Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) are increasing in adoption among life sciences companies. These systems deliver key functionality that drive competitiveness, supply chain operational efficiency and sustained compliance. As innovations such as mobility, the Internet of Things (IoT) and business intelligence drive the demand for these systems several challenges and the need for accelerated implementation and deployment have caused many to rethink their strategies for the validation and verification of these systems.
The principles of validation endure - even in the cloud. There is sometimes a mis-perception that cloud-based systems do not require validation. This is not the case. Issues concerning cybersecurity, data integrity, legally defensible electronic records and signatures, agile software development and increasing compliance mandates require companies to rethink how these systems are implemented, deployed and validated.
The business case for cloud-based ERP systems includes rapid deployment and the outsourcing of technology infrastructure to support business agility. Computer systems validation processes can sometimes be viewed as an impediment to these benefits due to inefficient, time-consuming, paper-based manual validation processes.
