Deloitte Becomes One of the First Organizations to Achieve AWS Life Sciences Competency Status

Posted on: 30 Nov 17

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte, a leader in life sciences and health care consulting services, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Life Sciences Competency status. This designation recognizes Deloitte for its ability to build successful life sciences solutions on AWS to help customers conduct drug discovery, manage clinical trials, engage in manufacturing and distribution activities, and conduct research and development of novel genetic-based treatments and companion diagnostics.

Achieving the AWS Life Sciences Competency differentiates Deloitte as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success, delivering solutions successfully on AWS. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS knowledge and undergo an assessment of the security, performance and reliability of their solutions. In this case, Deloitte's ConvergeHEALTH family of products, coupled with being an industry-leader, was a clear differentiator.

"Deloitte is proud to be one of the first APN members to achieve AWS Life Sciences Competency status," said Michael Delone, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and US life sciences leader. "Deloitte is not only helping life sciences and health care clients with their cloud and data strategies, but is also building new industry specific solutions on AWS like our ConvergeHEALTH Miner and Safety platforms."

"As health care shifts to a value based, personalized paradigm, the access and use of the explosion of electronic health care data have become key to our life sciences clients," said Brett J. Davis, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and general manager, ConvergeHEALTH. "The ConvergeHEALTH Miner platform on AWS is helping life sciences innovators integrate and analyze real world health care data to drive new scientific breakthroughs that will have a positive impact on patients."

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology APN partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
