To an audience of more than 850 industry leaders at the Veeva Commercial Summit, Veeva Systems unveiled Commercial Cloud – a next-generation solution to redefine how life sciences companies go to market. Veeva Commercial Cloud brings together the data, content, and interactions needed to deliver a fully informed, coordinated customer experience while ensuring compliance.
Orchestrating resources and channels in a fundamentally new way, Veeva Commercial Cloud delivers the interoperability, agility, and continuous innovation needed for faster time-to-market and responsiveness to industry and regulatory changes.
“Tremendous market pressure is forcing life sciences to reinvent its approach to sales and marketing. With a patchwork of inflexible systems and a lack of reliable data, life sciences companies struggle to meet the expectations of customers living in a world where anytime, anywhere access to personalized information is the norm,” said Eric Newmark, program director at IDC Health Insights. “The emergence of cloud as an enabler of multichannel engagement has ushered in a new wave of commercial transformation that will ultimately separate the leaders from the laggards.”
Veeva Commercial Cloud builds on a foundation of best-in-class solutions and unifies multichannel Veeva CRM, Veeva Network customer master, and Veeva Vault for regulated content management. “Veeva’s Commercial Cloud marries interactions, data, and content to drive more effective multichannel strategies,” said Matt Wallach, Veeva’s president and co-founder, during his keynote at the Veeva Commercial Summit. “We are making it easy for our customers to innovate by creating the very best applications for their key commercial functions, all seamlessly interoperating in the cloud.”
Veeva Commercial Cloud advances the life sciences industry’s urgent drive for global harmonization with technology that’s tailored to local needs, and establishes an enterprise-wide platform for increased efficiencies and cost savings. Whether used regionally or globally, the Commercial Cloud supports commercial operations, end-to-end, for organizations of all sizes.
The company also announced it is expanding Veeva Commercial Cloud with the addition of more communication channels for multichannel CRM and new offerings, including:
- Veeva Align to align resources to customers across all channels and define multichannel plans of action in a single country or worldwide. It increases the speed, flexibility, and accuracy of resource planning and alignment, ensuring resources are directed where they will have the greatest impact.
- Veeva CRM Meetings for the planning, management, and execution of group meetings with healthcare professionals (HCPs). A single, global solution, Veeva Meetings simplifies meetings management and provides the spend visibility necessary to meet transparency reporting requirements.
- Veeva CRM Engage is a digital platform for engaging with customers online, anytime, anywhere, through any device. Now HCPs can have self-service access to personalized information via the web with interactive content and services like ‘click-to-chat’ and ‘schedule a visit.’ Veeva Engage brings digital into a fully integrated multichannel mix and enables reuse of content from other channels including Veeva CLM.
- Veeva CRM Co-browse is an online collaboration solution for real-time screen sharing with customers. Veeva Co-browse allows call center, medical affairs, and field staff to collaborate and share content with customers online in a compliant way, and automatically captures all interaction details. Veeva Co-browse leverages content from Veeva CLM to maximize return on investment.
Veeva CRM Engage is available today. Veeva CRM Co-browse is planned for general availability in Q4 2014; Veeva Align, announced today, and Veeva CRM Meetings are planned for Q2 2015.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
