Life sciences SaaS and cloud solution provider Veeva Systems this week tightened its partnership with Salesforce.com to deliver CRM applications to global pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Veeva, which is one of CRN's 30 Cloud VARs That Get It, has made itself a cloud Pharma CRM powerhouse through its existing partnership with Salesforce and its Force.com platform.
