Insider's spotlight

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Being in the Clinical Trials space, there is a lot of rigor and compliance that our work goes through. This goes the same for any changes in code, but at the same time we run like an agile sprint development process. One of the biggest challenges is how to build and integrate the tooling and our processes so we can be agile yet still compliant.
