“They are great at integrating information into what they do daily,” added John Tapper, chief strategy officer, Ziment.
Merck was among the large companies given the thumbs-up by the panel. “Merck is a great example of a company getting, and implementing, strategies in the entire space,” said Meredith Abreu, VP at Manhattan Research. “They are very good at getting information out there.”
