Spotfire Clinical

Tibco Software has introduced Spotfire Clinical, an in-memory analytics platform that empowers clinical development teans to make smarter, faster and more accurate decisions. Through highly visual and interactive exploration of clinical data, Spotfire Clinical will enable actionable decisions that enhance patient safety, streamline operations and accelerate time to market for new medications and devices – leading to better medical outcomes for patients and allowing life sciences organisations to achieve drastically shorter development cycles and faster approvals of new medications.

Clinical development teams can quickly visualise and interact with enormous volumes of operational, clinical and safety data in a single interface to support forward-looking decisions, rather than retrospective tracking of results. By leveraging the new integrated S+/R statistics and predictive analytics capabilities of the platform, users will be able to conduct advanced what-if scenarios and sophisticated analysis to gain key insights into data, without the intervention of IT resources or biostatisticians.
