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.
