After an overwhelming response to the Axtria’s presence last year, we are pleased to announce Axtria’s Gold Sponsor support for this year’s Pharmaceutical Management Science Association (PMSA) Annual Conference. Axtria’s Principals have supported the PMSA for two decades, including over 15 presentations / symposia / poster contributions over the past decade alone. The annual PMSA conference is attended by industry thought leaders, and highlights the latest thinking in life sciences analytics and business challenges facing commercial operations.
The event is April 19-22, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. Registration is now open at the PMSA website.
This year's conference will focus on Emerging Big Data Analytics in Pharma. In the words of Jassi Chadha, Co-founder and CEO of Axtria, “The volume of data on Earth doubles every ~ 18 months, but the number of analysts does not. Axtria wades into this growing chasm to help our clients bring ‘insightful’ order to chaos. Our platforms manage Big Data and leverage analytics to generate “ingenious insights” that help clients make better decisions.”
During the conference, Axtria will showcase its cutting-edge “Integrated Services Platform” with pre-configured and rapid deployment of industry best practices that deliver “Insight at the point of decision.”
In addition, Axtria will lead several thought leadership sessions including:
Effective Incentive Plan Design and Analytics: Specialty Brands, Impact from Reduced Access and Multi-channel Marketing, Perspectives from Other Industries Incentive Compensation today continues to be a critical function in sales operations, and is one of the key levers for driving field force effectiveness.
