Competition in key medtech industry markets gets fiercer every year, not to mention all the regulations that businesses must cope with that affect approximately 90% of the Swiss medtech industry. Data science or data products can be a smart move to optimise costs and diversify into areas with more opportunities and less competition.
This can’t be done without the right people who possess the right skills. The following illustrated guide is an overview of what types of data people ERNI employs and relies on. We don’t look for the ‘one to solve it all’ kind of scientist in a white coat. We think in a broader context of building a capable team composed of employees with various types of roles and skills that are of strategic importance for our customer’s path towards embracing data science.
Generally speaking, Swiss companies are well positioned on the market with their premium technology, but technology today is gaining traction – especially in the context of data. That not only brings more features and advantages to end users but also boosts the medtech industry as a whole. Its total value is now estimated at more than €100 billion in Europe. The potential for further growth with the right use of data can significantly increase this figure. However, companies that are unprepared when it comes to HR could easily end up as bystanders in this game.
