“CDM: Digital Version 3.0” – Utilizing Advanced Technology to Break through the Constraints of Time, Cost and Quality

SCDM is pleased to announce the 1st Single Day Event on “CDM: Digital Version 3.0 – Utilizing Advanced Technology to break through the Constraints of Time, Cost and Quality” taking place in Bengaluru, India on July 29th 2017.

The technology around Clinical Data Management has evolved in leaps and bounds over the past decade or so.  A significant contributor to this development in technology has been in response to demand from the business – the need for driving costs down, making the process more efficient and reliable, providing the much needed intelligence to mitigate risk, learn from mistakes and get better over time.

The situation today though seems to indicate that not only is technology continuing to respond to the business need, but the sheer pace of evolution is also offering new insights in to how Data Management should conduct itself in the future.  This Single Day Event (SDE) offers the opportunity for industry professionals to get together and discuss this topic in a little more detail.

This year, SCDM is will be organizing Single Day Events in multiple cities instead of an annual conference.  This is an effort to bring SCDM networking and learning events closer to where our members are to enable larger participation at lower costs.

Our key note speakers are well known and respected leaders who will share their insight and experience.  This SDE has been designed as a deeper learning event with two interactive workshops lead by very knowledgeable and experienced colleagues from the industry.
