Hospira, Inc. is a global specialty pharmaceutical and medication delivery company dedicated to Advancing Wellness(TM). As the world leader in specialty generic injectable pharmaceuticals, Hospira offers one of the broadest portfolios of generic acute-care and oncology injectables, as well as integrated infusion therapy and medication management solutions. Through its products, Hospira helps improve the safety, cost and productivity of patient care. The company is headquartered in Lake Forest, Ill., and has approximately 13,500 employees.
Hospira provides Hospira MedNet to healthcare settings worldwide; its reports must be created in a range of languages, date formats, and systems of measurement (usually imperial or metric). The solution is usually installed and maintained by client (hospital or clinic) IT departments, where resources are frequently at a premium—so Hospira works to make the solution as easy to maintain and use as possible.
Hospira quickly developed a preference for the Jaspersoft solution. The Hospira development team found the Jaspersoft report designer, iReport, to be extremely straightforward and intuitive, which allowed a much quicker ramp-up time for the development teams.
With the transition to Jaspersoft BI technology, Hospira enjoys lower development, maintenance and support costs.
