Democratizing Shiny App Development: The Novartis DataPipeline Harmonized Framework


Motivated by the rapid rise in clinical data exploration, there is an increasing need to utilize interactive graphical displays using Shiny apps. To date, the development and deployment of study apps have required specialized knowledge and considerable effort. However, the similarity across domains and endpoints in clinical studies motivated us to build a comprehensive framework that scales shiny app creation across the portfolio. The Datapipeline harmonized framework democratizes the shiny app creation. It enables non-technical associates to create and deploy professional shiny applications quickly. It also empowers shiny developers to build reusable shiny modules that may be easily shared in a plug-and-play manner, ultimately accelerating future application development.
