MedTech is one of the fastest growing segments of the life sciences industry, with $465B in worldwide sales in 2019, that is expected to grow to $602B by 2024. MedTech is also one of the fastest growing segments of our customer base at Model N and were delighted to welcome many of our MedTech users to our Rainmaker LIVE virtual event last month. While many of you were able to join us online for the live event, we wanted to make sure we captured the highlights and made the recordings available for those who missed it or may want a recap.
The MedTech sessions at Rainmaker LIVE were designed to give attendees an inside look at our product direction and upcoming enhancements, to offer our technical expertise and training to customers, and to provide compelling content that inspires our customers to innovate on our platform while addressing current and expected future trends in the industry. Highlights of the MedTech agenda at Rainmaker LIVE included:
- RainmakerP Life Sciences. The RainmakerP sessions gave MedTech leaders an opportunity to glimpse inside our product development organization, with a look at planned new functionality for the coming years, as well as brainstorming about future ways we can make our customers more efficient and productive. Please contact your customer success manager or account team for information about these sessions.
- Model N University. This year, Model N offered complimentary Model N University sessions specific to the Powered by N and Flex platforms for life sciences as part of the Rainmaker agenda. These sold out interactive sessions offered tips and tricks for both new and accomplished users to grow their skills and mastery. A complete list of Model N University courses can be found here, and please feel free to contact your customer success manager or account team about opportunities to access future Model N University sessions.
