ADDIS status and future

19 Mar 2013 — Gert van Valkenhoef

The ADDIS 1.x software has been very successful as a prototype, and our decision to develop it as a desktop application has allowed us to focus on essential problems in evidence synthesis and decision analysis. However, the ADDIS vision can not be fully realized in a single user environment. The ADDIS 1.x retrospective provides an overview of design decisions made for ADDIS 1.x and their positive and negative consequences. It also identifies key changes that need to be made going forward.

The ADDIS 2.x requirements and architecture document summarizes the long-term vision and current status of ADDIS, identifies key requirements and proposes an architecture for ADDIS 2.x. Note that this document is focused on architecturally relevant non-functional requirements rather than on specific functional requirements (such as the types of analyses that should be supported). We're currently hiring new developers (updated 2013-04-26) to start implementing the new architecture.

GeMTC mailing list

16 Jan 2013 — Gert van Valkenhoef

Because of increasing interest in our GeMTC software for network meta-analysis, there is now a GeMTC release announcements mailing list. Subscribers are kept up-to-date on new releases of the GeMTC GUI and R package. We intend to keep the number of messages to a minimum; no more than about 1 per month.
