I wrote about it on the day it was announced. Although based in California, Veeva has a significant presence in the Philly area, and this could be a fairly sizable offering, based on the multiples to revenue that similar SaaS/Cloud companies have received. The fact that Veeva has actually been profitable is another plus.
