Leading Life Science and Healthcare organizations, including Sanofi-Aventis, Duke Clinical Research and Telerx Marketing reported first-hand accounts of their experience with Microsoft SharePoint® -based solutions in a White Paper released today by the analyst and strategic advisory firm Axendia, Inc.  (Read the Press Release at: http://www.prweb.com//releases/2011/6/prweb8582485.htm )

To produce this White Paper, Axendia conducted one-on-one interviews with Life Science and Healthcare stakeholders currently using Microsoft SharePoint-based solutions within their organizations.

“As we conducted one-on-one interviews with key Life Science and Healthcare stakeholders, distinct themes emerged,” commented Daniel R. Matlis, President of Axendia. “IT Professionals touted its ease of deployment and integration with enterprise systems, Process Owners praised the ease of configuration and intuitive interface, while Compliance Professionals liked the ability to manage validation activities by utilizing a platform approach,” he added.

According to research participants, SharePoint provides a strong foundation that enables Life Science and Healthcare organizations to configure functionality and add Off the Shelf modules from a network of independent software vendors. This approach enables them to meet the requirements of a wide variety of users across the ecosystem. Research participants report that SharePoint-based solutions have been adopted across the Life Sciences and Healthcare ecosystem. These solutions support several functional areas including research & development, quality management, manufacturing & operations, clinical data management and customer service.

Findings from this research are available today in a new Axendia White Paper titled: “The State of SharePoint In Life Sciences and Healthcare.”
