NEWTOWN, Pa., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioClinica®, Inc., the global provider of clinical trial management solutions, today announced that Europe was the fastest growing geographic region in 2013 for its eClinical technology products. The Company plans continued investments in its European workforce in the areas of operations and sales, potentially doubling its European eClinical presence in 2014. The growing team supports BioClinica's full suite of eClinical offerings, including CTMS, EDC, IRT, and clinical supplies planning. Currently, the Company has employees in corporate offices in Lyon, France; Leiden, The Netherlands; and Munich, Germany, with additional personnel in Switzerland, Belgium and the United Kingdom.
According to Martijn Princen, BioClinica's Head of European eClinical Sales, "One of the pillars for success in this or any geographic market essentially is the eClinical technology itself. With a web-based, easy-to-use platform, supported by experienced people on the ground here in Europe, more and more companies are selecting BioClinica for both European and global studies."
BioClinica's diverse European customer base includes Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Medical Device companies, with CROs and mid-market organizations comprising the largest new market share.
Several industry-leading companies will participate in BioClinica's first European User Conference to be held in Cologne, Germany on 26 February which will feature presentations from companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Grunenthal, Sanofi, Biosense Webster, TauRx, and Cerbomed. BioClinica Technology Partner NNIT will lead a session on SharePoint implementation, systems integration, and validation. The European User Conference will be held at the Microsoft Executive Briefing Center in Cologne, a fitting location as BioClinica is an elite member of Microsoft's Partner Network.
"In terms of innovation, OnPoint CTMS and Trident IRT have been the big attention-getters, driven by the need for better speed and flexibility that is central to clinical research. For example, a CTMS needs to grow with an organization and have capacity to manage complex clinical trials long-term," Princen explains and adds, "Now the trend is for large and mid-size Sponsors and CROs to replace their existing CTMS with a more sophisticated end-to-end clinical trial management solution."
Such is the case with Mundipharma, a dynamic pharmaceutical research and development company that has selected BioClinica's OnPoint CTMS for various aspects of its clinical trial management activity. "The industry has been searching for a more innovative approach to managing the dynamics of running international studies, and BioClinica is filling that need," Princen says. "As for growing CROs, OnPoint CTMS enables them to more efficiently manage studies for a rapidly expanding client base and on a global scale."
Aside from tremendous CTMS growth, BioClinica is experiencing increased demand for IRT and EDC solutions, particularly by CROs. This comes on the heels of several major IRT and EDC implementations, including one study with 17,000 subjects and 442 sites in 17 countries. "Our success supporting global studies like this drives even greater interest in our technologies," Princen says.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
