The Public cloud is changing everything for Pharmaceutical organizations. It is helping Life Sciences companies change the way drugs are developed and brought to market. Analysts estimate Pharmaceutical data is doubling every six months and the need for collaboration is ever growing. Pharmaceutical companies are realizing that their dependencies on legacy infrastructure is hindering their ability to compete.
Life Science and Pharmaceutical companies need to meet Compliance requirements such as GxP, GAMP, HIPAA etc. For adopting such workloads on public cloud, various industry bodies are recommending Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure as preferred providers due to the fact they have various industry certifications such as SOC1/SOC2, HIPAA, PCI, FEDRAMP, ISO 27001, etc.
The question is, can Pharma take advantage of this disruptive cloud technology? Pharma environments are very sensitive and need to be highly secure. There are legal requirements that have to be considered. Is Public Cloud the appropriate environment for Pharma?
