Enterprise Content Management Systems Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

Enterprise content management (ECM) systems have a buyer power score of 3.5 out of 5.0. This score reflects positive but somewhat limited negotiation power for buyers. Favorable pricing trends and low market risks help increase this score, while a negative market structure limits it, says IBISWorld procurement analyst Andrew Yang.

Pricing trends have been fairly favorable for buyers because prices have remained fairly stable in the three years to 2013. Demand has increased in response to the economic recovery. Businesses are being created and investments in software have increased, says Yang. In addition, internet traffic volume has surged, indicating an increased volume of data that will require enterprise content management systems to manage and organize, but the developments in cloud computing and open source software have moderated price increases. This has lowered barriers to entry, increasing competition in the market and placing pressure on suppliers to keep prices low. These trends are expected to continue, helping keep prices stable in the three years to 2016.

Buyers also benefit from relatively low market risks. Most ECM system providers are well-established software publishers with very low financial risks. In addition, providers are not dependent on any critical inputs for the development and delivery of their products. These low market risks indicate that buyers can expect that delivery of ECM systems will not be disrupted by providers undergoing financial difficulty or providers unable to obtain critical inputs. This factor is especially for important for buyers because they will be dependent on their provider to perform service and maintenance after purchase.

A negative market structure significantly lowers the buyer power score. ECM systems are very complex software systems that require significant technical expertise, manpower and financial resources to develop and deliver. As a result, it is a very specialized product with a relatively small number of suppliers that can deliver the product. There are very few substitutes with the same functionality and features of a dedicated ECM system. Switching costs are very high, increasing the risk that the buyer may get locked in with a supplier. Major suppliers include International Business Machines Corporation, OpenText Corporation, EMC and Microsoft Corporation.

MannKind Corporation Implements BioPharm Systems Siebel Clinical Trial Management System Accelerator to Support Growing Product Pipeline


San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

MannKind Corporation has implemented BioPharm Systems ASCEND, a pre-configured and enhanced version of Oracles Siebel Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS), to support its growing biopharmaceutical product pipeline. ASCEND is replacing MannKinds existing commercial CTMS, which no longer meets the needs of their clinical operations team. In addition to choosing ASCEND, MannKind also elected to leverage BioPharms cloud hosting platform and managed services in order to reduce costs and save time.

In addition to the implementation of the base version of ASCEND, MannKind has identified a set of custom configurations, as well as integrations with their electronic data capture (EDC) systems, Oracle Clinical (OC) and Remote Data Capture (RDC), to be included in their first release of ASCEND. Despite these complexities, BioPharm is providing MannKind with a quick return on investment (ROI) by managing the project with its “rolling release” approach, in which each of the work streams are executed in parallel, yet still under validation control. This innovative strategy is enabling MannKind to begin benefiting from ASCEND before all of the work streams have been completed.

One of the key areas of ASCEND that MannKind has chosen to customize is the site payments process. Prior to ASCEND, MannKind managed all site payments manually, including complexities like withholding percentages, site advances, and overhead costs. Working together, MannKind and BioPharm have designed a solution that makes use of Siebel Clinicals existing functionality plus a few intelligent enhancements, resulting in a system that supports a fully automated site payments process.

“Ive managed many Siebel Clinical and ASCEND implementations over the years, and I have to commend MannKind on their approach to this project,” said Param Singh, vice president of clinical trial management solutions, BioPharm Systems. “So many companies try to over-engineer their CTMS solutions, but MannKind really saw the value in a pre-configured accelerator and opted not to reinvent the wheel, but rather to take full advantage of the best practices built into ASCEND, with just a handful of thoughtful customizations.”

BioPharm is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and an Oracle Accelerate solution provider. The company has achieved Specializations in Oracle Argus Safety Suite, Oracle Life Sciences Data Hub, and Oracle Accelerate for Midsize Companies.
