In our last “cloud fact or fiction” post, we identified several reasons why hosting clinical and pharmacovigilance systems is just as safe as housing them on-premises. In fact, in many cases it could prove to be safer. This week we’ll briefly discuss migrating data to the cloud.
Last time, we concluded that the costs associated with hosting clinical trial software in the cloud can actually be less than for on-site solutions. In this post, we’ll tackle access to data and system uptime. Claim #4: Clinical or safety data stored in the cloud can be accessed at any time. Fact or fiction? Fact. […]
In our last “cloud fact or fiction” post, we discussed the cost of implementing clinical trial software in the cloud. This time around we’ll address the ongoing costs you can expect to see if you decide that hosting your applications in the cloud is the way to go. Claim #3: Ongoing costs for cloud/hosted clinical […]
The other day, I was watching Cory Johnson interview Bryson Koehler, CTO and CIO of The Weather Company, on Bloomberg West. While the talk focused on The Weather Company’s business model, I thought several points during the discussion were quite relevant to life sciences companies. Frankly, they’re applicable to most industries. The Weather Channel, which […]
A couple of weeks ago, a client of ours discovered a problem in the production (PROD) environment of one of their clinical systems. In the initial system implementation, they had opted for a single environment (without a sandbox, development, training, test, or validation environment), so they found themselves with no separate environment in which to […]
Anyone evaluating clinical trial, clinical data, and safety management systems today will also need to decide whether to implement on-site or in the cloud. As each year passes, more and more companies are choosing the cloud for a whole host (pun intended!) of reasons. Over the next few weeks, my colleagues and I will examine […]
