The report, which analyzed the digital services capabilities of 21 IT service providers specific to the life sciences sector in Europe, highlights TCS’ credible digital transformation capabilities with scale and consistency of performance. Also highlighted as a key strength is the company’s focus on next-generation digital solutions such as the Advanced Drug Development Platform that uses artificial intelligence and IoT for drug development and patient engagement.

In a Business 4.0™ world, life sciences companies are actively embracing emerging digital technologies across the life sciences value chain to accelerate their growth and transformation agenda,” said Debashis Ghosh, President, Life Sciences and Healthcare, TCS. “Our leadership position in Europe with this report and in North America in an earlier report, validate our strong relationships with our customers, contextual knowledge of the different markets we cater to, a consistent successful record with digital use-cases and proactiveness in driving innovation using the Machine First Delivery Model (MFDMTM) for our Life Sciences customers.”

TCS partners with leading life sciences companies in leveraging next generation platforms and emerging technologies to drive innovation, gain speed-to-market, and drive internal efficiencies. The company offers a full set of digital transformation services and solutions including advisory services, predictive and prescriptive analytics, genomics research, advanced platform solutions, and cognitive business operations. Early investments in building capabilities in digital technologies in the form of reskilling the workforce, agile workplaces, and intellectual property have helped TCS gain significant scale and depth in the digital space.

TCS’ experts in the life sciences domain work closely with solution architects to come up with innovative solutions that use a combination of user-friendly omnichannel front-end technologies, AI, IoT, Big Data analytics, cognitive computing capabilities, robotic process automation, and cloud to reimagine the life sciences value chain. The company’s extensive portfolio of intellectual property – such as the Advanced Drug Development platform, Decision Fabric™ for drug safety and pharma, Connected Universe Platform, and Customer Engagement Platform – help customers achieve better speed to market and superior business outcomes.

The European life sciences market is quite heterogeneous, with different regions and clusters exhibiting specific demand tenets. As their digital initiatives move from pilots to programs, life sciences enterprises in Europe are looking for more strategic engagements around specific themes. Service providers need to address these specific business and technology challenges, in the context of a post-GDPR world to create distinctive market impact. Leveraging its Business 4.0™ framework, TCS is able to stitch end-to-end deals, underpinned by digital technologies, to advance the modernization mandate for European life sciences organizations,” said Jimit Arora, Partner, Everest Group.
