Legacy System Replacement for Computer Systems Regulated by FDA


Please Choose Options to Checkout

Course Description

Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization.  During the past 30 years, best practices that have been developed will ensure that validation activities are cost-effective while meeting all aspects of FDA compliance.

The webinar will focus on the importance of carefully managing the replacement of a legacy system that is validated in accordance with FDA requirements to preserve the integrity of data associated with it.  You will learn about the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology, which supports Computer System Validation (CSV) in compliance with FDA guidelines.  The key phases and deliverable throughout this process of replacing the system and preserving the data will be discussed.

Our expert speaker, Carolyn Troiano will talk about the importance of determining how to preserve data, whether through migration, conversion, archival, or some combination of these, depending on the data retention period.  She will also talk about bringing closure to the legacy system, whether through methodically planned system retirement or maintaining it offline during the period within which FDA may request access to data associated with it.

You will learn about the key challenges that are typically faced, and the best industry practices for overcoming these.  We will also discuss a strategic approach that includes good project management and organizational change management principles that can be applied to ensure the transition is smooth.
