VaaS Other Validation Services

Our Software validation team will work with your business to create User, Functional and System design specifications all the way through the IQ/OQ/PQ, SOP development and the Validation summary. Our Validation strategy is based on a traditional IQ/OQ/PQ framework commensurate with risk. Validated Cloud’s Validation team is highly flexible to the needs of your organization. We provide computer system validation resources for a one-stop-shop.

With purchased commercial software or in-house developed applications, the user requirements need to be fully developed to map to the PQ. Purchasing a validation package from a vendor can only get you partially through the process. An experienced validation person will be able to navigate you through the process effectively and efficiently.

  • Purchasing validation packages and Validated Cloud will greatly reduce the time and effort to deployment.
  • User Requirement development and corresponding PQ development are critical bookends that need experienced personnel.
The installation and operational qualifications can be separate or combined documents. These take the form of IQ, OQ or IOQ. There are advantages to separating the IQ and OQ, but it does create some overhead for document maintenance. VaaS™ will help you develop the IQ, OQ or IOQ framework. Once the user requirements are completed, VaaS™ will help you develop the PQ for the application.
Validated application deployments, migrations and upgrades should have a Quality plan. VaaS™ will help you develop the Quality plan. The plan should include the roles, responsibilities, controls, managing deviations, expected outcomes and how risk is managed. A well-written Quality plan and subsequent execution of the plan will defend the validated state of your application upon deployment.

  • Quality plan encompasses roles, responsibilities, control and assurance activities.
  • VaaS™ will assist you to integrate the Validated Cloud document package into your Quality plan.
One of Validated Cloud’s biggest advantages is the robust and developed SOP framework to manage all aspects of the infrastructure, servers, databases and other service platforms. Each customer receives its own SOP as part of a deployment. The customer SOP can include the support of the application and data. VaaS™ will assist you with the SOP development to manage your application and data.
