Digital Transformation is Relevant to Pharmaceuticals Too

Eugene Sefanov has a post out on our Life Sciences blog.  He includes a video from a TV commercial but I want to focus on the web site for the drug JUBLIA. Just as their TV commercial was spot on, their product website was just as superb. It ties into the video very well by […]
