    • CDISC checkers

      Built in SDTM and ADaM checks for compliance with all published CDISC versions. Supports inclusion of custom checks. Includes available controlled terminology like MedDRA and WHODrug. Includes checks on value level metadata and supplemental qualifiers.

    • ODM Validator

      Checks for compliance with ODM standard.

    • Reconcilliation checker

      Offers sophisticated checking capabilities for any kind of data reconciliation.

    • Spotfire Integration

      Push data into TIBCO Spotfire® from entimICE or pull data from entimICE while working in Spotfire for industry standard visualization of your clinical data.
Program Development
    • Statistical Programming

      Built-in feature-rich editors, including syntax highlighting for SAS, R and SQL. External editors configurable based on user preferences. External program development directly on the repository with native tools, using Enterprise Data Access.

    • Program Execution

      Built-in execution facilities utilizing central servers for SAS, R and SQL. entimICE metadata information made accessible for program code at runtime via macro or environment variables. Optional use of parameters and different value sets to efficiently re-run programs on different data. Direct access to generated log and output files.

    • Traceability

      Automatic execution trace for each SAS, R and SQL execution including inputs used and outputs produced. Automatic detection of outdated outputs and the ability to re-run the relevant programs.

    • Use of Integrated or External Tools

      Internal editors with syntax highlighting and program snippet execution are readily available within the system, while it is just as easy to use any familiar third-party tools for program development and execution.

    • Automation Tools

      A scripting API is available for automation of routine tasks, and a batch box offers the capability to execute a series of programs, with configurable notification on succesful completion or error messages on an unsuccessful run.

entimICE Enterprise Data Access (EDA)

What is entimICE EDA?

entimICE EDA provides easy, secure and high-performing access to all clinical data and metadata in entimICE, as well as access to external filesystems or databases. Source data are retrieved as virtual tables, which can be joined and combined by a full-featured SQL language. Retrieval of data can be executed by any tool of choice, while individual user access rights are always taken into account.

entimICE EDA Business Value

entimICE EDA enables immediate availability of any data for a smooth and efficient analysis process of clinical studies, even if unexpected data access requests suddenly arise. Any analysis tool, e.g. R Studio, Python or Jupyter, can take advantage of EDA to allow easy, secure and high-performing access to clinical or any other related data. EDA enables connectivity with all common IT tools and data storage technologies, while providing access to any data or metadata in entimICE at the same time.
