Takeda has Chosen Omada to Deliver an Identity Governance and Administration Solution as a Managed Service, in Close Partnership with NNIT.


As one of the largest and leading global pharma companies in the world, Takeda depends on IT-solutions enabling them to strengthen, support and protect business critical operations. Searching for a global solution for identity management and governance access, all vendors in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant were initially considered. Omada has been positioned in the “challengers” quadrant in 2017, and in March, Takeda selected Omada as their vendor of choice based on solution requirements and ability to deliver. Established in 2000, Omada has a long track record in identity management and access governance software development.

Matthew Janiszewski, Global Head, Identity & Access Governance, Takeda states, “We operate in a highly regulated industry, consequently we only invited the absolute leading vendors in the market. Omada stood out as being able to address all of our requirements with an intuitive user interface. In particular, we support thousands of applications in our organization, and Omada was the only vendor with proven capability to handle disconnected apps and systems.”
