PLANO, TX – September 27, 2018 – NTT DATA, a recognized leader in global technology services, was named a Leader in two recently published IDC MarketScape reports within the life science R&D space, focused on IT Outsourcing (ITO) and strategic consulting services.

The IDC MarketScape: World Life Science R&D ITO Services 2018 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US44023818, June 2018) builds on contributions from 11 major life science R&D IT outsourcing (ITO) service providers to examine the life science R&D IT outsourcing vendor landscape today with a view toward expected growth over the next three to five years. The report evaluates service providers based on operational, business, and market-centric criteria that should be important to life science companies when considering the selection of an external service provider to take over noncore IT activities.

The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Life Science R&D Strategic Consulting Services 2018 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US44159218, August 2018) highlights the growth in the demand for strategic consulting services in the life science industry and evaluates 16 major life science R&D strategic consulting service providers, based on criteria that should be important to life science companies when considering the selection of a strategic consulting partner to help provide guidance for strategic, operational, and tactical transformation issues within the R&D space. The report is available for purchase here.

“NTT DATA has extensive experience working with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies of all sizes and across multiple geographies,” noted Alan Louie, research director of IDC Health Insights' Life Science R&D Technology and Strategy Research. “NTT DATA's portfolio of clients is broader than traditional ITO service providers, with a significant percentage of emerging and midsize clients and measurable presence in markets outside of Europe and North America. The company's targeted focus on process automation and platform partnerships also differentiates it from its peers.”

Relative to other vendors discussed in the studies and based on feedback from customer references, in both reports NTT DATA received recognition for its strong project leadership, high satisfaction for work quality, willingness to contribute insights from best practices across its sponsor ecosystem, and willingness to go above and beyond as needed.

“Life sciences companies have to tackle the dual challenges of delivering measurable outcomes in this highly complex market as well as increasing speed to market while decreasing cost of R&D. Our ability to integrate and analyze real world data, combined with our expertise in digital health technologies and our truly global delivery model, puts us in a unique position to help them succeed in these areas,” said Michael Thomas, global head, Life Sciences, NTT DATA Services. “We are proud to be named a Leader in the two IDC MarketScape reports. Our position reiterates our solid commitment to our clients to help them deliver on their customer promise.”
