Pharmaceuticals - a knowledge driven industry:

Pharmaceuticals happen to be one of the most extremely 'Knowledge Driven' industries that is always in a state of change. Human, animal, and environmental health remains the topmost interest of the society. Diversities in life form and infections render grave challenges to the formulation of particular and targeted solutions. Drug discovery is an elaborate process needing almost a decade at a cost of 300 million U.S. dollars to get a new drug to the market. Hence the long waiting period in between 'learning', knowledge generation' and its changeover to 'value added knowledge' requires the building of Proprietary Knowledge' that is of immense value in setting up and maintaining a worldwide creative gesture. One of our major competitors Merck and Co holds expertise in medicinal preparations & chemistry of N-Heterocyclics liquid crystalline materials having saturated or unsaturated non-aromatic rings. Novartis, our next competitor is a global leader in chemistry of N-based hetrocyclics, carbohydrates, proteins, peptides, and other diverse condensed ring systems. Besides, they have leadership position in fermentation as also enzyme-based processes for preparation of organic compounds, tissue culture and a minor business in recombinant DNA technology (Global Pharmaceutical Industry: Intellectual Wealth and Asset Protection)

Product Life Cycle Management -- a sunrise business process for pharmaceutical industry:

The global pharma industry is seeing speedy progression in processes and technology and computerization is coming to hold a vital constituent part in majority of the manufacturing processes. Due to rigid regulatory standards and rising costs, pharma companies prefer to hand over their manufacturing processes to Contract Manufacturing Organization -- CMOs as a part of outsourcing so as to enhance productivity. (Global Pharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing Markets) a new domain that is arrived on the shores of pharmaceutical, and I am sure that Wyeth will immensely benefit from this which is Product Life Cycle Management -- PLM which aligns with the pharma industry's business processes. PLM deals with the challenges of managing a group of hundreds of drug candidates, from a collection of different R&D facilities and manufacturing plants across the world. Augmenting to the business drivers for investing in PLM is the mounting pressure by the regulatory agencies that stresses on adherence to ensure drug safety.
