Data Integration as a Service (DiaaS)


The Situation Today

The Clinical Data Interchange Standard Consortium (CDISC) has been shown to decrease the resources needed by 60% overall and 70-90% in the start-up stages of a research process. However, while adapting the CDISC suite of standards, companies are facing conversion challenges, such as:-

  • Changing requirements: an ever changing regulatory environment, standards, and business needs

  • Lack of company-wide data standards: definition changes, inconsistencies over time, cross institutions, and data in silos

  • Slow turn around:  hard to collaborate enterprise level efforts, acquire resources with special skills in a short time, and tedious effort during submissions

  • Organic growth: inability to  scale up or reuse narrowly focused architectures

All these challenges are contributing to over budgeting, project delays, reduced functionality and a low quality of projects.
