Leveraging intellectual property and information technology assets is a competitive hallmark that distinguishes the successful enterprise. Business success hinges on the acquisition of quality systems that generate data — and advanced analyses of that data — for instant dissemination and application in the field.
At the same time, information technology’s role as the lifeblood of business raises increasingly complex legal issues. These center around:
- Development, acquisition and implementation
- Privacy and confidentiality
- Electronic contracting, e-commerce and Internet concerns
- Security and disaster recovery
- Strategic partnerships, acquisitions and investments
- Increasing convergence with biotechnology
