Description

Overview: The Cloud Computing / Software as a Service (SaaS) Webinar will present the best practices for the validation of a SaaS Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Solution.

Our presentation will offer an introduction to cloud computing and explain the benefits of using a SaaS system. We will detail the differences between a Conventional Implementation and a SaaS Implementation Methodology. A SaaS CRM system will be utilized as an example to discuss what drives SaaS system compliance and how requirements can be limited to Customer specific configurations. The scope of the validation effort will be explained and the elements of the Validation effort will be outlined. Change Management will also be discussed, with regards to how Vendor changes and customer configurations affect the validation and the testing that will be required to maintain a validated state.

Why should you attend: If cloud computing is so potentially important and valuable, why is it so feared? The biggest fear in regulated industries is maintaining a compliant system that is not fully controlled by the client, since the vendor is in possession of servers and software. Cloud computing is cheaper in the long run, but the quality of validation does not have to be affected by this price cut. Vendors can provide validated systems that can be configured by the client and the client can leverage the validation effort performed by the vendor, which will also provide a cost savings to the client. This webinar will dispel these fears and give you the confidence you need to maintain a validated cloud based system.

Areas Covered in the Session:

* The difference between the Conventional Implementation and a Saas Implementation Methodology
* When requirements can be limited to Customer specific configurations
* When the Customer specific configuration can be validated rather than the full system.
* When Vendor SOPs can be leveraged in place of developing all Customer SOPs
* The difference between a Full validation vs. an Abbreviated validation
* An introduction to cloud computing
* The benefits of using SaaS
* What Drives SaaS CRM System Compliance?
* Scope of Validation
* Elements of the Validation Protocol
* When Vendor Application Coding affects validation
* Change Management regarding Customer Configuration

Who Will Benefit: All IT professionals who have a need for compliant, regulated, cloud-based systems.
