Build a centralized, enterprisewide system for managing the development of their drug pipeline — the Information Management System (IMS).

Eliminate the 30-plus systems inherited from early, "entrepreneurial" days.

Change the corporate culture:

  • Abandon silos, and adopt integrated information approach
  • Implement information standards
  • Implement a common nomenclature
  • Integrate the interactive voice response system for clinical trial patient randomization and the financial accounting system (uses Costpoint software) into IMS
  • Develop online budgeting and forecasting using OLAP (online analytical processing), and integrate it with accounting and human resources systems
  • Build document management and electronic publishing system for drug applications
