SAS Develops Software to Help Researchers Analyze Data in the Cloud

June 16 — Analytics leader SAS has developed software to help clinical researchers instantly query and analyze data in the cloud. With the new offering, biopharmaceutical organizations can improve the efficiency and productivity of clinical research and speed lifesaving therapies and devices to market.

SAS Life Science Analytics Framework combines features of SAS Drug Development and SAS Clinical Data Integration to provide a single, integrated analytics foundation for clinical research. The solution delivers three key efficiencies:

  • Provides a repository optimized for data standards management.
  • Eases the burden of project management through easier workflows.
  • Streamlines access to analytics.

“From an information management perspective, the world is becoming an order of magnitude more complex, with highly challenging, diverse data security and regulatory compliance process requirements,” said Alan Louie PhD, Research Director, IDC Health Insights. “As a result, R&D is undergoing a significant transformation as companies seek to improve the efficiency of their new drug development. SAS is well poised with its latest software to help customers get the most value from their clinical research data.”

For more than a decade, SAS has been securely hosting clinical research solutions for life science companies in the cloud. This offering builds on that track record.

“Data is the rocket fuel for innovation in life sciences,” said Graham Hughes, MD, Chief Medical Officer of the SAS Center for Health Analytics and Insights. “Anything that speeds up the process of data analysis is usually rapidly embraced by our customers, and SAS’ cloud-based Life Science Analytics Framework does just that by reducing deployment time and technical complexity for customers, while providing reliable access to the most widely adopted analytic tools in the industry.”

SAS will demonstrate its life sciences products in Booth 1323 during the DIA 2014 Annual Meeting in San Diego, June 16-18. Learn more about SAS Life Science Analytics Framework and read Deploying an Analytics Foundation for Clinical Research.
