India-based Tata Consultancy Services, an IT services, business solutions and outsourcing firm, and Switzerland-based Roche, a research-focused healthcare group involved in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, have announced a partnership to advance Roche’s global capacity building initiative.
The partnership is aimed at providing services to a number of areas in Roche’s development organization, including clinical data management, clinical programming, biostatistics and drug safety support. It is also expected to support the demands of Roche’s increasing drug pipeline.
Jean-Jacques Garaud, Global Head of Pharma Development at Roche, said: For Roche, it was key to find the best partner for our GCBI initiative and the collaboration with TCS is the result of an extensive international search. The partnership with TCS will allow us to address the growing operational needs of our Development organization and to handle the increasing workload.
