Major Acquisition of foreign Biopharma Company

As part of a major foreign acquisition, the pharmaceutical company is taking over more than 600 employees and production facilities. In this context, it was crucial for the acquisition to determine outsourced agreements for the integration and operation of the IT landscape.
