Choose the right path to the cloud

If you are questioning whether the cloud can be validated for use in the context of GxP regulated applications, you’re not alone. There is still much uncertainty in the life sciences industry with regards to the use of cloud-based GxP regulated applications and cloud compliance due largely to a lack of regulatory guidance.  The cloud brings many benefits, such as rapid scalability, high availability and resource pooling, but also carries several challenges with regards to data security, shared responsibilities and change management.  Our team of cloud experts understand these challenges and have the experience to assist you in choosing the right path.

What our customers say about us

We bought the Montrium Azure Qualification Accelerator Pack in order to qualify our Navision Infrastructure in the cloud. Though, the process of moving to the cloud can be quite time consuming, Montrium’s documents helped us greatly reduce the transfer time. I don’t think the process could have been made in a reasonable timespan without Montrium’s templates. In addition, the documentation gave us a good guideline on how to design the Infrastructure setup to the qualification requirements.
