TraceLink has given me the opportunity to be close to some very exciting technology and play a hands-on role in building a high-quality product, high velocity team, and agile development methodology that together ensure mission-critical compliance and customer success."
Chief Technology Officer Bob Sturim leads product design, implementation, and testing of the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud, ensuring the seamless processing and tracking of high-volume, highly distributed events, and an agile response to the rapidly changing regulatory environment.
