The discovery arm of Medivir®, a mid-size, Swedish pharmaceutical company, sought an updated informatics infrastructure to improve the efficiency and flexibility of its data analysis and reporting. The group’s existing in-house tools could only create reports in a few fixed formats. Team members manipulated the data manually in spreadsheet software before performing analyses; they then built reports, by hand, in presentation software.
The team aimed to reduce the time burden and error risk of manual data manipulations, while making it easier to manage data, access updates, and maintain project data tables. In addition, the scientists requested greater choice in analysis and reporting workflows.
