SAP: Validation and
GMP Compliance

SAP: Validation and GMP Compliance (Live Online Training der ECA Academy)

SAP S/4HANA has been launched in 2015 as the New Intelligent ERP system. The software is available in both Cloud and Onprem edition. SAP S/4HANA is being called the biggest update to its ERP system in over two decades. Together with the shift to In-Memory database SAP HANA a new user interface (SAP Fiori) was introduced. One of the biggest changes is cloud deployment, parts of SAP Enterprise Architecture are now only available as public cloud software (e.g. SAPs Digital Manufacturing Cloud DMC). This has immense implications for deployment in the Life Sciences industry.
The mainstream maintenance for the predecessor products will end in 2027, and SAP has a strong presence in the Life Sciences industry with over 3800 customers. Owing to this timeline a lot of SAP customers have already started the transformation journey to SAP S/4HANA or at minimum have initiated a pre-project.
How will all these technical and functional changes in the surrounding of SAP S/4HANA (user interface, in-memory database, different deployment types) impact the validation approach and the validation scope?
This ECA Live Online Training will provide comprehensive knowledge about how to validate SAP S/4HANA for new SAP Life Sciences customers (for On-prem and Cloud deployments) as well as for installed base customers who are planning a system conversion. Expect two days full of shared best practices for the validation of SAP S/4HANA considering recent regulatory requirements like EU GMP Guide Annex 11, GAMP® 5, 2nd Edition and 21 CFR Part 11.

You will learn:

  • How to validate SAP S/4HANA in a GMP environment
  • Which specific requirements should be taken into consideration in the CSV process
  • What problems could arise during validation and how to solve them
  • How to maintain the validated state of SAP with the least efforts
