When Talecris and Siemens entered their partnership, Talecris faced substantial IT challenges, including a highly complex carve-out of existing infrastructure and systems from its previous owner. These areas included data center management, network management, service desk, end-user computing, and application development and maintenance as well as developing systems for new business functions and supporting the acquisition and build-out of its new plasma collection business.  

"We were looking for an IT partner to help us through an extremely dynamic period in our history," said Jim Engle, Chief Information Officer of Talecris. "We were simultaneously being carved out from our previous company and rapidly expanding our business. We needed a company with innovation experience and outstanding customer service. After going through a rigorous review process, we selected Siemens. They have served as a critical partner in helping Talecris achieve business results," Engle said.

Receiving this prestigious award affirms the effectiveness of the Talecris and Siemens partnership – and the relationship continues to deliver ongoing results, according to Jim Takes, Senior Vice President of Siemens. "Talecris continues to be an excellent partner," Takes said. "They have joined with us for a full suite of robust IT services and have integrated our people seamlessly into their own organization. We are included in their strategic and tactical meetings and encouraged to offer ideas for improvements and innovation. Their cooperation in our robust governance processes ensures a highly coordinated management approach. We simply could not ask for a more enlightened or cooperative partner than Talecris."
