October 27, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Chapel Hill, NC- Greg Nelson, President and CEO of ThotWave Technologies, has announced the production release of Covance’s SAS 9 Global Architecture. The three year long project aimed to modernize Covance’s SAS infrastructure, and consisted of designing and implementing a global SAS9 architecture for Covance.

“We are extremely pleased with the Covance project and its launch,” said Nelson. “Covance is sure to benefit not only from the updated technology platform, but also the abilities to address operational challenges, provide improved interfaces for stakeholders across the clinical trial value chain, and provide a platform for innovation for years to come. Covance will no doubt realize an improvement in efficiency and an immense and important return on investment.”

“The new SAS Global Architecture means that we now have integrated, around the clock capability across all of our offices around the world,” said York. “With centralized metadata and processes, we can deploy resources regardless of location and utilize skills around the globe to help deliver value to the client. In addition, this platform creates greater efficiencies and enhanced capabilities built on the SAS 9 platform.”

Andrew York, Director of Biometrics Operations at Covance and Greg Nelson presented a paper on this project at the third annual Pharmaceutical Users Software Exchange (PhUSE) Conference in Lisbon, Portugal this month. For more information, contact ThotWave Technologies at 800-584-2819 or visit
