    Accelrys Shines a Spotlight on CDD in BioIT World



    Per the recent write-up by Kevin Davies in BioIT World, we welcome industry leader Accelrys (with many very different products under their umbrella) to the collaborative SAAS space we’ve been focused on for over 7 years. CDD Projects right in collaborative CDD Vaults let you easily collaborate in your natural workflows – no multiple data uploads, no holes in firewalls.

    This announcement provides a general validation of the economic value of hosting sensitive drug discovery data in the cloud. It is also a specific validation of the CDD platform, with Accerlys mentioning CDD in the interview:

    Accelrys has signed a partnership with SCYNEXIS for its HEOS software, which is hosted in a data center managed by the CRO. “They wanted to add value for large pharma,” says Brown. “They built this system to handle all types of data.” The closest competition, as Brown sees it, is from CDD (Collaborative Drug Discovery).

    We welcome them to the SAAS party – competitors are collaborators in this day and age. We look forward to collaborating with them and engaging the full ecosystem to support global neglected disease and commercial collaborative drug discovery.
