Guides Help Organizations to Prepare Regulatory Content Submissions Using Structured Content Management Best Practices AARHUS, DENMARK and KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – 9 September 2015 – DitaExchange™ announced today the release of DxTemplates™ for Life Sciences to enable organizations in this highly regulated industry to quickly build key  regulatory submission documents using Dx4™ and structured content management (SCM) best practices. DxTemplates for Life Sciences help companies prepare regulatory submission documents for Modules 2, 3 and 5 of the Common Technical Document (CTD). Since its inception in 2003, the CTD has revolutionized the regulatory review process, led to harmonized electronic submissions, and enabled implementation of good review practices. It has also eliminated the need to reformat the information for submission to the different ICH regulatory authorities. DxTemplates guide authors by providing the required topic components and maps that are used to create the final regulatory submission. “Life Sciences companies world-wide adhere to the ICH standards and submission guidelines.

Next Generation Structured Content Management Solution Launched by DitaExchange

Dx4 Helps Highly Regulated Companies Tackle Growing Challenges AARHUS, DENMARK and KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – 13 April 2015 – DitaExchange™ announced today the release of the newest version of its groundbreaking structured content management solution, Dx4™. Built to run on the Microsoft SharePoint or Microsoft Office 365 platforms, Dx4 enables organizations to create and store modular content so that it is infinitely re-usable with the ability to consistently publish anywhere in the format recipients require. Companies in highly regulated industries such as financial services and life sciences, generate large quantities of content some of which must be provided to various regulatory bodies. Traditional content management systems allow for the storage and approval of documents as a whole making re-use cumbersome and prone to error. Dx4 enables contributors to author content modules that can be individually authored and approved so that they can be used for many purposes across the organization in a consistent manner. “Documentation required in regulated industries can often be used for many different purposes, but most content management systems do not allow effective re-use of these materials,” said Jim Nichols, vice president, DitaExchange. “Using DITA principles, Dx4 enables content that has traditionally been locked away into a static document to be re- used easily while saving time in authoring and approval processes.” Dx4 runs on the SharePoint platform – on premise or in Microsoft Office 365 and Azure and uses a Microsoft Word interface extending the use of current technologies that many organizations are already using. Training is also greatly reduced, as these systems are common business tools. Dx4 Features Flexible delivery options Dx4 is...
