We helped a generic drug sourcing company streamline their data management using Platform-as-a-Service in the cloud.
In an age where business operations require an immense amount of data, it can be challenging and cumbersome to scale enterprise applications and analytics. It is even more difficult to house, store and showcase this data in a way that promotes ease of use and drives insights that impact business success.
Our client is one of the largest generic drug providers, supporting one-third of all generic drug sales in the world. As generics contribute to nearly 90 percent of drug sales, companies like our client help lower the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, saving the US health system more than a trillion dollars every year.
As a source of 8,000 different generic drugs and a partner to more than 140 suppliers, the client must manage an enormous amount of data streaming into their systems daily. They require a robust and dependable data management system to keep up with demands and sustain long-term growth. The client had previously engaged Centric Consulting’s Modern Software Delivery and Data and Analytics experts to establish an Azure virtual machine-based solution (similar to on-premise), which successfully ran their company for several years.
After experiencing rapid growth, they found the virtual machine-based platform could not cost-effectively sustain desired performance levels. They needed to modernize and streamline their data management using a system that could scale as their business grows. The answer: update their platform systems to a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) in the cloud.
