Grazie a Veeva CRM cloud e a iRep, InterMune lancia con successo le attività in Europa e un nuovo farmaco orfano

BARCELONA, Spagna, November 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Quando InterMune, società emergente operante nel campo delle biotecnologie, estese le proprie attività in Europa cercò una soluzione CRM affidabile che contribuisse al lancio di Esbriet, il farmaco orfano di sua produzione - attualmente, il primo e l'unico trattamento efficace nel rallentare la progressione della patologia nei pazienti affetti da FPI da lieve a moderata.

Poiché InterMune aveva bisogno di mettere rapidamente in campo una nuova soluzione, era alla ricerca di una piattaforma flessibile, facile sia da implementare che da utilizzare. Dopo aver preso in esame tre aziende leader nella fornitura di soluzioni CRM, InterMune decise per la soluzione CRM cloud di Veeva, completa di iRep - l'unica applicazione integrata fdi CRM e CLM (Closed Loop Marketing) appositamente progettata per l'iPad di Apple.

"Veeva CRM ha rapidamente sbaragliato i concorrenti per diversi motivi," ha spiegato Ernest Leek, Senior Director of Marketing and Sales Force Effectiveness for Europe presso InterMune. "Il fatto che Veeva CRM sfrutti a tutto campo le più recenti tecnologie cloud-based è stato il fattore determinante per la nostra decisione, poiché garantisce che il nostro sistema sarà sempre aggiornato con upgrade in tempo reale e cambiamenti che andranno di pari passo con la nostra rapida ascesa. Inoltre, Veeva CRM è costruito su una piattaforma collaudata e offre prestazioni e stabilità migliori rispetto agli altri fornitori di soluzioni CRM presi in esame."

Ad oggi, InterMune ha presentato Veeva CRM e iRep agli utenti in Germania, Francia, paesi scandinavi, Benelux e Austria. Per gestire a livello globale i materiali promozionali, l'anno scorso InterMune ha adottato anche Vault PromoMats, l'applicazione cloud-based di Veeva dedicata alla gestione dei contenuti.

"Quando decidemmo a favore di Veeva, non è stato solo per la tecnologia. L'azienda è cresciuta molto rapidamente negli ultimi cinque anni, proprio come noi; Veeva ha la nostra stessa mentalità dedicata all'attenzione per il cliente, quindi sapevamo che le due aziende erano in sintonia sul piano culturale," ha aggiunto Leek.

Secondo InterMune, lo staff delle vendite e del marketing hanno "sposato" iRep. La funzionalità integrata di CRM e CLM dell'applicazione dà al marketing un prezioso feedback circa le interazioni sul campo con il cliente, consentendo fondamentalmente allo staff delle vendite e del marketing di migliorare l'esperienza del cliente e di creare una azienda "cliente-centrica".  Veeva iRep supporta gli staff delle due divisioni aziendali dando loro tutto ciò che è necessario per essere performanti: i responsabili delle vendite hanno a disposizione strumenti per il call reporting, l'acquisizione dei dati e l'informazione dettagliata, tutti su un unico elegante dispositivo, lo staff dell'ufficio marketing può generare contenuti più ricchi e caricarli facilmente affinché possano essere distribuiti velocemente sul campo.

"Lavoro in questo settore da più di 12 anni: la tecnologia disponibile e i suoi limiti nel potenziare realmente l'interazione con il cliente mi hanno sempre lasciato insoddisfatto," ha spiegato Leek. "Veeva è una delle aziende più innovative nel settore delle scienze naturali: con la propria tecnologia CRM si è dimostrata pionieristica e foriera di cambiamenti sostanziali."

Leek ha concluso: "Vedere l'evoluzione di tutto ciò che possiamo fare con Veeva CRM è stato davvero impressionante e ci riconferma costantemente che, scegliendo Veeva, abbiamo decisamente preso la giusta decisione."

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
