Shire, a global specialty biopharmaceutical company, selected SAS Drug Development as the platform for its clinical trials data. SAS’ scalability and flexibility were features important to Shire, which has grown rapidly through acquisitions and mergers over its nearly twenty-five year history. Shire, which has a presence in 23 countries and markets medicines in more than 45 countries, needed a global solution for managing and processing its clinical trial data. “Shire is excited about our partnership with SAS, and we look forward to leveraging the SAS Drug Development platform to manage our clinical trial data,” said Nick Ronca, associate director clinical R&D, Shire Pharmaceuticals. 

Italian superstore chain Esselunga S.p.A. moved its enterprise data warehouse platform to Netezza, consolidating its data and enhancing consistency when compiling statutory reports.  Driven by a desire to improve the performance and control the costs associated with its analytics, Esselunga is using the Netezza data warehouse appliance for geo marketing, customer scoring according to frequency and spend, as well as interactive reporting. The IT manager for data warehousing and business intelligence director at Esselunga explained, "We selected Netezza for its proven ability to outperform legacy systems and tailor analytics to our needs. The system came recommended by our trusted IT partner, ICare. Specialists in data warehousing and business intelligence, ICare specified and supplied the complete solution.
