AI and Data Sciences Showcase:
McKinsey and Company

McKinsey and Company is a global management consulting firm.

Data Transformation
There is a lot of interest these days at the senior-most leadership of many Pharmaceutical companies in using machine learning and other advanced analytics methods to achieve strategic differentiation. A recent McKinsey analysis found, however that in order for a company to achieve this level, they would need to conduct ~1,000 advanced analytics use-cases per year. This is not tenable today because most Pharmaceutical companies’ take between 4-6 months to perform a typical (non-clinical trial) analytics use-case, instead of the 4-6 week cycle time that they would need in order to achieve advanced analytics at scale.
