NEW YORK, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

On average, it takes about 10-12 years and $1 billion to bring a new drug to market. With a patent life of only 20 years, this does not leave a long market exclusivity period in which to recoup the development costs. Therefore, executives are beginning to look at various technology solutions to lower costs and reduce time-to-market.
Companies are shifting away from the 'one-size-fits-all' blockbuster drug business model. As pressures grow to fill their dwindling product pipeline with innovative drugs, companies are embracing biotechnology and personalized medicine. This has led to a greater demand for the IT sector to provide the industry with the tools it requires to succeed.
In the past, pharma companies have built their own solutions as they required customized solutions, resulting in an industry plagued with home-grown legacy systems that are difficult to maintain and integrate. IT executives are now beginning to understand the benefits of commercial solutions, but still need time, education and convincing.
