On August 4, global industry leaders will learn the driving factors, challenges, and long-term opportunities for building a vertical SaaS company in a horizontal SaaS world.
Washington, DC, and Cambridge, MA – August 3, 2022 - Sorcero, the leading omnichannel AI analytics platform for life sciences, today announced that CEO and Co-founder Dipanwita Das will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 World Festival leading the session, “Building a Vertical SaaS Company in a Horizontal SaaS World.”
Dipanwita Das has been working at the intersection of analytics, start-up, and health data for over twelve years. As CEO and Co-founder of Sorcero, Das leads with a mission to improve patient outcomes through effective use of the world’s medical and scientific knowledge. She has developed Sorcero's vision of applying advanced analytics to medical and scientific language to improve patient outcomes and helped author the company's 5 patented advances in biomedical AI.
In this session, Das will share the driving factors, challenges, and long-term opportunities for building a vertical SaaS company in a horizontal SaaS world. Generic, horizontal SaaS solutions fall flat on their face when trying to tackle problems inherent to complex and highly-regulated industries, including Life Sciences. To solve real-world customer problems, SaaS providers need customizations, compliance, and deep domain understanding. Enter: Vertical SaaS.
Drawing from her real-world experience leading Sorcero, a fast-growing vertical SaaS company, Das will explore the challenges and opportunities involved in owning a single market, such as Medical Affairs, rather than small shares across several markets. She will demonstrate how domain-specific AI can deliver process industry-specific data to uncover powerful insights. Session attendees will gain a critical understanding of the momentous value of Enterprise AI and Vertical SaaS for domain-specific workflows and data processing to augment mission-critical decisions.
Who: Dipanwita Das, CEO and Co-founder of Sorcero
When: Thursday, August 4 | 3:30 PM - 3:55 PM (EDT)
