Discovery in the pharmaceutical industry involves successful collaboration and socialization focused on appropriate data that is distributed across the enterprise. Not long after Pfizer implemented Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 for its document organization and collaboration needs, the company saw a need to integrate that system with its Pipeline Pilot data automation system. Pfizer contracted with Accelrys, the maker of Pipeline Pilot, to develop an integration solution. Now, all 110,000 Pfizer employees can access Pipeline Pilot through their SharePoint sites, helping users increase productivity, enhance collaboration, and potentially speed time-to-market.
