The blog will be continued in the same spirit and I’ll be providing my own unique perspectives as well as highlighting the value and importance of how the Emerson Team solves business problems at the automation and operations layers of the S95 context model. I’ll also try to share some of the interesting global trends that we run across in our research as the face of health care and the Life Sciences industry is reshaped before us.
Enjoy and we look forward to your feedback

Of course, there has been quite a bit of shifting over the last year and decade in the life sciences industry. In a sense, the movement has been at tectonic plate proportions.
Arguably, many global manufacturers are looking over their shoulder at the Asia Pacific region with the increasing amount of investment coming from that part of the world. Much of what is happening in the Pacific rim has and will continue to shape how we will soldier on to outpace the competition in our served market.
Our team is very optimistic about 2011. We have learned a great deal from the past, we appreciate the many opportunities that stand before us, and most importantly, remain prepared to realize the goals we have set forth for the coming year. Many thanks to all of the readers of this blog and the Emerson Global Life Sciences Team would like to wish a Happy New Year to you all!
