COSA

CDISC Open Source Alliance

The CDISC Open-Source Alliance (COSA) supports, promotes, and sometimes sponsors open-source software projects that create tools for implementing or developing CDISC standards to drive innovation in the CDISC community.

COSA is directed by a Governance Board that evaluates projects for inclusion in the COSA Repository Directory, sets the project inclusion criteria, and determines what committees are needed to lead COSA activities. COSA activities may include communications or events like webinars, conference sessions, or hackathons. COSA seeks to collaborate with other open-source initiatives with similar missions.

The COSA Repository Directory lists repositories that are officially recognized by COSA as being open-source projects focused on implementing or developing CDISC standards to drive innovation in the CDISC community. All COSA projects must meet the inclusion criteria to be considered for inclusion in the Repository Directory.

CDISC held a webinar 18 November 2021 to demonstrate the first COSA-approved tools. Learn the basics of how you can leverage these tools the facilitate the implementation of CDISC standards in your systems.
