Validation of
Cloud Computing Systems

Validation of Cloud Computing Systems

Cloud computing is certainly one of the most important current IT trends. Cloud providers promise up-to-date software at all times, dynamic adjustment of resources to current needs, and all this at unbeatably favourable conditions.

But is cloud computing really the miracle cure for all the problems that an IT department faces today, or is it just old wine in new bottles?

In a regulated environment, all computer-based systems used must be validated before they can be used productively. The infrastructure used must be qualified. The maintenance of the valid state must be ensured over the entire life cycle of the system. Of course, this also applies to applications in the cloud or applications that use cloud services.

In our webinar we would like to show you under which conditions cloud computing can be used in a regulated environment. You will learn how a validation of cloud applications differs from a “normal” software validation according to GAMP 5 and which pitfalls you have to expect in the individual phases of the system life cycle.
