Sanofi Selects Medidata Clinical Cloud As A Technology Standard Across Global R&D Organization

Medidata Solutions (NASDAQ: MDSO) has been selected by Sanofi, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, as the clinical technology standard for clinical data collection, management and reporting and performance-enhancing analytics across its entire R&D organization. Sanofi is actively transitioning to replace some of its existing clinical technologies with Medidata’s cloud-based solutions across all Sanofi Global R&D as part of a company-wide initiative to achieve cutting-edge productivity.

Sanofi manages one of the largest R&D organizations in the industry, with a diverse pipeline in vaccines, diabetes, oncology and orphan drugs, among other areas. Sanofi is focusing on maximizing the efficiency of its clinical development organization as well as improving visibility into the progress of its global trials, and undertook a competitive evaluation of clinical technology to support its research goals.

  • “Sanofi is involved in a significant amount of the industry’s most innovative research, greatly affecting the lives of millions of patients,” said Tarek Sherif, CEO, Medidata Solutions. “With the quality, complexity and volume of its research efforts comes the challenge of providing its R&D teams with the best technology for supporting the full range of its clinical studies. In this period of unprecedented change in drug development at Sanofi and industry-wide, selecting Medidata substantiates the value our solution offers today, improving operational and decision effectiveness and thereby accelerating timelines and minimizing costs and risk.”

Sanofi will implement Medidata’s electronic data capture, management and reporting, coding and safety data capture applications. Additionally, the organization chose Medidata’s clinical business analytics tool to provide metrics and industry benchmarks that enhances decision-making by executives and operational managers throughout the trial life cycle.

  • “As leading pharmaceutical companies look to transform their clinical development processes to achieve their productivity and revenue goals, it’s critical that they select vendors with the right business model, global scale and a flexible, feature-rich technology platform that serves both their current needs and their vision for the future,” said Sherif. “Medidata is excited to be working with Sanofi as it focuses on the next phase of its world-class product development.”
