DataTree is Inpharmation’s expertly designed forecast scaling solution for multi-segment forecasts. Scaling up forecast models is a major challenge for the pharma industry. “Generic” forecasting templates may solve the scaling up issue – but they cannot capture the all-important, unique dynamics in a specific market.
The best forecast models have been carefully crafted to fit the shape of a specific market. Inpharmation’s FlexiCastTM platform has 73 models which can be used to flexibly answer your specific therapy area forecast requirements:
- A modular approach reduces forecast errors; most new forecasts contain errors. In fact studies show that 94% of spreadsheet models contain serious errors, when not scaled using Inpharmation’s forecast scaling software, DataTree.
- Inpharmation’s phRISK HyperCubeTM for DataTree allows you to run Monte-Carlo simulations where traditional approaches fail.
- Most pharma forecast models incorrectly simulate therapy area-specific dynamics, such as multiple treatment steps in oncology forecasts. Inpharmation has two decades of experience delivering Pharma-SpecificTM bespoke forecast models.

- DataTree is the next logical step: DataTree allows you to take a single spreadsheet and automatically scale it up into a multi-country, multi-therapy area, multi-patient segment, multi-indication model.
- That minimizes the chance of errors: DataTree applies battle-tested technology to the scaling-up of forecast models and eliminates the quality nightmare.
- And provides a host of additional features: DataTree also provides a host of additional functionality that lies far beyond the power of conventional Excel workbooks. This includes simplifying the way forecasts are shared, consolidated and analyzed.
