ConceptShare Inc., the leader in online proofing and approvals, has announced its integration with popular project management system, JIRA® Software. This integration helps creative and marketing teams deliver more approved marketing content faster, and at less cost. JIRA® Software has been widely adopted by creative and marketing teams to manage tasks and activities. Review & approval of assets, however, typically happens outside of JIRA® Software - in email chains or face-face meetings. These inefficient external feedback processes create significant delays in marketing campaign execution. ConceptShare’s proofing and approvals add-on for JIRA® Software allows creative and marketing teams to execute their Review and Approval workflows from within JIRA® Software, so they can deliver content for marketing campaigns faster. Feedback and approval requests can be created, tracked, and managed in JIRA® Software, while project managers and external stakeholders can provide feedback on content using ConceptShare. ConceptShare’s powerful online proofing tools bring context to feedback and make change requests clear and actionable. ConceptShare CEO, Nish Patel, explains the company’s motivation for building the integration. “Creative Operations teams need job specific tools that are integrated so their work can be organized, tracked and sped up across the entire creative production process. The ConceptShare integration for JIRA gives marketing and creative teams the opportunity to close a gap and recapture wasted time, budget, and capacity. Other integrations will be announced in the coming months as we continue our rollout of add-ons for popular tools.” The add-on is now available on the Atlassian® Marketplace and is free to use for JIRA® Software & ConceptShare customers. JIRA® Software customers can learn more and get started with a 30 day trial of ConceptShare at http://www.conceptshare.com/jira ConceptShare is a leader in Creative Operations Management and Founder of the Creative Operations Summit.

VICTORIA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:AUPH / TSX:AUP) (“Aurinia” or the “Company”), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the global immunology market, today announced the appointment of George M. Milne, Jr., Ph.D. to its board of directors. Prior to his retirement, Dr. Milne served as Executive Vice President of Global Research and Development and President of Worldwide Strategic and Operations Management at Pfizer. Dr. Milne serves on multiple corporate boards including Charles River Laboratories where he is the lead director and Amylyx Pharmaceuticals and is Venture Partner at Radius Ventures. “George has made significant contributions to the pharmaceutical sector during his successful career. His experience in the board room will prove extremely valuable as we approach the next crucial stage of development as a company working to advance voclosporin to market while exploring potential additional indications for the compound,” said Richard M. Glickman, Chief Executive Officer of Aurinia. Dr. Milne has over 30 years of experience in pharmaceutical research and product development. He joined Pfizer in 1970 and held a variety of positions conducting both chemistry and pharmacology research. Dr. Milne became director of the department of immunology and infectious diseases at Pfizer in 1981, was its executive director from 1984 to 1985, and was vice president of research and development from 1985 to 1988. He was appointed senior vice president in 1988. In 1993 he was appointed President of Pfizer Central Research and a senior vice president of Pfizer with global responsibility for human and veterinary medicine R&D. Dr. Milne has served on multiple corporate boards including Mettler-Toledo, Inc., MedImmune, Athersys, Biostorage Technologies, Aspreva, and Conor Medsystems. Dr. Milne received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from Yale University and his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from MIT. "Aurinia has demonstrated its leadership in advancing a viable treatment option for patients suffering from lupus nephritis,” added George Milne. “I look forward to working alongside this exceptional team and sharing my expertise as we pursue a successful future for the company.” Additionally, the company announced that Dr. Greg Ayers has resigned from Aurinia’s board of directors, effective immediately. “On behalf of the board of directors, I thank Greg for his service and contributions and wish him well in future endeavors," added Dr. Glickman. Voclosporin, an investigational drug, is a novel and potentially best-in-class calcineurin inhibitor (“CNI”) with clinical trial data in over 2,200 patients across indications. Voclosporin is an immunosuppressant, with a synergistic and dual mechanism of action that has the potential to improve near- and long-term outcomes in LN when added to standard of care (MMF). By inhibiting calcineurin, voclosporin blocks IL-2 expression and T-cell mediated immune responses. Voclosporin is made by a modification of a single amino acid of the cyclosporine molecule which results in a more predictable pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic relationship with potential for flat dosing. In addition, Voclosporin is more potent than and has an improved metabolic profile versus cyclosporine. Aurinia anticipates that upon regulatory approval, patent protection for voclosporin will be extended in the United States and certain other major markets, including Europe and Japan, until at least October 2027 under the Hatch-Waxman Act and comparable laws in other countries. LN, an inflammation of the kidney caused by Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (“SLE”), represents a serious progression of SLE. SLE is a chronic, complex and often disabling disorder that affects more than 500,000 people in the United States (mostly women). The disease is highly heterogeneous, affecting a wide range of organs & tissue systems. It is estimated that as many as 60% of all SLE patients have clinical LN requiring treatment. Unlike SLE, LN has a strong surrogate marker, proteinuria, which correlates with meaningful longer term clinical outcome. In patients with LN, renal damage results in proteinuria and/or hematuria and a decrease in renal function as evidenced by reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and increased serum creatinine levels. LN is debilitating and costly and if poorly controlled, LN can lead to permanent and irreversible tissue damage within the kidney, resulting in end-stage renal disease (ESRD), thus making LN a serious and potentially life-threatening condition. Aurinia is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapies to treat targeted patient populations that are suffering from serious diseases with a high unmet medical need. Aurinia is currently developing voclosporin, an investigational drug, for the treatment of LN. Aurinia is headquartered in Victoria, BC and focuses its development efforts globally. www.auriniapharma.com. This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements related to Aurinia’s plans to advance voclosporin to market and explore additional indications for the compound, Dr. Milne’s expected impact on Aurinia’s progress, the belief that voclosporin is a potentially best-in-class CNI and a viable treatment option for patients suffering from LN with potential to improve near- and long-term outcomes in LN, and the belief that upon regulatory approval, patent protection for voclosporin will be extended in the United States and certain other major markets, including Europe and Japan, until at least October 2027. It is possible that such results or conclusions may change based on further analyses of these data. Words such as "plans," "intends," “may,” "will," "believe," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon Aurinia’s current expectations. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. Aurinia’s actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties, which include, without limitation, the risk that Aurinia’s analyses, assessment and conclusions of the results of its clinical studies may change based on further analyses, the risk that Aurinia will not successfully complete its clinical programs and the risk that Aurinia’s clinical studies for voclosporin may not lead to regulatory approval. These and other risk factors are discussed under "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in Aurinia’s Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed with Canadian securities authorities and available at www.sedar.com and on Form 40-F with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov, each as updated by subsequent filings, including filings on Form 6-K.

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Knowledge 17--ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW) today announced major enhancements to its Cloud Management application. Employees are demanding fast access to cloud resources that meet their needs. IT is left with the challenge of quickly responding to these requests while reducing risks and managing costs. ServiceNow® Cloud Management gives both cloud users and IT increased control over cloud resources. Within minutes, IT can rapidly create a catalog of cloud resources across AWS, Azure, VMware and others. Users get a consumer-like self-service experience where they can manage their cloud resources and track their spending from any device so that they get the most out of their budgets. Now, businesses can take full advantage of all the benefits the cloud has to offer to make their work go faster. With more organizations choosing cloud-first for new business applications, companies must manage cloud services across multiple public and private clouds to reduce risk and ensure compliance to company policies. In many companies, the manual processes used to deploy and manage cloud services can take days or weeks to complete. Once the services are available, end users are disconnected from lifecycle operations and must rely on help desk interactions to get their jobs done. This process can be slow and delay end users from completing their tasks or worse yet, force users into going it on their own with the swipe of a credit card. This DIY approach of acquiring the cloud services they need puts the user outside the control of IT, thus creating shadow IT problems. “As more enterprises go cloud-first for their new business applications, they need cloud resources that are enterprise grade, enforcing consistent governance and control regardless of the underlying cloud provider,” said Pablo Stern, general manager, IT Operations Management, ServiceNow. “With our Cloud Management, employees get the freedom to conveniently access cloud resources and IT the power to stay in control.” Cloud Management features a new Cloud Agnostic Blueprint Designer reducing the hours of work it takes to create and deploy cloud services. By abstracting the different elements of the creation workflow, ServiceNow simplifies the design of cloud services by auto-generating an execution plan that brings together all the up-to-date elements of the blueprint, and automatically generates corresponding service catalog items. Governance (e.g. approvals, quotas, permissions) and compliance (e.g. data center selection, security settings) policies are defined independently and applied at run-time. Now, a developer who wants to test their code on a multi-tier test environment can accomplish this task with a simple click of a button. All this is done while maintaining adherence to corporate policies, governance, and security controls. Also, since these blueprints are not tied to a single cloud account or provider, organizations have increased flexibility in their choice of cloud providers. Cloud Management gives end users a new Cloud User Portal experience built on ServiceNow Service Portal technology. With the Cloud User Portal, end users have a single-pane of glass to manage both business and operational aspects of their cloud resources through the Now Platform. From a central location, the user can easily access their personalized service catalog to launch new services, manage the lifecycle operations of stacks or individual resources and manage the consumption against costs, usage and quotas. Now companies can curb shadow IT by empowering end-users with direct control of their cloud resources through a consumer-like experience while maintaining IT governance and control. In addition, with Cloud Management on the Now Platform™, organizations have a single-system-of-record for all cloud resources and seamless integration with incident, problem, and change management, automatically routing issues and requests through the standard IT processes. As cloud usage increases exponentially, Cloud Management enables your business to scale. "As a managed service provider focused on helping our clients achieve digital transformation, it is imperative that we deliver a unified view of our client’s cloud resources with the flexibility, transparency and the control they need,” said Michael Kollar, Chief Digital Officer and Global Head of Cloud Engineering for Atos. “The ServiceNow platform enables us to quickly deliver those services in both a secure and enterprise-compliant manner.” For more information, go to this Community blog. ServiceNow Cloud Management will be available in the third quarter of 2017. Your enterprise needs to move faster, but lack of process and legacy tools hold you back. Every day, thousands of customer requests, IT incidents, and HR cases follow their own paths—moving back and forth between people, machines and departments. Unstructured. Undocumented. Unimproved for years. With the ServiceNow® System of Action™ you can replace these unstructured work patterns of the past with intelligent workflows of the future. Now every employee, customer and machine can make requests on a single cloud platform. Every department working on these requests can assign and prioritize, collaborate, get down to root cause issues, gain real-time insights and drive to action. Your employees are energized. Your service levels improve. And you realize game-changing economics. Work at Lightspeed™. To find out how, visit www.servicenow.com. © 2017 ServiceNow, Inc. All rights reserved.
