Box Powers Cloud Collaboration for Leading Life Sciences Organizations

Box today announced that leading pharmaceutical and life sciences organizations Jazz Pharmaceuticals and Boston Scientific Corporation have recently chosen Box as their primary platform for managing and collaborating on content. These companies join Box’s growing pharmaceutical and life sciences customer base, which includes AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly and Company, Edwards Lifesciences and others.

"Pharmaceutical and life sciences companies have a tremendous opportunity to move critical business content like research materials and findings to the cloud, dramatically improving internal and external processes and increasing the speed and flow of information,” said Whitney Bouck, general manager of enterprise at Box. “For companies like Jazz Pharmaceuticals and Boston Scientific, Box provides the platform that powers secure global collaboration and drives productivity company-wide.”

Boston Scientific

Boston Scientific will deploy Box from AT&T to 23,000 global employees in an effort to enable more efficient, secure and user-friendly access to content on desktops and mobile devices. A key element in Boston Scientific’s company-wide Box deployment is the company’s relationship with AT&T Business Solutions. Boston Scientific relies on AT&T’s deep mobile expertise, advanced wired and wireless network, and array of technology services and applications across its operations. With a combined Box and AT&T solution, Boston Scientific will better meet the needs of its mobile sales force, which increasingly requires access to the latest collateral and information while on the road engaging with customers.

“Our IT group is focused on driving innovation across our company and helping us build a sustainable competitive advantage through technology and collaboration,” said Rich Adduci, CIO at Boston Scientific. “We’ve been leveraging mobile technology like iPads to improve how our sales teams communicate with physicians and health-care providers. Box is not only a secure, user-friendly tool for amplifying that mobile sales strategy, it’s also a platform that our entire employee base can use to collaborate and drive productivity and innovation.”

“Box from AT&T provides businesses an enriched mobile storage and collaboration experience. It represents a flexible and agile approach to mobilize and enhance business processes and communication in a highly secure fashion,” said Abhi Ingle, Senior Vice President, Advanced Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. “For companies like Boston Scientific, the ability to securely store and access content across a vast network of employees and platforms is invaluable.”

Ingle will appear during the morning keynote on September 4 at BoxWorks 2014.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals

Jazz Pharmaceuticals selected Box to enable internal and external collaboration while still meeting critical IT requirements for security. Box will be deployed company-wide as the primary tool for document collaboration and centralized content management.

“As our business continues to grow, we need a cloud partner that gives our employees who reside in multiple global locations, easy and secure access to business information from anywhere on any device. We also wanted a partner committed to rapid innovation that’s driven by our industry needs,” said Brian Shew, vice president and CIO at Jazz Pharmaceuticals. “With Box, we have an enabling collaboration platform for supporting our global business and entrepreneurial culture.”

AstraZeneca

AstraZeneca chose Box to power new ways of working – while securing IP – for faculty, staff, researchers and its mobile sales force. The company leverages Box for secure external collaboration between consultants and managed market groups. With Box, sales reps are able to access the most current collateral from mobile devices, even when offline.

"The IT landscape is changing so fast and CIOs need to implement the right tools to compete successfully in the market," said David Smoley, CIO at AstraZeneca. "Cloud technologies like Box have allowed us to remain nimble, while still placing an emphasis on internal control and innovation."

Eli Lilly

Lilly is using Box as part of its innovative global IT strategy to mobilize its global field workforce. The multi-phase initiative has increased the productivity, effectiveness and capabilities of mobile employees by deploying cloud applications including Box, Veeva on Salesforce.com and MobileIron on more than 20,000 iPads distributed across the organization. Lilly also takes advantage of Box’s OneCloud mobile app gallery, which offers easy connectivity to integrated mobile apps like Notability, Outline+, iThoughts and iAnnotate.

“By empowering our global workforce to work more efficiently and collaboratively with tools that truly support the way they want to work, we’re able to create a more connected and productive environment leading to improved customer experiences,” said Mike Meadows, Vice President and CTO at Lilly. “Moving to cloud and mobile technologies like Box and the iPad allows us to centralize our content and provide a unified mobility solution for our employees to get work done anytime, anywhere.”

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
