Would you like to learn more about creating effective reports and visualizations to support your analysis?

Join us for the 2018 BizInt Smart Charts Analytics and Visualization Seminar and learn how to use the tools in the BizInt Smart Charts product family to create drug pipeline, clinical trial and IP reports and visualizations.

The seminar includes four practical workshops (see below for more details):

  • Creating a Pipeline Bulls-Eye (Pipeline)
  • Cookbook Training Recipes (Clinical Trials)
  • Creating Hit Structure Reports (Patents)
  • Creating IP Sequence Reports (Patents)

If you want "hands-on" experience, bring your laptop and follow along!

You will also learn about the latest features in Version 5 of BizInt Smart Charts Drug Development Suite and BizInt Smart Charts for Patents.

The morning session will focus on clinical trial and drug pipeline data. The afternoon session will focus on IP data, including hit structures and IP sequence data. Between the morning and afternoon sessions will be a Lunch and Learn presentation on Visualizing Clinical Trial Endpoints.

You can register for any or all of these sessions. You are welcome to come only for lunch if you like! The schedule includes time for networking with other analysts and BizInt Smart Charts users. And yes, there will be puppy photos and dachshund sport videos.

Location: The Residence Inn Boston Cambridge is located in the heart of Kendall Square, on the corner of Broadway and Ames Street. It is a few minutes walk from the MIT Kendall Square red line station. There is a public parking garage behind the hotel.

The seminar is free and is designed for both new, prospective and advanced users of BizInt Smart Charts and VantagePoint - Smart Charts Edition (VP-SCE). Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
