Simulations Plus | January 16, 2023
Simulations Plus, Inc. recently announced that its DILIsym Services (DSS) division released DILIsym® version X (DSX) Beta, the latest iteration of its flagship quantitative systems toxicology (QST) software for predicting and investigating drug-induced liver injury (DILI).
DILIsym modeling aids vital drug development decisions by prevising the potential DILI risk of new drug candidates. The modeling also identifies the biochemical events that contribute to DILI caused by a medicine and can thus predict specific subgroups of patients who are more likely to get DILI from that drug.
DILIsym modeling information helps guide go/no-go decisions on big drug development projects, potentially averting the terrible financial impacts of failed clinical trials or better offering reassurance that DILI will not be an insurmountable barrier to FDA approval. Over the past 12 years, the DILIsym Services division has coordinated the DILI-sim Initiative, a public-private partnership that helped guide the development of the DILIsym software package.
Some of the substantial updates for DSX include:
A complete software redesign that includes command line and graphical interface options and server/cloud computing capability (HPGL)
Four new exemplar compounds included with varying clinical presentations:
PF-04895162 (Generaux 2019)
Two new SimCohorts that include variability in susceptibility to liver injury and biomarker-related parameters (ALT and bilirubin)

Inspur Systems | January 05, 2023
In a recent announcement, Inspur Information’s NF8480M6 achieved a world record of 359,780 SAPS and is ranked first in SAP SD 2-tier performance benchmark for 4-socket servers using the Copper Lake platform.
The SAP Sales & Distribution (SD) 2-Tier Benchmark is widely recognized as a benchmark in a two-tier architecture based on sales and distribution modules. The SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark Test has evolved into a crucial indicator of operational performance for the production systems of actual enterprises. Many enterprise users regard it as a more flexible and valuable guide for selecting a server platform, since it considers exact production needs of enterprise users during the architecture design itself. A higher benchmark test score indicates that the server system can accommodate more users and offer more productivity for businesses or a higher SAPS value.
The record set by Inspur NF8480M6 in SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark for 4-Socket Servers is due to the design philosophy of openness, excellence, extremeness and security, which enables Inspur to increase usability, reliability and performance of its servers.
