“The life sciences industry is operating in a very dynamic landscape today with heightened regulatory scrutiny, patent cliffs, and growing incidence of mergers and acquisitions. Technology can play an important role to help life sciences companies embrace these changes and stay competitive. For example, Infosys recently launched a cloud-based solution to help enterprises in this industry reduce costs of regulatory compliance and clinical trial management while accelerating business processes.”
Jimit Arora, Vice President at Everest Group
“The new surge in life sciences in ITO is driven by application portfolio modernization, infrastructure transformation, and analytics. Life sciences enterprises are increasingly looking at service providers that can provide a blend of traditional and next-generation services. In the past year, Infosys has made investments to create a balanced portfolio of offerings across traditional and next-generation services. This has resulted in significant market success in large life sciences ITO contracts for the company and contributed to the rating of Leader and Star Performer in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix™.”
