Digitalisation of internal processes with the Microsoft Power Platform

Biogen has positioned itself as a leading biotechnology company in the field of neuroscience. The pioneering spirit is not only evident in research in therapeutic areas such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease or spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Biogen is also constantly driving forward digitalisation in its internal processes. Biogen GmbH in Munich is Biogen's largest national subsidiary outside the USA. Due to the group structure, it is essential that new technical solutions can be easily integrated into the existing architecture. The sometimes time-consuming testing and approval processes for new applications in large companies can be significantly accelerated when based on Microsoft tools that have already been decided as internal company standards.

Focus on SharePoint and PowerApps Projects

The partnership collaboration with Arineo began in 2019. In the meantime, several projects have been deployed with Biogen Germany, including a coaching tool, as well as various SharePoint and PowerApps projects. In addition to the technical expertise, the specialist departments at Biogen also value Arineo’s process and solution-oriented approach.

"Especially when it comes to the users in the field, easy handling and having the applications on smartphones or tablets are crucial. The apps developed together with Arineo are, therefore, strongly geared towards the end user and achieve a high level of acceptance among colleagues in the field. This gives our teams more time to attend to the needs of our customers."

Microsoft Teams Online Meeting

Use of customisable and integrable apps

As Microsoft Teams has been defined as the global central platform for collaboration at Biogen, many employees have also been benefiting from the integration of other apps into the familiar Teams environment. The further development of Microsoft products is also being followed with great interest in Munich. What was once hard to imagine, despite rising usage since 2018, became reality in 2021: a virtual conference organised almost exclusively via Microsoft Teams with several hundred participants.
