GxP compliant application: Which is the right setup for an IoT logger and data logger cloud?
First and foremost, validation of the database, including the monitoring solution that will use an IoT logger and data logger cloud, must be done via computerized system validation (CSV).
CSV is a process that is documented and assures that a computerized system performs how it was meant to perform in a manner that is both consistent and can be reproduced at any moment.
What this means is that documentation of requirements must be done and validation writing of test plans must occur. Writing of the risk assessment after risk evaluation has occurred must be done. Testing of functionalities should be completed and documented in accordance with the test plan.
Finally, a report of validation is prepared, which shows all the efforts of validation that were used.
For users who do not mind validating the provider of the cloud infrastructure, nor managing the installation and maintenance of software on their own, PaaS or IaaS could be a good option.
On the other hand, for those who find difficulty doing this--or perhaps don’t have an experienced IT team at their disposal--SaaS would be the best choice.
This is because SaaS offers the advantage of having one provider of the solution instead of having a cloud infrastructure and software vendor separately for the IoT logger and data logger cloud.
