Statistical Computing Environment

30-minute intro to elluminate Statistical Computing Environment (SCE)

Automate Statistical Analysis Processes with an Integrated SCE

The Statistical Computing Environment (SCE) within the elluminate Clinical Data Cloud® provides one centralized place for all data, metadata, programs, and results – Increasing the efficiency, traceability, and visibility of your statistical analyses.

Increase Development Efficiency

Programmers and statisticians develop and maintain programs and scripts from popular programming languages (SAS, R, and Python) and execute those programs against data within the platform. elluminate SCE enhances the value of taking a platform approach by leveraging data, standards, and mappings to maximize reuse and increase programming and analysis efficiencies.

  • Gain access to all data and metadata across the system
  • Utilize the integrated code editor for comprehensive version control of programs, collaborative editing and review, and full software development lifecycle tracking
  • Leverage code snippets, macros, and functions from a Global Library of reusable code
Mapper

Streamline Execution

  • View metadata about the program including location, version history, execution history and data dependencies
  • Reproduce results through unified version tracking of code, data, metadata, and execution environment
  • Build workflows to support business processes and direct SCE users to assigned tasks that support critical pathways for study deliverables

Automate Workflow

  • Schedule programs to execute automatically upon updates to data or completion of other elluminate tasks
  • Auto-create programs based on configurable templates
  • Visualize data flow – including processes from other elluminate modules – all the way from source to output

FAQ

What is a Statistical Computing Environment?

A statistical computing environment is a system that provides a foundation for documenting rigor in the analysis and reporting of clinical trial results. Central to an SCE is the ability to increase the efficiency, traceability, and visibility of statistical analyses. For more information on this subject, please refer to our Ebook: The Digital Statistical Computing Environment (SCE) Playbook for Clinical Development.

What programming languages are compatible with elluminate SCE?

Programs can be written in SAS, R, and Python.

How quickly can elluminate SCE be deployed?

After deployment of the elluminate platform, the SCE can be added and configured in under 2 weeks.

Why elluminate SCE?

The SCE within the elluminate Clinical Data Cloud provides one centralized place for all data, metadata, programs, and results increasing the efficiency, traceability, and visibility of statistical analyses. elluminate SCE enhances the value of taking a platform approach by leveraging data, standards, and mappings to maximize reuse and increase programming and analyses efficiencies.

Is it possible to maintain a standard centralized code repository including validated (locked) macros in elluminate SCE?

Yes, a library of reusable code snippets, macros, and functions can be built and maintained.

Is it possible to get visual represenations of code dependencies from macros and other programs?

Yes, elluminate SCE enables users to track dependencies and view the flow of data from source to output, seeing not only SCE programs, but steps from other areas of elluminate (including Importer and Mapper).

Can I use my own preferred programming interface while keeping the audit trail in elluminate SCE?

Yes, users are able to edit programs within the system and also import / export to view and edit outside of the system.

Can I view a specific data audit trail from origin to analysis results?

Yes, the results of program executions can be viewed through unified version tracking of code, data, metadata, and execution environment.

How can I assign tasks and how granular is the task assignment?

Task-based workflows can be built to support your business processes. Rather than traversing a directory tree and picking programs, SCE users are quickly directed to their assigned tasks and see in context how their efforts support the critical pathway for study deliverables.

Do I have to log out and re-sign in to the system each time I perform a different function (eg auditor vs. programmer)?

No. Role-based permissions allow users to accomplish all of the tasks associated with their various roles and to seamlessly transition from one type of function to another.
