet your needs including:
- Network Infrastructure
- Remote Access
- Storage and Backup
- Disaster Recovery
- Support and Maintenance
