Webinar: The next generation of Regulatory Document Management is here!

05 April 2016

Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

The majority of currently used Document Management Systems (DMS) have been fossilized in many companies, while the needs of changing business processes and regulatory demands have increased. At this free Webinar, we explained the difference between traditional DMS systems and the new "integral" solution, presented the value and business potential of the next generation "integral" DMS, and suggested migration approach from legacy systems to the new "integral" solution. 

Integral Document Management system

Document Management needs to be part of a holistic Regulatory and Quality Information Management solution, supporting Marketing Authorizations and orchestrated by easy to apply Change Controls on any level. This should enable risk-based validation of the system. The demands for greater granularity of content and data are being required by the authorities. The segmentation between Document Management and Publishing has been disappearing.


A new demand for global context requires the direct involvement of local affiliates as an integral part of these critical global processes while not losing the requirements for local needs. Governance of content and data in such an environment needs to be re-thought to eliminate the requirements for manual interventions. When the DMS is built with a new "integral" architecture, it is conceptually part of the next generation RIM (as described by GENS & Associates), reusing master regulatory and quality data not only for Document Management, but also for other modules like RIMS, XEVMPD/IDMP, Publishing, ERP and others. The new architecture enables the management of all related content in context with product data, which will then be shared with each solution module. Every document and every related data object has its regulatory history, allowing impact assessment in both a local and global context. This allows for optimal automation of document creation and processing. A DMS architecture in this new "integral" design will  dramatically reduce the upgrade and validation effort.

Are you tired of:

  • Separated docbases for R&D, TMF and Quality?
  • Slow and old fashioned, or simplistic and unsophisticated user interfaces?
  • Costly upgrade projects with extensive re-validation for every new version of your tool?
  • Unpredictability or lack of direction from your current vendor?
  • High number of limited functionality interfaces to other systems?
  • Redundancy of data, documents and data entry?

Key Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the value and business potential of this next generation "integral" DMS
  • Understand the difference between traditional EDMS systems like CSC FirstDoc, IBM Score, Veeva Vault, EMC D2 and the new "Integral" DMS
  • Follow a suggested migration approach from legacy DMS to the new "integral" solution
  • Create your own assessment to include your own preferences to deploy on- or off-premises, to the cloud, and/or to a shared infrastructure
