Why You Should AttendAgendaSpeakerPricingVenue
The use of data has been part of the FDA’s guidance and regulations for many years. Recent uses include Quality by Design, Process Analytical Technology, Process Validation, Data Integrity and Quality Metrics. Advances in information technology have greatly increased the opportunity to use data to develop and improve processes including the benefits of “Big Data”.

The renewed interest in data integrity raises questions regarding what is data integrity and how to assess it. Much discussion of quality metrics has ensued regarding how to respond to the FDA’s guidance and its elements. It is also critical to visualize and analyze data to solve problems and improve processes. Three critical aspects of data analysis are the context for the problem and business objectives, the visualization of the data and the analytical modeling of the data. The critical question is how to go about this in a systematic and effective manner.

In this workshop each of these data issues and questions are addressed. Emphasis is on providing practical solutions that can be implemented promptly. It is pointed out that these initiatives are inter-related and should not be treated separately. It is shown how a data-centered culture can be built to implement and sustain these initiatives over time.
