More and more companies are adopting cloud solutions and Microsoft Azure is an established name in that field. Microsoft states the next ‘Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications…’ [¹]. Azure supports public, private and hybrid cloud solutions, which means applications can run either entirely in the cloud, or partly in the cloud and partly on premise. The same goes for storage. Microsoft Azure has many years of experience and is used to working with partners, having combined their cloud solutions with SAP[²] and Oracle[³]. In addition, IFS applications also run on Azure[⁴].
QbD has the capacity and is proficient in assisting small, mid-sized and large enterprise in implementing Azure applications, whether it’s an IaaS, PaaS, SaaS or other computing solution and no matter the design the customer has or needs. In addition, QbD validates SAP and Oracle solutions in combination with Microsoft Azure, meeting the customer’s needs.
In order to realise and uphold a validated system running on Microsoft azure, the customer’s needs and knowledge, current legislation (e.g. FDA, national laws), relevant guidelines (e.g. GAMP5, GMP) and the supplier expertise are essential. Our synthesis approach enables customers to deploy their system rapidly, safely and consistently.
