The TABULATOR is an ETL solution (Extraction-Transformation-Loading), which works independently of databases because it is built on the CDISC define.xml standard. It enables users to create tabbed CDISC SDTM-compliant datasets ready for submission to the authorities or for reporting purposes. Data managers can define mapping instructions for converting CDISC ODM data into CDISC SDTM or other partially denormalized datasets.
Mapping instructions can contain instructions for selection, copying or complex data conversion. The TABULATOR can be used independently of the controlled CDISC terminology or to convert old data into the CDISC standard.
