PDI, Inc. provides sales and marketing commercialization services for established and emerging biopharmaceutical companies.

“Without Informatica Cloud, PDI’s sales teams would be working blind. This flexible, easy-to-use SaaS-based integration service is helping the company achieve a significant return on data, drive sales in areas that were otherwise down, and increase margins by eliminating on-premise integration technology.”

—Jo Ann Saitta, Vice President, PDI, Inc.
