The need to continually transform
Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited partnered with TCS in September 2019 to develop an end-to-end BizDevOps digital product delivery model.
The idea was to push the pedal on developing digital-led products, to innovate at scale, and transform customer experience in the areas of supply chain, manufacturing, procurement, and finance.
Takeda creates treatments for patients in multiple therapy areas, including small molecule and oncology, biologics, plasma and cell, and gene. In the pharmaceutical industry, as is seen in many other sectors, the development of technology assets has traditionally been approached via fixed long-term planning processes that rely on project-based information technology life cycles, and monolithic enterprise resource planning (ERP) technologies that underpin complex global business processes.
Takeda and TCS together saw room for enhanced agility, collaboration, improved end-user experiences, and an opportunity to build more granular digital products and services on lean cloud platform.
