In addition, we carry out a number of innovative initiatives in the area of BI. Our innovations are presented at international conferences related to BI, for example: Informatica World.
Our specialists are responsible for developing BigData & Analytics applications. Technologically speaking, we are a relatively small group that creates information processing systems for many business lines. It requires us to be flexible and to constantly improve in terms of both the technology and business.
As a member of Global IT, we have developed a global BigData strategy in order to support the organization with the challenges posed by personalized healthcare as well as as broaden the horizons of traditional business departments thanks to the possibility of processing unstructured data. Our strongest point is ensuring the quality of the information we gather, so as to provide our users with the most accurate information possible. We cooperate with other ADMD departments to create modern applications that allow users to use the data we prepare.
Currently, we cooperate with the Marketing, Medical Information, Diagnostic and Production departments on several issues; this list is expanding, therefore we are constantly enhancing our understanding of the organization.
We participate in IT Fairs in many locations, as part of the Global Community of Practice we share our knowledge and solutions so we can make sure that what we create in Poland is of the highest quality.
We work closely with both our partners from the global IT departments and directly with our colleagues in the company. In our business, every day we face new challenges in the field of data processing which result in us having to dynamically adjust our competencies and way of leading projects. The vast majority of these are small agile projects whose results are quickly adopted by the end users.
.NET has been present on the programming market for over ten years and is a younger brother of the Java technology. It is worth mentioning that the first ADMD employee was indeed a .NET programmer.
Experts from the .NET team develop software using the latest Microsoft technologies, which also include Open Source solutions.
Our motto is “Quality through diversity”. The team consists of specialists with a very broad spectrum of competencies. We create native applications for Windows, web applications, we support integration with Active Directory, create back-end part of mobile applications (iOS) and Business Intelligence tools based on the MS SQL Server family. In addition, we also prepare solutions for information management and support cooperation both internally and between teams of doctors, scientists and specialists from many other areas within Roche. The newest hot topic for us are BigData technologies.
The main strength of the team is that we participate in software development from the beginning to the end and we are pretty familiar with agile technologies (SCRUM).
We cooperate with customers from around the world and participate in global Roche projects, therefore travelling to more or less exotic countries is not a foreign concept for anyone. We participate in international conferences, we are trained by world-renowned experts and we share our urgent and interesting challenges on our weekly Community of Practice meetings. We have comfortable conditions in the office: our standards include powerful hardware as well as access to the latest technology and tools available on the market: VS2015, Docker, R#.
Our activities include reporting on all SAP business areas, starting with the maintenance of applications delivered by SAP, to the implementation and development of own solutions supporting business processes at Roche, ending with comprehensive design and implementation of reporting solutions. Designing includes the modelling of reporting structures and data flows, as well as integration with other environments (ETL) to ensure consistency and flexibility of SAP Business Warehouse reporting. We develop and use advanced planning solutions to support planning directly in SAP BW (Integrated Planning). We take care of proper access to gathered information (SAP Authorization) gathered by individuals, countries and regions. Our solutions must be stable and inspire confidence for our customers (BASIS). We focus on innovative reporting solutions (SAP Design Studio). We use the most advanced solutions available on the market (SAP HANA) and combine different tools and technologies (BSP Applications) to ensure that our partners receive the most efficient solutions.

We use a number of tools supporting application development management processes (HP Service Manager, HP Application Lifecycle Management and others).
We are constantly improving our qualifications thanks to our participation in projects, conferences and trainings – both externally and internally, organized within the company, as well as through knowledge-sharing forums.
All of the above allows us to actively seek technological improvements in our customers’ processes and provides us with the opportunity for continuous development.
Why did you opt for career at Roche?
I decided to work for Roche because the job perfectly matches my abilities.
The opportunity to combine my interests with the job, interesting projects as well as broad perspectives for the development of technical knowledge and soft competencies alike were also crucial.
Projects conducted by the company follow recognised methodologies such as ITIL, and cover different geographic areas, enabling cooperation with people from different regions, thereby enhancing teamwork, project management, language and interpersonal skills. Moreover, the company takes care of its employees, striving to make them feel that they play an important role. Undoubtedly, this affects the working environment.
My greatest achievement?
From the technical point of view, the most interesting challenge for me was the work on the Business Objects platform, which is one of the largest systems in the world.
An important task, from the organizational point of view, was establishing the training team and running training courses in Business Objects all over the world (our team has already trained over 350 people in Shanghai, Indianapolis, Madrid and other places).
As for me, I most appreciate my continuous development. At the beginning, I was employed with Roche as a Senior Specialist and then I had the opportunity to manage the Business Objects team. Now I’m a Technical Team Leader and run a team of nearly 60 BI specialists. The company not only offered me a managerial position, but invested a lot in my development. Presently, I support and develop my own people (five members of my team hold global positions and coordinate international projects).
Why is my work important?
In ADMD, we work together on technologies that solve problems and reveal new possibilities. If we make the work of some people more efficient, they’ll be able to do the same for others. I believe that in a broader perspective it is most beneficial for patients.
I heartily recommend employment in Roche to all young IT professionals. You will find here a positive and motivating atmosphere of synergy that combines the energy and enthusiasm of younger workers with the experience and wide knowledge of their older colleagues. This usually brings amazing results. I also appreciate the good financial and social conditions as well as enormous possibilities of education and development.
Why the Roche IT department?
As ADMD cooperates with Roche IT teams based all over the world, we may get involved in globally managed projects and have contact with the latest technologies. By working in different teams, we’re able not only to develop our skills in technology but also to try out different roles and improve our soft skills. I’ve been with Roche for a few years now and in that period I’ve worked as a Senior Specialist, Unit Leader, and Technical Leader, as well as a global Change Coordinator and Development Manager.
I highly appreciate the work atmosphere in Roche, which is focused on cooperation, mutual trust, respect for knowledge and support for innovations. If you’re looking for personal development, you’ll never get bored here. :)
Describe briefly your greatest achievement or the most interesting project in which you participated at Roche
It was a version and documentation management system. The reason I found this project interesting was because we worked with teams located all over Europe as well as in the US; all communication was in English, different time zones were involved, that in itself was a challenge. Later we also developed application versions for mobile devices.
Every day I have the opportunity to participate in creating something new. It is incredible to know that my work may influence e.g. the quality of medical care, and therefore the patients’ life may depend on it!
