BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IQVIA™ (NYSE: IQV), a company dedicated to using analytics and science to help healthcare stakeholders find better solutions for patients, today announced at the eyeforpharma conference that it has entered into an alliance with Box, a leading cloud content management platform provider. The Box platform expands and strengthens IQVIA’s Platform of Platforms strategy by adding standardized content management, complementing our existing partnerships with Salesforce, Amazon Web Services and other leading platforms.
With the enhanced content management capabilities this alliance provides, IQVIA’s life sciences customers will be able to work with an ever expanding range of content and mobile devices, without disrupting any services they already use. The Box platform also helps clients protect against security threats and supports client efforts to manage complex compliance requirements, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
“We’re excited to welcome an innovative company such as IQVIA into the Box Technology Partner Program,” said Riju Khetarpal, managing director, Global Life Sciences at Box. “With the IQVIA collaboration, our joint customers will be able to seamlessly address the unique and complex challenges of managing content within the life sciences industry.”
Under the agreement, IQVIA will build its suite of integrated, intelligent, and easy-to-use applications to manage regulated and non-regulated content for life sciences customers on Box’s modern, cloud-based content collaboration platform. These content-driven applications help clients manage complex workflows, increase global visibility and reuse of content, and apply appropriate security, and data retention polices throughout the product lifecycle.
“Our alliance with Box shows our commitment to developing innovative technology solutions built on an integrated Platform of Platforms strategy,” said Tal Rosenberg, senior vice president, Global Technology Solutions, IQVIA. “This allows our customers to maintain the flexibility to work with best-in-class providers like Box, which is an innovative, high-growth organization that will help us deliver industry-first technologies for efficiently managing content from R&D through commercial to our customers around the world.”
IQVIA introduced its Platform of Platforms strategy in April 2017 when it announced an alliance with Salesforce.
