Are you interested in moving your data and servers on to the cloud?

IT cloud providers are readily accessible to manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.  Whether you are a start-up or a multinational, operating in the cloud can provide fast and flexible solutions that are scalable at a lower cost than working with a traditional setup.  As a manufacturer of pharmaceuticals/medical devices, regulators require you to take responsibility for the quality of all aspects of the product life cycle, and for Cloud Computing this means you need to assure compliance, security and data integrity.

  • You can’t expect your cloud supplier to know your business requirements in detail, so how do you control them?
