Decision Resources Group Announces Partnership with Saama Technologies

June 4, 2014—Burlington, Mass. — Decision Resources Group (DRG), one of the world’s leading firms focusing on healthcare insights, data and analytics, and services, today announced that it is partnering with Saama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, to provide healthcare and life science organizations integrated and scalable analytic solutions that can extract value from the disparate data sources currently siloed throughout the industry. DRG recently launched DRG Analytics, a dedicated data science service that offers custom analytics and workflow tools. Its collaboration with Saama will enable DRG to leverage further its life sciences content expertise.

Healthcare and pharmaceutical companies seeking to gain a handle on their data often find that the usual enterprise-wide IT infrastructure solutions are a poor fit with their specific domain issues. The questions that life sciences businesses need answered are too specific for a generic solution to be satisfactory. DRG’s domain and data analysis expertise, combined with Saama’s long track record in end-to-end data management infrastructure, allow life sciences clients to choose a solution scaled to their needs. Saama’s extensive domain expertise in related work within the commercial side of pharmaceutical and biotech companies will be an ideal pairing with DRG.

“DRG has a strong foundation in understanding both the strategic and operational challenges within biopharmaceutical market access and sales operations,” said Brigham Hyde, Ph.D., Vice President of Data Science at DRG. “Our partnership with Saama enables us to provide our clients with a comprehensive, flexible analytics solution to meet their most pressing business needs.”

Saama Technologies has world-class experience in analytics and data science solutions. Focused on the complete lifecycle of data insights from data management to advanced analytics, Saama offers expertise across the full range of technologies and methodologies in the space, including analytics strategy, foundational data warehousing architecture, data integration, data management and governance, data science, big data, advanced visualization, and reporting and dashboards.

“We are pleased to collaborate with DRG to offer custom analytics and data science solutions that are informed by our extensive domain knowledge and technical expertise,” said Scott Clarke, VP & GM – Life Sciences & Healthcare at Saama Technologies. ”By combining DRG and Saama resources, we are able to offer customers a powerful, one-stop data and analytics shop.”
