SHL at PDA Vegas 2012 - Inspiring Integration: Development, Capabilities, Final Assembly

TAOYUAN, Taiwan, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the biopharmaceutical industry's drug delivery landscape in recent years quickly evolving to adapt to the introduction of new biologics drugs, a range of devices such as pen and auto injectors have also been introduced to improve the administration, safety and accuracy of the drug for end-users. As biopharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers come together to work on innovating such solutions, it is becoming more apparent that for a project to succeed it is crucial to find a partner that can provide streamlined key services. To promote the importance of integrating such services in the area of Development, Capabilities and Final Assembly, SHL will be focusing on the theme of Inspiring Integration during its presence at the 2012 PDA (The Universe of Pre-filled Syringes & Injection Devices) in Las Vegas USA at the Red Rock Resort from October 15-16th.

As the PDA's theme this year happens to be "Integrating the Unmet Market Needs: Bringing it All Together for Tomorrow's Success", SHL believes that the Inspiring Integration topic speaks also to the same needs but at a device development and manufacturing level. As biopharmaceutical companies have gained extensive device knowledge over the years, SHL hopes to now share with customers about the importance of working with a partner that can provide a range of key services and capabilities to streamline all stages and ultimately speed up time-to-market while ensuring quality and protecting IP.

Commenting on this year's attendance and theme, Marketing Director, Steven Kaufman says, "It is once again an honor for us to attend such a prestigious event. Over the years the PDA has attracted various industry experts to speak, attend and exhibit at this event, this allows device companies like ourselves to interact with key individuals to better understand the true needs of biopharmaceutical companies and learn what we can do to integrate a range of key expertise and services. Although we have many devices in our pipeline, this year we decided to focus on the importance of integrating design & development, in-house capabilities and final assembly and streamlining them for customers so we can maximize efficiency and quality. That said, we of course welcome customers to ask about our latest devices"

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
