Redefining the way Life Sciences innovate

Our health and life sciences practice helps pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device clients redefine innovation to develop future focused business strategies. Companies are seeking ways to improve research and development, increase the efficiency of their operations, rationalize spending on sales and marketing and empower people to work at their highest levels of performance.

We help organizations realize their goals with the power of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare to:

  • Accelerate new customer acquisition and retention by leveraging data, artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics and digital marketing.
  • Discover and develop new drugs and devices and bring them to market faster with data, AI, machine learning, and massive cloud compute power.
  • Enable agile and secure supply chains that can adapt quickly or altered when needed using predictive analytics, internet of things (IoT) and blockchain.
  • Empower field reps, and technicians to work at the top of their field with immersive technologies like Microsoft HoloLens and augmented reality that help customers maximize the use of their products and services.

“For the first time, we have one platform which serves all our internal and external needs. We call it the digital health cloud platform. And it offers all the Office 365 tools along with Azure services, because we don’t just want to collaborate with our employees worldwide; we also want to collaborate with our customers and our partners – with patients and their relatives. It’s a core part of our future strategy.”

Gerd Niehage Chief Information Officer, B. Braun Group
