Life Sciences Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) or Thought Leaders are used for a variety of contracted services ranging from clinical trial investigators, national, regional and local speakers, and as consulting advisors for R&D and commercial needs.
Most life sciences companies have a pool of KOLs that they use for contracted services, but typically do not have consistent or reliable processes to evaluate the KOLs to determine if they are the best possible candidates. By deriving multi-faceted views of KOLs encompassing their expertise, communities of practice, influence, social networks, and history of interactions, companies can use a data-driven approach to optimize selection, and ongoing management.

Reltio’s data-driven KOL Management application brings together data from multiple internal, third-party, public and social sources to identify key influencers and to uncover relationships, not just between people and organizations, but products, locations, publications, activities and transactions. Information is continuously cleansed, correlated to form a reliable data foundation for all the variables needed to rank KOLs.
IDENTIFY AND TARGET THE RIGHT CANDIDATES
Use any combination of algorithms and data, including social network analysis (SNA), key online influence (KOI), Pubmed information, affiliations and more. Easily configure weightings, or use Reltio’s relevant insights and visualization of demographics and firmographic distribution to easily segment and build the right lists to improve your chances of finding the right KOLs for the right programs.
COLLABORATE ACROSS TEAMS, IN REAL-TIME
KOL Management is not just the responsibility of the marketing or brand teams. It’s an enterprise-wide focus. Finding the right KOLs requires access to a convergence of information, with the proper level of role-based access and visibility. Reltio provides built-in annotating, tagging, and voting on data, so every member who has knowledge of KOLs can contribute, and continuously improve tribal knowledge about candidates.

10 Steps to GDPR Compliance
Effective May 25, 2018, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will represent the most rigorous data protection regulation ever. Complying is not optional, and the penalties are very high. As companies scurry for total compliance, it makes sense to pause, assess, and use this opportunity not only for compliance but for managing customer data efficiently and gainfully.
MACHINE LEARNING PUTS DATA FRONT AND CENTER FOR BUSINESS
Machine learning is surrounded by fascination and awe. It can drive better personalized experiences with customers, increase workforce effectiveness, and de-risk your organization from security threats and regulations. But, machine learning needs quality data, relevant data, and better context surrounding transactions, interactions, operations and decisions.

Walmart, for example, is rapidly investing in digital capabilities and online brands (it acquired Jet.com, for example).
