Evolve and exceed: How open source is disrupting pharmaceutical serialization

Watch recording from July 30, 2019

As the pharmaceutical supply chain increases in complexity, so do the risks that compromise the distribution network’s integrity. As a result, the well-being of those who rely on these medicines is put in jeopardy. Around the globe, governments and their agencies are responding by implementing and enforcing pharmaceutical product serialization and track-and-trace regulations, each with its own set of requirements and enforcement timelines. Pharmaceutical companies must re-evaluate their IT infrastructures to respond appropriately.

Together, Red Hat and QU4RTET offer an open source, cloud-ready enterprise solution for pharmaceutical serialization. Organizations can meet their compliance needs, seamlessly integrate with trading partners, and offer serialization support to their customers with confidence, all while lowering costs and improving efficiency and security.

Many companies have committed to solutions with costly license fees, unplanned validation requirements, and proprietary interfaces. In this webinar, we’ll review the Red Hat and QU4RTET open source simplified migration approach.

We’ll cover:

  • Current solution challenges.
  • Benefits of open source.
  • Common implementation solution questions.
  • A solution overview.
