IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) September 20, 2006
DataLabs, an innovative developer of Internet-based software applications for clinical development, today announced the launch of its Get Connected™ program. This new program provides the industry with a software development toolkit (SDK) to promote packaged integrations based on its new enterprise middleware product DataLabs Connect™.
A first for the biopharmaceutical industry, DataLabs Connect is a revolutionary middleware product that includes an application server, master catalog, management portal, connector framework, and predefined connectors that integrate the industry’s best-of-breed products with the DataLabs eClinical Solutions suite.
The Connect framework provides a standards-based integration hub to serve the needs of all enterprise-wide systems and removes integration technology dependencies on the data management solution. The product does most of the heavy lifting such as message queuing and error handling, reducing the time required to validate and develop desired integrations.
“Connect can be used to integrate any two systems, not just the DataLabs system – that is the true power of our solution. We have always been focused on standards-based solutions and felt strongly that an integration platform should not only serve our own product interests, but also serve the needs of our valued customers,” said Nick Richards, DataLabs chief operating officer.
DataLabs is already collaborating with Adobe Breeze (eLearning), Cardiff (CRF OCR/Imaging), Covance (Lab Import), Fast Track (Study Design), Galt Associates (Encoding), Integrated Clinical Systems (Reporting), Invivodata (ePRO), Perceptive IMPACT (CTMS) and Zorch Software (Project Management) to develop the industry’s most comprehensive and integrated eClinical system.
“One thing we have learned over the years in doing full technology transfers of the DataLabs solution is that integration with other systems is where companies begin to notice a quick return on investment. Time and cost savings will be tremendous as the number of standard connectors and integrations continue to grow,” said Richards. “Simply publishing a web service or proprietary interfaces is not sufficient for companies serious about implementing an enterprise solution.”
DataLabs also announced the launch of the DataLabs Integrator Partnership™ program, which offers a full SDK to empower other technology partners in the pharmaceutical space to develop their own connectors based on the DataLabs Connect framework.
Clinphone, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), and Sierra Software Technologies (SST) have already begun working on integrations for the DataLabs Integrator Partnership program.
