Development of the Pfizer Integrated Research Data System Socrates
This paper describes the development of SOCRATES, a state-of-the-art user-oriented interactive research data management system in regular use in Pfizer Central Research, Sandwich. The chief attribute of SOCRATES is a high degree of integration of both data and functionality, achieved primarily through the exploitation of a database management system, System 1032, and the effective use of bit screen arrays. These technical features are described and illustrated with examples of SOCRATES in use.
