The user-friendly ODM to SDTM Mapping software - Information about previous versions

The software with the lowest cost benefit ratio for generating SDTM/SEND datasets!

Information about the most recent version can be found here

The SDTM-ETLTM software is considered to be the lowest cost - highest benefit software for creating SDTM and SEND datasets in the industry. All that is required is that your EDC system can export clinical data in CDISC ODM format (most EDC systems do so).
SDTM-ETL is completely "SAS®-free", i.e. unlike other solutions, you do not need an (expensive) SAS® license, nor do you need any statistical software.

SDTM-ETL comes with an extremely user-friendly graphical user interface, allowing to create most of the mappings by drag-and-drop or per mouseclick.

Many CROs and service providers have already discovered SDTM-ETL and are using it for preparing their submissions to the regulatory authorities.

Although the use of the SDTM-ETL software is very intuitive, many of our customers desire to get some training to start working with the software.
In our experience, one day of training usually suffices to make a jumpstart with the software. Such trainings are of course offered by us, usually at the location of the customer.

A copy of the tutorial, explaining many of the features of the software, and used during trainings, is available on request.

We are currently also developing online training materials


The SDTM-ETL software is available at highly competitive prices. Considerably volume discounts can be obtained. Academic licenses are available at a reduced price.
