Presented by Joe Jenkins at Documentation and Training Life Sciences, June 23-26, 2008.
Life Sciences companies are trying to cope with an information explosion. The amount of content and data within and outside of the average organization is growing exponentially, but the majority of it -- more than 90% -- is unstructured and residing in disparate repositories. This overload of disparate information makes it nearly impossible for employees, customers and business partners to find the content they need, let alone the correct version or representation of it. This session will describe how new and innovative solutions are being developed leveraging the power of XML and using products such as Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Office, and emerging Web 2.0 tools, to access and reuse content.
