NEW YORK -- July 31, 2013

Daiichi Sankyo Co., Ltd., a top 20 pharmaceutical company headquartered in
Japan, is expanding its use of Medidata Solutions’ (NASDAQ: MDSO) cloud-based
platform to support clinical trials conducted by its division in China. A
long-time Medidata customer, Daiichi Sankyo will bring Medidata’s
industry-leading applications for electronic data capture (EDC) and clinical
data management (CDM) and randomization and trial supply management (RTSM) to
its expanding clinical work in China. Daiichi Sankyo’s investment in the
Medidata Clinical Cloud™ for its China division is expected to streamline
trial activities, improve the efficiency of data capture and increase the
productivity of site users and clinical monitors.

By adopting Medidata’s industry-leading data capture, management and reporting
solution (Medidata Rave^®) in conjunction with its agile randomization and
trial supply management solution (Medidata Balance^®), Daiichi Sankyo will
have access to a single cloud-based platform that provides a unified
environment in which site staff will conduct patient randomization, supply
dispensing and clinical data capture, as well as enabling collaboration and
insightful metrics visibility for the whole research team.

Daiichi Sankyo chose the Medidata platform for its expansion in China based on
the improvements realized from its large-scale use of the Medidata platform
since 2005. Medidata Services Partner Tigermed, a leading contract research
organization (CRO), was involved in the selection and implementation of the
Medidata platform for the China-based work.

“Medidata and Daiichi Sankyo have a long and fruitful relationship as
collaborators, and we are delighted they have asked us to provide the
efficient, effective and modern infrastructure needed for their clinical
development programs in China,” said Glen de Vries, president, Medidata
Solutions. “Organizations like Daiichi Sankyo that leverage innovative
clinical technologies will be the leaders in bringing new life-enhancing
treatments to market.”
