IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Life Science Manufacturing and Supply Chain Strategic Consulting 2015 Vendor Assessment

Author: Eric Newmark Program Vice President, Cloud, SaaS and Industry Cloud

This IDC Health Insights report provides an assessment of where the life science manufacturing and supply chain strategic consulting market is going, how the major vendors compare with each other, and what criteria are most important for life science companies to consider when selecting a strategic consulting vendor.

Eric Newmark, program director of IDC Health Insights' Commercial Life Sciences research, noted, "Manufacturers are under increasing market pressure to improve enterprise agility, develop drugs faster, and eliminate waste from all manufacturing and supply chain–related processes. Companies are also faced with increased regulatory pressure and strengthening generic competition, which are driving industry consolidation as companies look to capitalize on cross-company synergies and overlapping overhead structures. Within the life sciences, there continues to be strong demand for external partners that have strong life science–specific industry expertise and can help achieve these goals in a cheaper, more flexible fashion. If you are looking for assistance in selecting a third-party service provider for manufacturing or supply chain strategic consulting, the guidance provided in this IDC MarketScape is a great place to start."
