Over the last few years, we’ve had the opportunity to see some of the largest life science companies in the world use the Mendix App Platform to streamline business processes, aggregate data from disparate systems in an easy to use app, and improve their competitive positioning with innovative web and mobile applications. In that time, we’ve met some very smart people. One such individual is Jim Winburn – a true veteran life science executive and an information technology innovator. John Bates, Chief Technology Officer at Progress Software, puts it best “Jim is a technology visionary, an experienced technology practitioner and architect and a wonderful person.”
We’ve invited Jim to give his perspective on enabling IT innovation for life science companies during a live webinar that will take place on April 3rd at 11:00am EDT. You can sign up for the webinar here.
Jim is a veteran executive and innovator in the life science industry, Jim’s career spans 30 years in information technology – 13 within life science organizations – both as strategic consultant and IT executive, most recently as Executive Director of IT at PPD, Vice President – Clinical Architecture at PRA International, and CTO and Co-Founder of Acorn Applications LLC.
During the webinar, we’ll provide a brief introduction how application platform as a service (aPaaS / PaaS) can be a game changer for IT innovation and then hear Jim’s thoughts on overcoming the unique challenges that life science companies face when building and extending their application landscape. From understanding the trends and technologies, to building the strategy and vision, through measurement of success in deploying applications that drive business results – who better to learn from than someone who’s seen it all.
