Des cadres dirigeants de Merck Serono soutienne l'action de l'organisation caritative Wateraid International

GENÈVE, Suisse, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


  • Une vente aux enchères caritative donnera la possibilité à des personnes travaillant dans l'industrie des sciences de la vie d'enchérir pour partager un déjeuner privé avec des cadres dirigeants senior du secteur biopharmaceutique

Merck Serono, division de Merck (Darmstadt, Allemagne), est heureuse de participer à cette vente aux enchères caritative, organisée par Alacrita Consulting, au profit de Wateraid International. La vente sera l'occasion unique pour les participants issus de l'industrie des sciences de la vie d'enchérir pour tenter de bénéficier d'un déjeuner privé de deux heures avec des cadres dirigeants senior de l'industrie pharmaceutique, dont trois de chez Merck Serono.

WaterAid International investit pour transformer la vie des habitants des pays les plus pauvres du monde en améliorant l'accès à l'eau potable et les conditions d'hygiène.  

"En notre qualité de leader du milieu biopharmaceutique, il nous tient à cœur de venir en aide aux populations dans le besoin," a déclaré Stefan Oschmann, Directeur Général de Merck Serono et Membre du Conseil d'Administration de Merck. "La responsabilité sociale de l'entreprise est solidement ancrée dans notre culture et dans nos valeurs, ainsi en témoigne l'exemple donné ici par nos plus haut cadres dirigeants. Nous sommes fiers de pouvoir accorder du temps - un bien précieux - à des actions comme celles menées par Wateraid International."

Les trois dirigeants de Merck Serono qui participeront à cette vente aux enchères caritative (en proposant un déjeuner privé conjoint) sont :

  • Belén Garijo, Vice-Présidente Exécutive et Responsable des Opérations
  • Susan Jane Herbert, Vice-Présidente Exécutive et Responsable du Développement Produits au niveau mondial
  • Annalisa Jenkins, Vice-Présidente Exécutive et Directrice Développement & Affaires Médicales au niveau mondial

Les enchères caritatives auront lieu en ligne à l'adresse internet suivante :

http://www.alacritaconsulting.com/news/alacrita-2012-life-science-charity-auction

Les enchères seront ouvertes du 3 au 13 décembre 2012. Le déjeuner avec les trois dirigeants de Merck Serono se tiendra courant 2013, à une date et en un lieu qui seront convenus d'un commun accord avec tous les participants.  

La participation de Merck à cette opération caritative reflète fortement l'engagement du groupe en termes de responsabilité sociale. A titre d'exemple, en 2007, Merck avait pris l'engagement de faire don à l'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé de 200 millions de comprimés de Cesol® 600 ayant pour substance active le praziquantel, destinés principalement à être distribués aux enfants africains scolarisés. L'objectif de ce don était de traiter à terme 27 millions d'enfants souffrant de schistosomiase dans les régions d'Afrique les plus sévèrement touchées par cette maladie. Il était initialement prévu que le projet se termine en 2017, mais Merck Serono a décidé de prolonger ses efforts jusqu'à ce que la schistosomiase soit éradiquée. Aussi, à moyen terme, l'entreprise envisage d'augmenter le volume de sa donation annuelle de praziquantel de 25 millions à 250 millions de comprimés, ce qui représente un coût annuel d'environ 23 millions de dollars. La schistosomiase est une maladie parasitaire transmise par des vers trémadotes, touchant tout particulièrement les enfants. C'est la deuxième maladie tropicale la plus répandue en Afrique, après le paludisme. Chaque année, environ 200 000 personnes meurent de cette maladie insidieuse.

A propos de Merck Serono

Merck Serono est la division biopharmaceutique de Merck KGaA. Merck Serono, dont le siège est à Darmstadt (Allemagne), met à la disposition des patients, dans 150 pays, des médicaments majeurs dans les domaines de l'oncologie, de la sclérose en plaques, de l'infertilité, des troubles endocriniens et métaboliques, ainsi que dans le domaine des maladies cardio-vasculaires. Aux États-Unis et au Canada, EMD Serono opère en tant que filiale juridiquement indépendante de Merck Serono.

Merck Serono découvre, développe, produit et commercialise des médicaments de prescription obtenus par synthèse chimique ou issus des biotechnologies dans des indications relevant de spécialistes. Notre engagement fort en recherche et développement vise à offrir des nouvelles solutions thérapeutiques dans nos principaux domaines d'activité que sont les maladies neurodégénératives, l'oncologie et la rhumatologie.

A propos de Merck

Merck est un groupe pharmaceutique et chimique mondial, dont les ventes se sont élevées à 10,3 milliards d'euros en 2011. Fort d'une histoire qui a commencé en 1668, Merck construit son avenir grâce à environ 40 000 employés répartis dans 67 pays. L'une des clés de sa réussite tient au sens de l'innovation de ses employés. Les activités de Merck sont chapeautées par la société Merck KGaA, dont le capital est détenu à hauteur d'environ 70% par la famille Merck et à hauteur d'environ 30% par des actionnaires extérieurs. L'ancienne filiale américaine Merck & Co. est totalement autonome depuis 1917, et n'a depuis plus aucun lien avec le groupe Merck.

Virtualization Articles & Feature Stories
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo--to be held November 4-6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in the heart of Silicon Valley--will expand the DevO...
With the capability to reduce both CapEx and OpEx, it’s easy to see why the SDN-NFV trend has taken hold in the hosting and mobile industry. Early use cases include network virtualization from cloud service providers and enterprise data centers, bandwidth calendaring and network tapping. While this early traction is promising and receiving great praise in the public eye, some of the most promising deployments are being seen in the cable multi-system-operator (MSO) industry. While these use cases...
In this challenging environment, a combination of automated integration testing and test virtualization can enable test teams to improve software quality and keep up with the rate of change. This white paper helps address these needs by describing the benefits that can be gained through a proactive and continuous approach to integration testing with IBM® Rational® test automation solutions.
Latest Virtualization Conference News

VMware vSphere 5.5 also expanded its support by allowing configurations with two times the previous physical CPU, memory and NUMA node limits.
After joining with Southeastern Asset Management in signing an open letter to Dell’s special board committee – which is wrestling with Michael Dell’s offer to pay $13.75 a share, 10 cents more a share, to change how the stockholders vote on his leverage buy-out offer is counted – telling the special committee he expected them to tell Michael Dell “no” – activist investor Carl Icahn wrote another open letter to Dell shareholders characterizing Michael Dell as a “whining” “sore loser” and major co...
Dell CEO Michael Dell told the Wall Street Journal in an e-mail exchange over the weekend that he intends to stay with the company if his multibillion-dollar offer to buy the joint and take it private isn’t approved by the stockholders. He also said that he won’t support Carl Icahn’s notion of a leverage recapitalization or Icahn’s schemes to put the company deeper in debt or sell off some its assets to pay shareholders an ostensibly higher price. Michael reiterated that the spec...
Best Recent Articles on Cloud Computing & Big Data Topics
As we enter a new year, it is time to look back over the past year and resolve to improve upon it. In 2014, we will see more service providers resolve to add more personalization in enterprise technology. Below are seven predictions about what will drive this trend toward personalization.
IT organizations face a growing demand for faster innovation and new applications to support emerging opportunities in social, mobile, growth markets, Big Data analytics, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and more. This is great news because it shows that IT continues to be a key stakeholder in delivering business service innovation. However, it also means that IT must deliver new innovation despite flat budgets, while maintaining existing services that grow more complex every day.
Cloud computing is transforming the way businesses think about and leverage technology. As a result, the general understanding of cloud computing has come a long way in a short time. However, there are still many misconceptions about what cloud computing is and what it can do for businesses that adopt this game-changing computing model. In this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan, Rex Wang, Vice President of Product Marketing at Oracle, discusses and dispels some of the common myths about cloud computing that still exist today.
Despite the economy, cloud computing is doing well. Gartner estimates the cloud market will double by 2016 to $206 billion. The time for dabbling in the cloud is over! The 14th International Cloud Expo, co-located with 5th International Big Data Expo and 3rd International SDN Expo, to be held June 10-12, 2014, at the Javits Center in New York City, N.Y. announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies (see suggested topics below). Cloud computing helps IT cut infrastructure costs while adding new features and services to grow core businesses. Clouds can help grow margins as costs are cut back but service offerings are expanded.

What do you get when you combine Big Data technologies….like Pig and Hive? A flying pig? No, you get a “Logical Data Warehouse.” In 2012, Infochimps (now CSC) leveraged its early use of stream processing, NoSQLs, and Hadoop to create a design pattern which combined real-time, ad-hoc, and batch analytics. This concept of combining the best-in-breed Big Data technologies will continue to advance across the industry until the entire legacy (and proprietary) data infrastructure stack will be replaced with a new (and open) one.
While unprecedented technological advances have been made in healthcare in areas such as genomics, digital imaging and Health Information Systems, access to this information has been not been easy for both the healthcare provider and the patient themselves. Regulatory compliance and controls, information lock-in in proprietary Electronic Health Record systems and security concerns have made it difficult to share data across health care providers.

Ulitzer.com announced "the World's 30 most influential Cloud bloggers," who collectively generated more than 24 million Ulitzer page views. Ulitzer's annual "most influential Cloud bloggers" list was announced at Cloud Expo, which drew more delegates than all other Cloud-related events put together worldwide.

It's a simple fact that the better sales reps understand their prospects' intentions, preferences and pain points during calls, the more business they'll close. Each day, as your prospects interact with websites and social media platforms, their behavioral data profile is expanding. It's now possible to gain unprecedented insight into prospects' content preferences, product needs and budget. We hear a lot about how valuable Big Data is to sales and marketing teams. But data itself is only valuable when it's part of a bigger story, made visible in the right context.
Cloud Expo, Inc. has announced today that Larry Carvalho has been named Tech Chair of Cloud Expo® 2014. 14th International Cloud Expo will take place on June 10-12, 2014, at the Javits Center in New York City, New York, and 15th International Cloud Expo® will take place on November 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone talks about a cloud-first or mobile-first strategy. It's the trend du jour, and for good reason as these innovative technologies have revolutionized an industry and made savvy companies a lot of money. But consider for a minute what's emerging with the Age of Context and the Internet of Things. Devices, interfaces, everyday objects are becoming endowed with computing smarts. This is creating an unprecedented focus on the Application Programming Interface (API) as developers seek to connect these devices and interfaces to create new supporting services and hybrids. I call this trend the move toward an API-first business model and strategy.
We live in a world that requires us to compete on our differential use of time and information, yet only a fraction of information workers today have access to the analytical capabilities they need to make better decisions. Now, with the advent of a new generation of embedded business intelligence (BI) platforms, cloud developers are disrupting the world of analytics. They are using these new BI platforms to inject more intelligence into the applications business people use every day. As a result, data-driven decision-making is finally on track to become the rule, not the exception.

The keys to the digital kingdom are credentials. In no industry is this more true (and ultimately more damaging) than financial services. The sophistication of the attacks used to gather those credentials and thwart the increasingly complex authentication process that guards financial transactions is sometimes staggering. That's because they require not just stealth but coordination across multiple touch points in the transaction process.
It was great catching up with Brian at VMworld, even if it was in the Tea Garden.  We go back a ways.  This 6 minute video clip discusses who will win the cloud wars and how CloudVelox differentiates from a dozen or so early cloud migration and DR tools.  
Encrypting cloud storage is now in the mainstream, the accepted best practice and a business imperative. Across the world and all industries, enterprises need to encrypt cloud data to stay compliant, safe and competitive. There are several offerings of encrypted cloud storage for enterprises.

This post is the first in a multi-part series of posts on the many options for collecting and forwarding log data from different platforms and the pros and cons of each. In this first post we will focus on Syslog, and will provide background on the protocol. Syslog has been around for a number of decades and provides a protocol used for transporting event messages between computer systems and software applications. The protocol utilizes a layered architecture, which allows the use of any number of transport protocols for transmission of syslog messages. It also provides a message format that ...
