For the past few decades, as we moved from paper-based content to electronic files, we have kept a clear distinction between documents and data, and the context in which this content was used. Data was managed in structured databases, analysed, then transferred manually, and documents were recreated over and over again and stored in eDM systems.
Today this separation is slowly disappearing as new technologies, such as XML, bring documents, data and other forms of information together in one melting point. This evolution is welcome and opens new perspectives in areas such as collaboration, reuse, review, analysis and records management. It also creates new challenges and pharmaceutical professionals will need to revise their view and practices and gradually move from traditional data and document management to information and content management.
DIA has always been in the forefront of new ideas and technologies and will once more offer a privileged forum for discussing, understanding and addressing the new challenges of information management.
