Why Life Science Companies Need Best Business Intelligence Reporting Tools Designed for Their Industry

A Checklist of Essential Features of the Best Business Intelligence Reporting Tools for Life Science Companies

When evaluating platforms, life science companies must ensure it has these features that will provide the most value and ROI. Businesses should choose solutions that are:

  • Trained with life science data:
    One of the biggest differentiators when evaluating the best business intelligence reporting tools for life science companies is domain-specificity. An AI model trained with life science data can deliver relevant, accurate insights to business users from day one. Additionally, life science organizations can implement the solution more quickly in their own environments, typically 4-6 weeks rather than the months it would take to implement a horizontal solution developed with no specific life science domain expertise.
  • Enterprise-ready:
    The best analytics platforms for life science companies are enterprise-ready. They should integrate with the business systems and applications that employees use, such as Veeva, Microsoft Teams, and Salesforce. The platform should also be highly secure, allowing companies to require multi-factor authentication (MFA) to ensure that only authorized people are logging in. Global companies should also use a platform that supports multiple languages to provide the best user experiences.
  • Designed for the augmented analytics consumer:
    Analytics platforms for life science companies also need to facilitate analytics self-service. Staff throughout life science organizations need data insights, whether it’s to find sales opportunities, understand payer activities, or reduce the time it takes to set up and manage a clinical trial. However, many professionals throughout the organization aren’t data experts. Therefore, they rely heavily on the company’s data or IT team to create dashboards and generate visualizations and reports. The best platform for life sciences is designed for “augmented consumers,” which Gartner describes as people of all IT skill levels who leverage technology to access data insights. A platform based on a large language model (LLM) understands users when they ask questions conversationally and provides contextual answers. An augmented consumer platform gives users autonomy and frees the data or IT team to focus on other responsibilities.

The Benefits of Using Business Intelligence Platforms Designed for Life Sciences


Life science teams often wait weeks or months for the data analytics insights they need. An augmented consumer platform leveraging a large language model and deep learning enables users to reduce that time to seconds. Furthermore, if users need deeper insights, they can simply ask them instead of requesting an additional dashboard.
