PAREXEL enhances its Regulatory Cloud; leverages EMC® Documentum® for Life Sciences software solution suite to offer an end-to-end regulatory solution

LONDON, 13th April, 2016 - PAREXEL International Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXL), a leading global biopharmaceutical services organisation, and EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced they have entered into an alliance to offer an end-to-end Regulatory Information Management (RIM) and Regulatory Content Management solution.

By combining PAREXEL® LIQUENT InSight® Regulatory Information Management platform and EMC® Documentum® for Life Sciences software solution suite, PAREXEL now provides life sciences companies with a complete solution for a product’s entire regulatory lifespan. Life science companies can utilise the solution for strategy and planning, authoring, publishing, submitting, viewing, archiving, and lifecycle management for a product. The offering is available through PAREXEL’s Regulatory Cloud, a life sciences content and regulatory information management solution structured within a dedicated, private cloud environment.

“A life sciences company must navigate the complex, global and region-specific regulatory landscape to maintain registration and compliance for a product,” said Paul Bidez, Ph.D., Vice President and Global Head of Regulatory Solutions, PAREXEL. “To help solve this challenge for our clients, PAREXEL and EMC brought together our respective industry-leading regulatory information management platform and industry-leading life sciences content management solution suite within PAREXEL’s Regulatory Cloud.”

PAREXEL’s Regulatory Cloud utilizes identity-based security that ensures that only authorised users can gain access to the infrastructure and application resources they require. Applications can be configured or integrated to meet client-specific requirements.

The EMC Documentum for Life Sciences software solution suite can eliminate companies’ data silos to transform how organisations access, manage and share information across nonclinical, clinical, quality and regulatory groups, ensuring a single, authoritative source for regulated content. The fully-integrated suite leverages industry standards and utilises easily configurable, intuitive, and personalised interfaces to maximise productivity and ensure easy access to information. This helps to bring high-quality and safer drugs to market faster, improving health and well-being, while lowering costs.

“Industry pressures are prompting biopharmaceutical organisations to adopt new business models, enter new global markets, and expand alliances and partnerships. To achieve these goals, Life Sciences organisations are becoming more strategic in how they manage information,” said Rohit Ghai, President, Enterprise Content Division, EMC. “By partnering with PAREXEL, we’re enabling these organisations to digitally transform and deliver high-quality, safer drugs to market faster and at a lower cost, while meeting regulatory requirements.”

Regulatory Cloud is offered by PAREXEL directly or through the Company's Perceptive® Partner Program.
