Philadelphia, PA and Cranford, NJ – September 14, 2009 - Distributed Compliance Solutions LLC ("DCS"), provider of turn-key compliance hosting solutions, and Paragon Solutions, a firm delivering information governance consulting and solutions, have announced a joint engagement providing comprehensive regulatory compliance for a global life sciences firm.

Paragon, with its deep experience and best practices in information governance and compliance, will use its migration planning, methodologies and toolsets to deliver a low-risk transition for this client. The engagement win represents the best of breed capabilities of the two companies to deploy low-risk, cost-effective compliance solutions.

"With DCS we were able to define our development needs and within five days we had a system to import sample content and software. This reduced our risk in the project plan around capital approvals and hardware installation at the customer site," noted Ravi Shankar, VP of Enterprise Content Management, Life Sciences.

Paragon will be leveraging DCS’ hosted environment on behalf of its client, who required a fully audited and secure hosting facility for prototype development using EMC Documentum Compliance Manager. Rather than risk the time delays and added costs of setting up the environment internally, Paragon can bring value to the client earlier.

DCS offers Paragon the ability to provide turn-key compliance environments for EMC Documentum Compliance Manager, Records Manager and Microsoft SharePoint applications. Paragon plans to use DCS’ hosting environments for clients in two scenarios: those requiring a validated, hosted system short-term during the migration and testing of prototype solutions or those needing longer-term outsourcing.

"Paragon has had great success in the migration and deployment arenas. We feel our hardened, certified hosting environment allow Paragon’s staff to focus on the customer and continue to deliver successful results. This at a time when economical, scalable and validated content management systems have become increasingly critical for regulatory compliance and business governance" stated John Nidelcheff, President, Distributed Compliance Solutions.

As with this engagement, Paragon/DCS clients will benefit with lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) and quicker return-on-investment (ROI) for compliance solutions focused on controlling content and protecting IP. Paragon’s core capabilities focus on the planning, design and implementation of compliance solutions. The client’s infrastructure set-up, testing and validation will be streamlined as a result of the relationship with DCS.
