Business Strategy: Top Software Vendors in the Life Science Industry, 2015

Business Strategy: Top Software Vendors in the Life Science Industry, 2015This IDC Health Insights report summarizes the results from a recent study to identify the top 10 software vendors serving the life science market. Conducted annually since 2010, the 2015 IDC Health Insights top 10 life science software vendors list includes expanded insights into life science vendor rankings within the life science industry subsegments — research, development, manufacturing and supply chain, and sales and marketing.Alan S. Louie, research director at IDC Health Insights, commented, "The life science R&D application ecosystem is continuing to grow and evolve, with a number of top-tier, best-of-breed solution providers leading the way. While continuing to improve their increasingly capable and interconnected solution offerings, leading vendors are also adding and expanding solution-as-a-service delivery options, thereby increasing access and availability to many in the industry ecosystem. While advances in genomics and expansion into the adjacent healthcare space promise to drive continued software vendor growth, IDC expects that life science companies will prefer to push their vendor partners to deliver these new capabilities either through organic growth or via acquisitions over the longer term."Mike Townsend, research manager at IDC Health Insights, said, "The need for collaboration and connectedness are driving software innovators in life science commercial operations to develop transformative applications, which improve effectiveness and efficiency for sales and marketing professionals, manufacturing operations, and channel partners. Technology that connects patients, providers, payers, and life science industry partners intelligently in an accessible, scalable model will remain in high demand."
