Decision Resources Group becomes Clarivate
One year ago, we welcomed Decision Resources Group (DRG) to the Clarivate portfolio of brands. Today we mark the next step in this journey as the DRG brand now becomes one with the Clarivate brand. Starting today, you will begin to see the DRG brand less and less as we migrate communications and, look and feel to the Clarivate brand. While you may still see some DRG branded communications here and there, over the coming weeks this will be replaced by Clarivate branding.
We’re incredibly excited about this next step in our union and would like to reassure our customers that we are here to support you. Even though we have a new look, our commitment to you remains the same. In fact, since the union of Clarivate and DRG, we have been able to support our customers with solutions across the entire drug, device and medical technology lifecycles. Our combined high-value data, analytics and insights products and services enable the world’s leading pharma, biotech and medical technology companies to achieve success in complex health markets. We are also taking stock of this opportunity to enhance our approach and service for a more unified and consistent brand experience for our valued customers.

How this supports our mission to help you innovate faster and accelerate patient outcomes
The union with DRG has accelerated the Clarivate strategy to be a leading global provider of information and insights to drive innovation. Our continuing investment in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) supports the industry’s ever-growing need to engage patients, physicians and payers in new ways, navigate barriers to access and adherence, and address patient unmet needs.
However, managing scientific and clinical innovation from concept to outcome can be challenging. Now, more than ever, the new imperative for global health driven by the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for connected data to support complex analyses and evidence-based decisions in the life sciences. A harmonized and connected data source addresses these obstacles by combining data, workflow and analytics into one intelligent platform to provide rapid, accurate insights to customers such as research-intensive organizations, drug and medical device developers, healthcare payors and providers worldwide.
As a company centered on innovation and transformation, our products and services are imagined, created and improved in a continuous, connected lifecycle of innovation: discover, protect, commercialize. Our mission is to help customers solve some of the world’s most complex problems and reduce the time from new ideas to life-changing inventions and treatments. The next step of migrating the DRG brand to Clarivate supports our mission, enabling users to benefit from more integrated solutions. A more unified and consistent brand experience for valued customers will deepen the end-to-end value chain and ultimately accelerate innovation and commercial efforts for customers.
How this affects you, our valued customer
Below we’ve outlined answers to any immediate questions that may arise from this transition. Should you have further questions, please reach out to your account manager or email DRG.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Is there anything I need to do as a customer in light of this transition?
No, we will inform customers ahead of time if any action is required on their part as we continue with the integration. We are excited to leverage our combined solutions to deliver greater value to our customers.
Q: Will my key contact change?
A: At this time, we do not expect changes to key contacts. However, if there are changes to your key contacts, you will hear directly from your account manager or our customer support teams.
Q: Will my legal contract as a customer change?
No, if your contract is with a specific DRG legal entity, this will remain the case. Going forwards, you can sign one contract with Clarivate which can cover any of the Clarivate products and services we offer.
Q: How will this affect my products and services?
A: Clarivate and DRG have complementary and synergistic product portfolios that will enable us to support the drug, device and medical technology landscape from research through to outcome. We are now building a common product strategy of delivering highly innovative solutions leveraging state-of-the-art data sciences, which will deliver an exceptional customer experience while accelerating our customers’ innovation and commercial growth. This will be achieved via highly specialized analytics and unique expert insights. DRG products and services will continue to be migrated into the Clarivate portfolio of offerings, enabling users to benefit from more integrated solutions. Over the coming months, you may notice changes to the names of some of the products or to their look and feel as we step away from positioning our acquired brands as separate, independent businesses or companies and present all our brands as part of one Clarivate.
