Phoenix Knowledgebase Server (PKS)

PKS for Clinical Data Management: Improved Productivity and 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance

PKS, the Phoenix® Knowledgebase Server™, is a solution for protected and structured storage, access and change tracking for clinical study data, analyses and related files. It is integrated with Phoenix, the industry-leading modeling and analysis platform, for state-of-the-art modeling and analyses. PKS is accessed via Phoenix. It also works seamlessly with Certara’s PK Automation tool, AutoPilot Toolkit for Phoenix, to provide a configurable software solution for standardized and regulatory-compliant routine analyses and automatic generation of PK output in tables and figures for final and intermediate reports and presentations. With PKS, users can:

  • Capture, manage, and store study data and associated analyses across drug development programs or indications in a secure, regulatory-compliant environment
  • Analyze, summarize, and report the knowledge relating to both existing drugs and new compounds
  • Support import (through PKS Data Connectors) and export of data in a variety of formats, including SDTM—the CDISC-defined standard for tabulation of study data

Furthermore, organizations can easily expand PKS implementation to encompass any and all files and content beyond PK/PKD data, including warehousing, managing, sharing, and versioning any Microsoft application document, csv file, SAS file, and more.
