PPD Launches New Technology Infrastructure

By Andrew Gray, posted Dec 11, 2009

PPD recently announced it has launched a new global information technology infrastructure for analysis and reporting of clinical trial data.

The biostatistics technology infrastructure (BTI) is a centralized computing platform that enhances the company’s ability to deliver secure, quality reporting and data analysis to meet client timelines, according to a press release

The virtual server environment allows PPD to deploy global teams of biostatisticians and programmers to projects on a single platform, the release said.

The analysis processing environments are located in the same data centers as PPD’s clinical data management systems, eliminating the need to move large quantities of data between file servers. Operating on this unified platform reduces bandwidth utilization, increases employee productivity and creates significant time savings.

“This new environment allows our employees around the world to work together, accessing the same data,” said Susan Atkinson, senior vice president, global biometrics and technical operations for PPD in the release. “Our investment in a global, innovative solution decreases our computer processing time and enhances our data security, giving us the ability to deliver more efficiently for our clients.”
