InterMune lance avec succès ses opérations européennes et son nouveau médicament orphelin avec Veeva CRM et iRep basés sur le cloud

BARCELONE, Espagne, November 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Lorsque la société de biotechnologie émergente InterMune a étendu ses activités en Europe, elle a cherché une solution de gestion de la relation client (CRM) fiable qui permettrait de lancer son médicament orphelin, Esbriet - le premier et unique traitement pouvant ralentir de façon prouvée la progression de la maladie chez les patients légèrement ou modérément atteints de fibrose pulmonaire idiopathique (FPI).

InterMune devait également déployer rapidement une nouvelle solution, de sorte que la société de biotechnologie recherchait une plateforme flexible, facile à mettre en œuvre et simple d'utilisation. Après avoir évalué trois fournisseurs de CRM, InterMune a sélectionné Veeva CRM sur le cloud, intégrant iRep - la seule application intégrée de CRM et de CLM (Closed Loop Marketing - Marketing en boucle fermée) dans  l'industrie à être conçue pour l'iPad d'Apple.

« Veeva CRM est rapidement sorti du lot pour plusieurs raisons », a expliqué Ernest Leek, Directeur senior du marketing et de l'efficacité commerciale pour l'Europe chez InterMune. « Le fait que Veeva CRM tire pleinement parti des dernières technologies sur le cloud, a été un facteur de décision clé pour nous. Cette solution garantit que notre système reste toujours actualisé avec des mises à jour en temps réel et des modifications permettant de s'adapter au rythme de notre croissance rapide. En outre, Veeva CRM repose sur une plateforme qui a fait ses preuves, et offre plus de puissance et de stabilité par rapport aux autres fournisseurs de CRM que nous avons évalués. »

À ce jour, InterMune a déployé Veeva CRM et iRep pour ses utilisateurs en Allemagne, en France, en Scandinavie, au Benelux et en Autriche. L'année dernière,InterMune a également adopté Vault PromoMats, l'application de gestion de contenu sur le cloud de Veeva, pour la gestion internationale du contenu promotionnel.

« Lorsque nous avons décidé d'opter pour Veeva, il ne s'agissait pas d'un choix purement technologique. L'entreprise a connu comme nous une croissance très rapide au cours des cinq dernières années, et Veeva présente ce même état d'esprit qui donne la priorité au client. Ainsi nous savions que les deux cultures de nos organisations étaient en adéquation », a ajouté M. Leek.

Selon InterMune, leurs équipes de vente et de marketing ont adopté iRep. Les fonctionnalités de CRM et de CLM, intégrées à l'application, fournissent au service marketing de précieuses informations sur les interactions avec les clients sur le terrain. Elles permettent en fin de compte aux équipes marketing et commerciales d'améliorer l'expérience client et d'élaborer une organisation plus centrée sur le client. Veeva iRep répond aux besoins de ses deux équipes - les représentants commerciaux disposent de reportings sur leurs visites, d'une vision sur les données  et d'outils de vente, le tout sur un seul appareil élégant, tandis que le service marketing peut produire un contenu plus riche et le transférer facilement pour une diffusion rapide sur le terrain.

« Je fais partie de cette industrie depuis plus de 12 ans et j'ai toujours été frustré par la technologie existante et par ses limites quant à l'amélioration effective de l'interaction avec le client », a expliqué M. Leek. « Veeva est l'une des entreprises les plus innovantes dans le secteur des sciences de la vie et elle a repoussé les limites afin de mener un véritable changement grâce à sa technologie de CRM. »

M. Leek a conclu : « Il a été impressionnant de constater l'évolution de tout ce que nous pouvons faire avec Veeva CRM et cela nous rappelle constamment que nous avons certainement pris la bonne décision en choisissant Veeva. »

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
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. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
