CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NextDocs, a leading provider of regulated content management and compliance solutions for the life sciences industry, publicly released a report today providing detailed benchmarks on the scalability and performance of its regulated compliance solutions. The company is publishing the benchmark data to establish a new set of standards on which life sciences companies can rely when evaluating these mission critical systems.
"Global life sciences companies need their regulated content and compliance management systems to be highly scalable, highly reliable and high performing. NextDocs made significant investments to meet the technical and operational demands of these companies," said Zikria Syed, Chief Executive Officer of NextDocs. "This testing not only validates the capabilities of the NextDocs 6 solution, it also gives our customers the highest confidence that our solutions will meet and exceed their most stringent requirements."
With more than 100 life sciences companies already relying on NextDocs solutions, including 5 of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies and three of the largest Clinical Research Organizations (CROs), NextDocs plays a critical role in setting industry standards.
Scalability and performance are critical to the success of enterprise technology deployments. However, when it comes to regulated compliance systems, there had been little comparative information publicly available. Thus, companies are often in the dark on what constitutes best-in-class capabilities. By releasing the industry's first scalability and performance benchmarks for regulated compliance solutions, NextDocs hopes to educate companies on system performance and elevate standards in the industry.
The resulting report, SOP Scalability in Life Sciences, goes beyond previously published benchmarks. Those older tests focused on document read and write, browsing and downloading performance – actions not specific to compliance scenarios. The newly released report includes data for compliance-specific actions including PDF rendering, workflows, approvals and content indexing.
The benchmark data is derived from lab testing of real-world deployments and real-world compliance scenarios. NextDocs partnered with Microsoft to conduct the testing in the Microsoft Life Sciences Lab and utilized only customer-provided scenarios.
The report is the first in a series which NextDocs will publish, each benchmarking industry solutions, processes and performance metrics. The SOP Scalability in Life Sciences report is available for download at www.nextdocs.com.
"NextDocs will continue to publish benchmark data that pushes the envelope in the life sciences industry. We think our customers and the industry will benefit immensely from greater transparency and more comprehensive benchmark data, " concluded Zikria Syed.
