AMAG Pharma opts for cloud over internal infrastructure

AMAG Pharmaceuticals, since 2009, has prohibited internal lines of business from buying any kind of software but SaaS. IT director Nathan McBride "wants to get the entire company to the cloud as soon as possible." He's succeeded so far with an adverse event database, T&E reporting, e-signatures and human resources management. Google GDocs is the company standard for storing documents that require collaboration; Gmail is the e-mail system. All back up to the AWS storage cloud. Story
