December 12, 2018

Now that the long-awaited SDTMIG 3.3 has been officially released, Pinnacle 21 team has eagerly began to implement validation rules for this new standard. As the first step, we performed a gap analysis for changes since SDTMIG 3.2. We excited to share our findings with the CDISC community, which you can find in the slides along with summary of changes below.
