Data Fabric Solution Vendor Evaluation for a Multinational Pharmaceutical Company

Enterprise Knowledge 06 Mar 2024
The Challenge A major multinational pharmaceutical company faced challenges with having information stored across collections of structured and unstructured documents that are difficult to index and search. To address this, the company sought a data fabric solution that extracts relevant information from unstructured documents and builds a knowledge graph that can support discovery and collaboration, on-demand access, and standardization and interoperability. The organization engaged with multiple different vendors to conduct competing proof of concepts (POCs) to evaluate marketplace knowledge and graph capabilities for a defined use case. To support this process, the client sought an external advisor to assess the proposed solutions and capabilities offered by each vendor and offer industry expertise to gauge which data fabric approach would fit their company-specific needs and serve best long term. The Solution EK first conducted discovery sessions with stakeholders to capture a clear understanding of the use case and current information ecosystem to have sufficient background to properly assess the vendor solutions in alignment with the client’s target state.
