In the mid-90's IBM came perilously close to running out of cash before transforming from a product based business (remember the unsuccessful OS/2?) to a service based model. It's one of the biggest turn-around stories of our generation. Katherine Holland is IBM's VP for Global Life Sciences, and she thinks there's a lesson or two for pharma and other life science companies in her company's story. Join us as she tells of IBM's transformation and shares her thoughts on future imperatives for the life sciences.
