  • Veeva Vault PromoMats, 20R3.2+

Principles and Features

This integration is designed to support two main use cases:

  1. Content Approval - When new content has been created or existing content has been edited in AEM, the content must be approved for use in VVPM supporting the Medical, Legal, Regulatory (MLR) Approval process for Life Sciences.

  2. Content Management - Provide visibility of asset utilization by establishing relationships in PromoMats between digital tactics (e.g. email, presentations, websites) and their elements (e.g. logos, photography, graphics) created in AEM for documents originating in AEM.

The benefits include:

  • Maintaining a single source of truth for assets and content without duplication across digital repositories.
  • Leveraging both Veeva Vault for rights and compliance management and AEM for best in class and asset and content creation/delivery.
  • Helps automate moving content and metadata between AEM and Veeva Vault.
  • Reduces manual effort in sending content to Veeva for Approval workflows.
  • Each system is used for its strengths and the connector assists in moving content automatically between the systems to help speed up time to market.

What does the integration do?

  • Supports sending AEM Site Pages, Assets, Content Fragments, and Experience Fragments to VVPM. AEM Pages, Content Fragments, and Experience Fragments can be sent as screenshot PDFs or images. AEM Assets binaries are sent as is.
  • Supports manual and automated syncing of select metadata elements that are configurable from AEM to VVPM.
  • Supports manual and automated syncing of select metadata elements that are configurable from VVPM to AEM.
  • Supports relationships between AEM Site Pages, Assets, Content Fragments, and Experience Fragments in VVPM to automate content relationships.
  • Supports rendition generation for multiple device types.
NOTE

Please see integration usage documentation for further details on configuration options.

What does the connector NOT do?

  • Does not replicate AEM processes and functionality in Veeva or vice-versa.
  • Does not do MLR by itself. It assists in automation of sending content to Veeva to where MLR happens.
  • Not meant to be used to create an identical setup between AEM and Veeva. Not all content needs to move between the two platforms.
IMPORTANT

This integration currently considers AEM as the source of truth for content synchronization.
