Structured, XML-Based Authoring Made Easy

Whether in client meetings, conferences like DIA, or during participation in Gartner, Navitas, or Forrester special interest groups, there is always a buzz about Microsoft Word and the challenges it presents to structured content. In support of XML structured content authoring at the component level, there needs to be an integration with a tool to manage and modify content that doesn’t require any prior XML knowledge.

When managing content at the section level, it’s important to use the appropriate level of granularity. At Glemser, we manage components at the section level. For example, all labeling documents are comprised of sections like “Indications”, “Dosage and Administration”, “Contraindications” etc. These sections can represent a top-level section or a sub-section. In Glemser’s agency-neutral format, we create components for all these sections and manage properties for these components to provide more context to the entity that is stored in the system. These properties include the type of the section, section description, language, and product information, making it easy to search and re-use. These sections can contain any number of paragraphs, tables, lists, or images. This approach maintains the context associated with each component and allows for easy component use, reuse, management, and search.

To do this, we use a proven Microsoft Word plug-in. This allows users to interact with XML data via the Microsoft Word interface, not requiring any code or prior knowledge of XML. Not only is this easy to implement but the familiar interface requires little to no training. Glemser’s software partner, Quark, working alongside the experts at Frost & Sullivan recently published a white paper on this topic that does an excellent job of detailing this approach.
