TOKYO, JAPAN — NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and Veeva Japan, the Japanese affiliate of Veeva Systems, Inc., jointly announced today that Veeva Japan has started operation of a Tokyo data center that utilizes NTT Com’s high-quality global cloud service Biz Hosting Enterprise Cloud as a platform to better serve Japanese customers.

US-based Veeva Systems, a cloud-based business solutions provider in the life sciences industry, has been providing a variety of innovative cloud services, including customer relationship management (CRM) solutions tailored for pharmaceutical companies, offered in cooperation with Force.com, a cloud platform from Salesforce.com.

We will be providing better solutions and services to meet customer needs in the Japanese market.”

Motoo Tanaka, senior vice president of cloud services at NTT Com, said, “We are honored to have been chosen as a partner by Veeva Systems, a pioneer CRM solutions provider in the pharmaceutical industry. Biz Hosting Enterprise Cloud is a global cloud service consisting of robust and cutting-edge data centers, servers and networks that leverages NTT Com’s unique position as a telecom operator.
