Strengthening Supply Chains with Graph Technology

Pharmaceutical, biotechnology, nutritional, and medical device industries have seen massive disruption. In many cases, supply chains have not been flexible enough to adapt to product shortages and increased demand for new substances and devices in the pandemic. Manufacturing and packaging operations that have been fine-tuned for efficiency over many years face requirements to pivot to new products almost overnight. Too often, understanding and changing complex data interdependencies in traditional structured query language (SQL) databases can delay the pace of change.

Huge variations in supply and demand have stressed supply chains to breaking point. Pharma companies have had to switch their product lines overnight to meet demand for completely new medicinal products and devices to treat patients with coronavirus. Pharma manufacturing and packaging companies have had to act quickly to respond to these changes. While the global effort to pivot product manufacture and supply chains has been unprecedented, it has shone a spotlight on the need for greater efficiencies in many processes. It is clear that manufacturers, distributors, and packaging companies need a more agile way of dealing with the vast amount of intertwined data and regulations involved with delivering items around the world. Life science organisations need a highly scalable way to manage the huge volumes of serial numbers, supplier and facility details, certifications, documents, and detailed questionnaires they will need to get on top of the crisis.
