Medidata to Expand Cloud Platform

Medidata, the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions and data analytics for clinical research, plans to add regulated content and document management capabilities to the Medidata Clinical Cloud. In expanding its industry-leading technology platform, Medidata intends to eliminate system silos, providing customers with the ability to manage all content, data and workflows in a single, integrated platform that meets the most rigorous usability, scalability, performance and security requirements.

“We’re excited to add a new dimension to the powerful architecture that has cemented the Medidata Clinical Cloud as the industry standard for clinical trial technology driving scientific breakthroughs,” Tarek Sherif, Medidata’s chief executive officer said. “The life sciences industry has long struggled with manual, siloed processes for document and content management, creating significant challenges that delay trial timelines and impact overall time to market.”

Medidata has agreed to acquire CHITA, a cloud-based content management and collaboration system built on Box Platform, a suite of enterprise-grade content management and collaboration APIs from Box. CHITA allows users to create, store, view, edit and jointly work on both regulated and non-regulated content in a single application with cutting-edge UX capabilities. In addition, Medidata will partner with Box to develop a suite of breakthrough products for regulated document management built on Box Platform, including electronic trial master file (eTMF) and standard operating procedure (SOP) software solutions. The new offering will be integrated into the Medidata Clinical Cloud platform, enabling life sciences organizations to view and access clinical operations data in a unified system — simplifying collaboration between sponsors, sites and contract research organizations (CROs).
