Moving to the Cloud or migrating legacy applications to the Cloud is, obviously, much more involved in a GxP environment. There are many things to consider, but the primary consideration is to ensure your cloud environment is “under control” and you have the procedures in place to maintain the validated state of your applications.
These activities in a GxP environment require more rigor than a non-GxP environment.
That said, most organizations treat the Cloud like they treat an on-premise solution. In order to have an efficient, cost-effective and successful migration, it is important to evaluate and manage the risk throughout the process. Between the automated tools for the builds and the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) models, the environment is much different and must be treated as different.
VISTX has experience with these types of GxP Cloud Transformations and can help you identify the key areas, current gaps as well as assist you in making the best decisions for you.
Use of automated tools during the Build process is a good way to improve efficiency, but it also reduces the risk associated with the build. Reducing the risk reduces the amount of rigor required to Qualify the new component(s).
Qualification is meant to provide evidence that the infrastructure:
To accomplish this you should have the following:
Ensure your migration process
is under control during the Migration.
Once the Migration is complete, Validate your computer system to ensure it still works as intended inn the new environment. For more information on Computer System Validation, see our Validation page.
