Learn how to maintain GxP compliance in the Azure Cloud....



In today’s modern and connected world, we leverage cloud technology on a daily basis. Whether it’s syncing our email, interacting on social networks, or storing our photos, the cloud plays an increasingly big role in the way we manage our lives.

While it’s relatively simple to use cloud technology on a personal level, the pharmaceutical industry has found transitioning to cloud in a regulated environment much more challenging, despite the clear benefits. However, with cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure now offering competitive pricing and inherent scalability, the cloud is an even bigger part of boardroom discussions. Additionally, the cloud changes the way we need to think about the deployment, qualification, and management of computerized systems and underlying infrastructure in the cloud.

In this webinar—originally hosted by DIA—Microsoft Health and Montrium take you through the crucial steps that are required when developing a clear strategy framework for cloud compliance. We will discuss the common challenges at each step of the process and share our thoughts on what makes implementing cloud-based applications unique.
