Google Cloud Platform for life sciences

Achieve continuous compliance with your regulated workloads on Google Cloud

The Google Cloud has the technology to bring your ideas to life. Whether your business is early in its journey or well on its way to digitalizing your IT systems and developing your own applications, Google Cloud has the compute engines, storage capacity, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and database solutions to help you with your next breakthrough idea.

USDM has an Agile Compliance framework that fits right into your DevOps processes to capture quality artifacts as they are created and cover end-to-end continuous compliance of your technology. With USDM’s Cloud AssuranceTM solution, you can transform your regulated operations from a bottleneck to innovation by beginning with compliance and automating Software Quality Assurance (SQA) into your IaaS, PaaS, SaaS—and anything your DevOps can imagine.

Cloud Assurance Certified

 

As a Cloud Assurance Certified technology choice, life sciences companies can trust that Google Cloud prioritizes compliance and is the best choice to comply with global regulatory requirements. 

USDM performed an independent, qualified third-party audit of Google Cloud services that included the design, development, testing, qualification, and maintenance methodologies of Google Cloud Infrastructure. USDM’s vendor audit addressed these leverageable items, including (but not limited to) the vendor’s quality system framework, software development methodology, and software qualification processes and artifacts. The audit also dove deeper into the vendor’s configuration management, documentation, records management, security, training, and education. It provides an overview of the quality management system (QMS) with respect to system development, system configuration, implementation, and ongoing support.

The audit results are compiled into a comprehensive Google Vendor Assurance Report that summarizes the audit, cites all source material reviewed during the audit activities, and links to all publicly available content. If you are interested in a copy of the USDM’s Vendor Assurance Report for Google Cloud, fill out this form to request a copy.

You can also leverage USDM’s comprehensive annual vendor audit to confirm the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and ensure your cloud infrastructure is secure, available, continuously monitored, maintained, and supported. From your infrastructure to data centers to the platform services and business applications that power your enterprise, Google Cloud and USDM ensure your operation remains secure and continuously compliant with FDA and global regulations.
