Time and Cost Savings with Cloud Assurance Automation

Time and Cost Savings with Cloud Assurance Automation

Explore the advantages of automating workflows and testing for your regulated GxP systems.

In the ever-evolving life sciences industry, new technologies are helping startup companies and established global organizations redefine business workflows and achieve transformative outcomes. Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supports using automation—with the Computer Software Assurance (CSA) methodology in particular—to help life sciences companies bring drugs and medical devices to market faster and more efficiently.

To that end, USDM Cloud Assurance aims to deliver unparalleled regulatory compliance with automation built in. It starts by unburdening your organization of initial validation and ongoing compliance maintenance. Then, as your GxP tech stack grows, automated workflows and testing help to support your business goals. Cloud Assurance ensures end-to-end continuous compliance and increases the use and ROI of the GxP technology you already own.

Consider the Time and Cost Savings for Your Teams

Automated and ongoing software testing helps ensure that your regulated systems remain in a state of compliance—no matter how frequently vendors release updates, changes, and patches.

To simplify release management and enable your organization to perform consistent testing, Cloud Assurance automates testing activities for your cloud computing systems and supports full-suite regression testing. Automation also controls installation, configuration, and management, which translates to substantial time savings and effective cloud management practices.

For example, when using automation, there’s no need to wait for one process to finish before testing another; several processes can run concurrently and unattended. When cloud application vendors frequently release changes, ongoing automated testing helps ensure that regulated systems remain in a state of compliance.

Clarify the Complex with the Cloud Assurance Dx

Measuring, monitoring, and managing the compliant state of your cloud-based GxP systems requires maximum transparency and clear communication between you, your service partner, and technology vendors. That’s where the Cloud Assurance Digital Experience (Dx) web application comes in.

Using the Dx, you’re able to: 

  • Have 24/7 access to your dashboard whether you’re in the office, working remotely, or on the road. 
  • Get real-time compliance status in one dashboard for your managed applications or technology. 
  • Receive notifications and alerts (SMS, email, or other integrations) with action-specific messages in real-time wherever you are. 
  • Download from one place documents that support and defend validation and continuous compliance (i.e., vendor audits, release assessments, and validation-related artifacts). 
  • Access automated testing results, summaries, and schedules for regression testing for each supported application. 
  • Message the USDM team of experts within the context of the application. 
  • Request, track, and close change and enhancement requests for your applications. 
  • Access exclusive thought-leadership content applicable to technology and compliance. 
  • Engage in an online community of subject matter experts (SMEs) and industry peers to get your questions answered quickly.
