Project Description

Crystal is an analytics software product for clinical trial operation that visualizes complex operational clinical trial data. It provides transparency and monitoring into BI clinical trial performance.

Crystal is developed using an Agile methodology, a blend of scrum and Kanban.

Background to the assignment

The product aims to visualize complex data stories in compelling ways, utilizing data visualization and data storytelling best practices in graphs, charts, infographics, dashboards, and geographic visualization techniques.

A core aspect of this methodology is that all people who are involved in a product development endeavor are self-sufficient and do not follow any instructions. The steps and ways of how overarching goals are achieved can be defined by the contractor independently and individually. This special combination of know-how is not available at Boehringer Ingelheim. Due to this special combination of know-how, the external Contractor will have an outstanding position compared to the internal project staff and will perform significantly different services than the internal staff.
