Certara to launch version 8.0 of D360 big data platform
Certara, a global biosimulation technology-enabled drug development and drug safety consulting company, will be launching version 8.0 of its D360 R&D big data platform for the biopharmaceutical industry.
Certara’s D360 R&D data platform solves big data challenges faced by scientists and IT staff throughout biopharmaceutical organizations by integrating and leveraging the large amount of diverse scientific data generated by sponsor companies and their outsourced partners to optimize crucial R&D decisions.
“D360 breaks down barriers between R&D siloes, giving executives access to the entire discovery, preclinical and clinical data collection when they need to make the crucially-important go/no-go decision on new drug candidates,” said Gavin Nichols, Certara’s president of technology and head of its software business unit. “By allowing development teams to leverage existing research fully, D360 has enabled our clients to optimize compound development to achieve specific parameters, improve safety profiles of promising candidates, guide future studies based on scientific and statistical data, and anticipate regulatory questions. In addition, D360 provides the C-suite with a flexible solution which can be easily scaled to fit new outsourcing business models.”
Nichols said, “By providing an end-to-end solution, D360 reduces the ongoing costs and time required to manage heterogeneous data platforms for the organization’s IT team. D360 also empowers scientific users by increasing the speed with which they can access information and making it easier for them to collaborate with other scientists.”
D360 provides scientific data integration, access, analysis and visualization capabilities for early discovery through to the preclinical and clinical phases of drug development. D360 solves both intra and inter-domain research challenges by integrating data from multiple source systems to provide standard data views and data mining capabilities. In addition, D360 brings context and understanding to the data, enabling scientists to gain deeper insight and make better scientific decisions.
D360 v8.0 builds on the platform’s base capabilities and includes connections to broader and more diverse data sets; new tools for collaboration within an organization and across external partners; and improved performance and usability, providing faster time to insight.
