Morrisville, NC (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
d-Wise Technologies, a leading life sciences and healthcare technology solution provider, and SOA Software, a leading provider of API Management and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) governance products announced today that they have signed a formal partnership to provide services related to SOA Software’s Semantics Manager Product to life science organizations throughout the United States and Europe.
SOA Software’s Semantics Manager™ is a comprehensive metadata and standards management solution that companies use to effectively meet governance, regulatory and standards compliance (GRC) requirements for information model definition and management (e.g., in life sciences, finance etc.), while improving overall business efficiency. As a centralized standards-based repository, Semantics Manager provides a single source of governed content to enforce data standards, processes and policies while ensuring regulatory compliance and efficient data exchange both across the organization and externally with partners and regulators.
d-Wise is an industry leader in building data models to support clinical data warehousing, analytics, reporting, and FDA submissions in clinical research. Over the last decade d-Wise has delivered numerous implementations of life sciences technology while offering extensive knowledge of systems integration, implementation of clinical data standards, and business process optimization, governance and training.
Within clinical research, metadata should infuse every object that is managed determining how pieces of information are related and the processes around the clinical data workflow. With the advent of clinical data standards, metadata management has become all the more important and finding ways to better store, access, and manage metadata is regarded as a priority by most life sciences companies. “SOA Software’s Semantics Manager has many advanced features that make it ideal for supporting metadata management within a clinical context. We’re excited to be partnering with SOA Software to help deliver this solution in the life sciences, where we can leverage our extensive knowledge and experience with clinical systems, processes and data to deliver a centralized platform for semantic interoperability,” said Bud Whitmeyer, d-Wise’s CEO.
“Regulatory data submission guidelines, reporting mandates, internal business efficiency improvements and merger rationalization efforts are driving life science organizations to replace their existing manual management and implementation processes with fully interactive metadata governance platforms,” said Brent Carlson, VP of SOA Software. “The combination of SOA Software’s Semantics Manager and d-Wise’s recognized expertise in life sciences presents an unmatched value proposition to organizations making the transition to a modern semantics management infrastructure.”
SOA Software’s Semantics Manager is built on industry standards such as Object Management Group’s (OMG) Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) and ISO’s 11179 standard for Metadata registries. The base library includes all CDISC Terminologies, CDASH 1.1, SDTM 1.2, BRIDG 3.1, and ISO 21090, giving life science organizations a jumpstart towards aligning their internal information models with domain standards and regulatory requirements. As a centralized standards-based repository, Semantics Manager provides a single source of governed content to enforce data standards, processes and policies while ensuring regulatory compliance and efficient data exchange across the organization and with partners and regulators. Content can be easily found and reused via extensive in-built search mechanisms. Collaboration is built-in as well and is possible at any level - metadata, governance or at the repository level, with all actions tracked via a fully configurable audit trail that provides information about historical decisions and data lineage.
