Laboratory Informatics Guide 2020


for regulatory bodies by providing a robust validation package alongside good audit trails, allowing audit questions to be answered and resolved promptly and accurately. Te burden of managing system validation


can also be partially or wholly automated by a soſtware vendor, ensuring soſtware is validated against known outputs, and installation qualification (IQ) and operational qualification (OQ) scripts can be provided as part of a cloud- provider’s service, saving time and money.


Enhancing data security Although security is oſten the barrier preventing businesses adopting cloud soſtware, these concerns are frequently misplaced. An organisation’s data is oſten more secure in a cloud solution than on-premise. IT personnel will naturally be cautious


about moving information security outside of the enterprise walls, but mindsets are starting to change in R&D, and for good reason: cloud solution providers can oſten ensure a much higher level of security than standard enterprise IT infrastructure. Organisations working with cloud providers


(and ultimately their provider’s partners) are likely to benefit from best-in-class security arrangements at datacentres from some of the


most trusted names in world business, such as Amazon. Such robust – and expensive – security provisions are out of reach for most organisations choosing to host their data in-house. With traditional database soſtware, the


process of backing up data on a weekly basis can be laborious. Cloud solutions can eradicate this painstaking, essential task, scheduling automatic backups without user intervention and ensuring integrity and security of your data. Current best practice for soſtware as a


service (SaaS) data infrastructures is to have two separate geographical locations that identically store and mirror your data. In the incredibly unlikely event that a disaster occurs in one of the centres, the other datacentre can continue delivering the SaaS service without interruption or loss of data. Very few organisations can do this on-premise.


Reducing the strain on IT teams With a cloud solution, upgrades and the global infrastructure that runs the cloud can be looked aſter by a partner and their web services provider, shiſting the burden from IT teams. Neither users nor IT departments have


to worry about maintenance of hardware, or which operating system version supports


which databases. And organisations don’t need to invest further in costly on-premise infrastructure. All initial investment on licenses, hardware, databases and IT specialists are managed externally. Te most complicated thing IT teams have to look aſter is oſten just ‘passwords’!


Thinking about the bigger picture Te price of bringing new drugs to market has increased in recent years, with estimates putting the cost as high as $1bn. In this kind of landscape, it’s only natural for R&D laboratories to turn to new laboratory informatics technologies, as they look to curb spending and bring important new drugs to market, faster. But reducing costs should never need


to mean ‘cutting corners’, especially if an organisation is looking to implement a GxP solution. Te cloud can provide a secure, online platform, which complies with regulations and can be up and running quicker than a traditional on-premise environment. Te many benefits of the cloud combine to


make a real, tangible difference for businesses – and with organisations investing in more technology, the cost of getting that investment right, and reducing time to value, can be truly transformative. n
