About the Webinar

Watch this 51-minute long webinar about the practice of enterprise architecture in the pharmaceutical industry with Marina Barnes, Principal Enterprise Architect in a prestigious biotech company located in the greater Seattle region. The pharmaceutical, biotech, life science, and medical device industries operate within a highly complex and regulated environment, where the development, production, and distribution of life-saving drugs and therapies require meticulous planning, coordination, and optimization. In this context, Enterprise Architecture (EA) plays a pivotal role in ensuring the seamless integration of business planning, business capabilities mapping, information technology, and business processes.


The pharmaceutical sector faces unique challenges, such as stringent regulatory requirements, rapid advances in research and development, and a growing demand for personalized medicine. EA serves as a critical tool for pharmaceutical companies to address these challenges by harmonizing IT infrastructure, fostering data-driven decision-making, and enhancing collaboration across research, manufacturing, and commercialization functions. As the industry evolves, EA in the pharmaceutical sector continues to evolve, enabling organizations to adapt to market shifts, embrace digital transformation, and ultimately deliver innovative therapies that improve patient outcomes and contribute to the advancement of global healthcare.
