My name is Anna and I started working as a Data Analytics Engineer at Roche Diagnostics in Rotkreuz in June 2020.
Our team’s main goal is to push forward the digitalization process at Roche to create value from data. We work closely together with other teams to assess their business needs and create new opportunities. The applications we are working on are immediately used by the colleagues responsible for the consumable’s distribution. I highly value the interdisciplinary exchange across departments as it allows us to think of innovative but at the same time practical ideas that impact people right away.

The project I am working on has been very rewarding as it directly supports the efforts of increasing the number of performed COVID-19 antibody and virus tests. The fully automated testing systems developed and produced by Roche are able to perform daily up to 2000 or 4000 tests respectively. Because of this year’s events the demand for these systems and the disposable components like tubes needed to perform the tests has increased. We had to put a lot of effort into making sure that we could meet this demand.
Digitalization has been a crucial part in supporting and monitoring the Supply Chain in its adaption process. By consolidating existing data to and from the suppliers, a data pipeline was created. We built visualization charts from real time information that allow the data to be monitored and insights about potential bottlenecks to be gained. Through this digitalization process we are able to save time and resources and ensure the swift distribution of high-demand products to the patients.
With current events, being able to adapt to new situations has become crucial. This has certainly not come without its challenges, but I feel like as a team we have been able to find a rhythm that works well.
在Roche，我已经能够从Get Go开始贡献，甚至低于理想（留在家里）的情况 - 不是一个通常的设置在新团队中开始。尽管如此，通过支持我的同事，我能够迅速进入该项目并提前贡献自己的想法。我相信这种支持和赋权环境是最终导致成功和强大的团队。在这里鼓励开放的思想交流，创造一个既激励和实现的工作环境。
