Medidata: A perfect infrastructure supply and account management partnership

Medidata: A perfect infrastructure supply and account management partnership

The Customer

Medidata Solutions, established in 1999, is a pioneering technology company specialising in Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for clinical trials. With a diverse client base spanning pharmaceutical, biotech, medical devices and more, Medidata empowers organisations worldwide to optimise their clinical research processes.

With a workforce of 2,800 employees, Medidata was acquired by Dassault Systèmes, amplifying its capabilities within a global software ecosystem.

The Challenge

Medidata operates within an environment where the reliability and efficiency of IT hardware are paramount. The nature of their work in the healthcare and research sectors demands systems that can handle vast amounts of data securely and efficiently, without compromising on performance or reliability.

Recognising the critical importance of robust and reliable IT support, with operations, spanning across various aspects of clinical research and data analytics, Medidata required a partner capable of addressing all their IT hardware needs under one roof.

The term “proactive one-stop shop” underscored Medidata’s desire for simplicity and efficiency in managing their IT infrastructure. Rather than engaging multiple vendors for different hardware components or services, they sought a single provider who could offer a holistic solution encompassing procurement, deployment, maintenance, and support. Reactive support for resolving issues was crucial, but equally important was proactive support to anticipate and prevent potential disruptions before they impacted operations.
