Accenture has been ranked the No. 1 life science information technology services vendor as shown in a recent survey conducted by IDC Health Insights. The survey, titled “IDC Health Insights Top 5 Preferred Life Science Technology Vendors for 2011,” found respondents expect to contract with Accenture over the next 12 months for IT services.
“We believe this ranking confirms our strong position in the marketplace, and shows that industry leading life science companies continue to rely on Accenture to provide them with the next generation of IT solutions that deliver innovation and proven business value,” said Mike Rainey, who oversees Accenture’s life science unit.
The survey polled 135 industry leaders on their planned IT budgetary spending, technology priorities and vendor preference, and asked respondents to identify which vendors in the life science market they expect to spend money on hardware, software and IT services over the next 12 months.
