Phoenix® Connect

The strategic Phoenix component connecting Phoenix workflows and external programs

Phoenix Connect provides access to analysis tools for pharmacometricians in addition to the Phoenix analysis products.  It allows a user to easily replicate or modify an existing analysis workflow.  All the work done with external programs is saved as a single Phoenix project file that can be shared, changed, re-executed, and even saved as a workflow template that can be reused later with other datasets. Phoenix Connect can operate independently as a single standalone application or in concert with other Phoenix products (e.g., Phoenix WinNonlin or Phoenix NLME), providing access to Certara's clinical data repository PKS for all Phoenix products.


The Phoenix Connect framework for the 3rd party tools provides a powerful pharmacometrics modeling platform, where the analysis can be executed remotely via a separately-licensed Remote Processing Server (RPS). In connection with PKS, users will have real-time, shared access to up-to-date data sources, with access to all necessary analysis tools and existing computing resources (grids/clusters).

Phoenix Connect's seamless integration with PKS provides support for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, and offers an audit trail and version control of pharmacometric analyses. With this platform, users can easily replicate or modify an existing analysis workflow, can graphically illustrate the hierarchy of model development and have access to a global library for sharing all models and outputs. Finally, the Reporter module creates a report with all tables, graphs, and listings - literally with the push of a button.

Key Benefits

Reporting made easy

  • Graphics module that produces high-quality outputs for faster, integrated communication of results.
  • Reporter module allows the automated transfer of user-specified TLFs into a Word report and the addition of context-sensitive, auto-numbered captions and footnotes.

Computationally powerful

  • Capability to select desired development environments to edit and develop scripts for 3rd party tools.
  • Capability to execute most Phoenix Connect objects remotely in any platform that supports Java, using the new Remote Processing Server (licensed separately).

Seamless connection to data sources

  • Provides seamless connectivity to the Pharsight Knowledgebase Server database.
  • Features that enable PK/PD data sharing with collaborators and regulators using the CDISC SDTM standard import & export capabilities.
  • Access to any row-oriented data source that has a Microsoft® Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver accessed via the latest version of ODBC API.

Easy to share

  • All input data, model scripts, settings and results are stored as one Phoenix project that can easily be shared with other scientists who can modify and re-execute the analysis.
