About CDD Vault

CDD Vault is a cloud-based informatics platform designed to help research foundations, hospitals, academic labs, pharmaceutical and consumer goods companies organize, track and analyze biological and chemical data.

CDD Vault enables drug discovery teams to search for experiments and results in a structure-activity relationship (SAR) table and filter substructures to detect patterns. Project teams can collaborate and share datasets with team members, measure the quality of results through heatmap visualizations or plate statistics and generate custom reports. The solution lets professionals document research using text, images, tables, and files, coach teammates in real-time and design custom electronic lab notebook (ELN) forms.

CDD Is an ideally suited scientific database management system for our start-up biotech

Excellent database management system Web-based platform for rapid data analysis and sharing Fast evaluation of new design ideas Easy export to specialized data visualization applications

Pros

In our drug discovery organization, CDD is a central feature for biological data storage, analysis, and reporting. Its intuitive interface requires a minimal learning curve to register compounds, generate assay curve fittings, and produce useful data reports. Numerous built-in options allow additional customization to your projects or your organization. Sharing specific data with collaborators is very easy through the use of readily available links, user-defined collections, and saved searches. We use separate virtual vaults to record, communicate, and assess new design ideas, thanks to a growing list of "calculated chemical properties" offered within CDD Vault. The support team at CDD is exceptionally responsive and helpful, allowing all our requests to be promptly and effectively answered.

Cons

The CDD team is eager to keep improving their product via customer feedback, and thus most of the CONS eventually get resolved over time. One function that we would really benefit from is a temporary "working space", where data could be reviewed and analyzed by the uploading scientist prior to publishing to the main vault for all collaborators to see and use.

CDD gets high marks for design, ease of use, functionality and reliability as a platform

Pros

Each feature is well thought out, tested (yes tested!) and documented. The interface is clean and does not overwhelm the end user or admin with unlimited configuration. I have helped deploy this software at over a dozen biotechs and most are up and running in a week. Compare that with a an expensive slow deployment of most other drug discovery platforms. Loading data into the system is quite easy and reliable with "error" and "warning" messages which are descriptive. Searching for and viewing data also gets high marks. From an admin perspective I find the system to have very low overhead.

Cons

There is not a lot I dislike about CDD, most items are addressed by the development team via a request. If I had to pick something it would probably be updating DRC data (specifically DRC) which has already been processed by end users. Ultimately this can be a bit cumbersome as you can either update in the CDD interface which is not quite perfect for editing this data OR you can reload the data. Reloading the data is less than desirable so it would be great if the interface undergoes some renovations.

Great data base but could be better

It's a great software for this price, compared to other software. But they need to improve some aspect of it.

Pros

I really like how we can customize everything according to our needs. I also really like the ELN (optional)

Cons

I do NOT like at all the graph given by CDD vault. It's not graphic, we can't change anything on it. We will still have to use graphpad prism for the paper/grants figure.

Excellent software and even better customer service.

Pros

We use CDD to store, manage and analyze large amounts of drug discovery data generated from high-throughput screens and dose-response assays. To automate data analysis, we make extensive use of curve-fitting software (which works!). We've found numerous benefits of using the CDD software for drug discovery. For example, one can quickly find all data associated with a given compound ' and within that data, track down data associated with individual batches of the compound. We also use CDD to share data with our collaborators using a feature of saving searches, which entails the collaborator simply clicking a button to visualize data in a format that we set up. The best feature, of course, is that CDD's staff is fantastic and incredibly helpful. Unlike other companies, they quickly get back to us to address our questions ' often by phone ' and have made every effort to facilitate our work so we can focus on drug discovery and not spend our time worrying about database management.

As a bioinformatician scientist, I find this tool very useful.

Pros

As a bioinformatician scientist I find this tool very useful. It serves both our biologists and medicinal chemists scientists. The fact that it includes additional outsource valuable resource of information e.g. PDB, Chemogenomics databases assists sometimes in first-step hits characterization. Helps to organize the data coming from different sources e.g. Genedata Flexible tool; you can add your own features such as comments, supplier, synthesis notes etc The Support team should get 13 out of 10 STARS, one of the best support that I got.

Cons

The QC process currently only provide several reports, but I think that professional tools that enables to search the database directly could be better.
