September 28th and 29th saw Nymi’s attendance at the Pharma MES & Process Minds conference in Berlin. The show is a leading knowledge exchange platform for pharma manufacturing around the globe, bringing together key stakeholders who play an active role within pharma and life science manufacturing.
It was exciting to both attend and be an exhibitor at the show, and to be able to meet such a wide variety of industry leaders from not only the manufacturing side, but also the systems and infrastructure side. There were several keynote presentations and workshops throughout the show, and one thing that became clear is that as the pharmaceutical industry moves to “Industry 4.0”, managing and distilling actionable information from huge streams of data is something that all companies are facing. In a digitized process world, data integrity becomes especially crucial. This isn’t just to ensure smooth operations at the plant level, but is critical from a compliance point of view.
This latest inflection point is where Nymi’s authentication solution can add tremendous value. By having employees in a continuously authenticated state, companies will know who did what and when, with a degree of confidence that was never possible in the past. Nymi’s solution offers companies a step change when it comes to authentication and data integrity, by creating a system with strong user nonrepudiation. However, the benefits extend far beyond data integrity, ranging from increased efficiency, to minimizing employee friction while authenticating (see prior blog post for further information), right through to increased visibility and control for IT teams.
Coming out of the conference, there is much more that we are excited to share, and will be using this space as a way to disseminate information not only about where we’ll be next, but around the complete Nymi Solution as well.
