The industry needs this type of creative approaches to solve technology challenges in the clinical space

CSC Life Sciences has formed a strategic alliance with InnovoCommerce, LLC, the world’s leading Microsoft SharePoint-based clinical and investigator portal solution provider, aiming to offer the pharmaceutical industry an integrated clinical solution. The arrangement has been formed to help address the growing industry need for robust, flexible and economical clinical solutions. The solutions are needed to optimize the clinical value chain; from internal regulated content control to the management of external clinical communications to secure document exchange with investigators and contract research organisations.

CSC Life Sciences is a leading provider of EMC Documentum and Microsoft SharePoint-based regulated content management for the life science industry. CSC’s FirstDoc Document Management for Life Sciences Suite is one of the most heavily adopted Documentum-based applications worldwide for R&D, Clinical and Quality & Manufacturing. The company has developed FirstPoint for customers seeking sophisticated document management capability on the SharePoint platform.

innovoPOINT®, InnovoCommerce’s flagship clinical and investigator portal product, has been selected and adopted by nearly 50 percent of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. By leveraging the Microsoft SharePoint platform, InnovoCommerce provides customers the ability to take advantage of the innovation and ongoing investments that Microsoft continues to make in the enterprise collaboration and content management software.

Most of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies maintain heavy investments in Documentum-based infrastructure for regulated content management. Many of the pharmaceutical industry’s leading companies seek to leverage flexible SharePoint-based solutions for externally-focused clinical and investigator portals while maintaining and leveraging existing investments in Documentum including the CSC FirstDoc application. The CSC and InnovoCommerce alliance helps establish the foundation for an integrated clinical solution combining the electronic Trial Master File with the clinical portal to facilitate end to end content lifecycle management in the clinical trials process.

“We are very excited about the InnovoCommerce and CSC Life Science alliance,” stated Daniel O’Connor, Chief Executive Officer of InnovoCommerce. “The industry needs this type of creative approaches to solve technology challenges in the clinical space. By leveraging existing investments in both Documentum and Microsoft technologies, these two industry leaders have the ability to help customers truly move productivity forward in clinical operations.”

Daniel continued “by working toward a seamless FirstDoc and innovoPOINT integration we can provide the industry with an exciting and innovative approach to leveraging existing investments. Additionally, by introducing the option to integrate innovoPOINT with FirstPoint we can now have an integrated end-to-end clinical solution built entirely on top of the Microsoft stack as well facilitating content management, externalisation and electronic trial master files”
“Through this new partnership, we are helping ensure that the pharmaceutical industry can optimize its work flow with a robust clinical portal solution,” said Marty Magazollo, Software Solutions Group Practice Lead. “CSC’s and InnovoCommerce’s deep expertise in the life science field are a natural fit with the common goal of creating what the industry needs — a flexible and comprehensive clinical portal solution.”
