Last month, CDISC announced that S-cubed has now been a member for 10 years.

Niels Both started our working relationship with CDISC, as a member of the European Coordinating Committee (E3C) and quickly became an authorised SDTM and ADaM trainer. His depth of knowledge and expertise has ensured that our clients have continued to deliver high quality data to the FDA. As the CDISC work has continued to expand at S-cubed, so have our team.

Why choose S-cubed to support your CDISC work?

Our team are experienced across the clinical trial lifecycle and have encountered many of the challenges that can be faced when starting to use Standards within a company. These can range from larger issues such as implementing companywide system and organisational changes, to focusing on the knotty problem of which variable to use in SDTM and creating custom domains. Whatever the challenge, we will have a range of expertise to work within a company or to work remotely. Our customers return to us time and time again because we deliver high quality data and provide a level of service that makes us unique.

This year, we are back at the CDISC Interchange presenting and exhibiting, alongside our sister company A3 Informatics. We recognise that although the CDISC standards are the foundation for the way data are collected and submitted, managing changes, updates, new code lists and staying on top of the latest releases has become an increasing challenge for everyone using standards (Read the A3 Blog to see a more detailed discussion about this). The FDA are still considering the different ‘flavours’ of SDTM that they receive. This causes new rules to be created and the consistency that was meant to be part of the CDISC standards is gradually broken down. However, A3 Informatics, using linked data and graph technology have developed a set of tools to overcome many of the problems associated with define.xml and building studies in a standard way. It’s an exciting time and as the A3 team develop the Glandon Suite, our clients are keen to embrace this new technology that can be implemented without disrupting the day to day working environment and delivers on its promise of delivering better data.

So for those of you travelling to Berlin at the end of the month, come and visit us on our stand and chat to us about the way you work in your organisation. Can we help you implement standards? Do you need assistance with CDISC conversions? Can our highly qualified statistical consultants help you to deliver high quality data on time, every time? Are there questions you’d like to ask us about the future of data standards? Whatever your needs, big or small, S-cubed is proud to support CDISC now and into the future.
