Legacy System Migration
Instructor: Carolyn Troiano
Product ID: 500525

Computer system validation has been regulated by FDA for more than 30 years, as it relates to systems used in the manufacture, testing, distribution and management of a product in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, animal health, tobacco and other regulated industries.

Legacy system replacement often includes the retirement of a system, migration, conversion or archival of legacy data, implementation of a new system, a look at the business processes to assure they remain compliant, and a focus on managing organizational change and risk. These are all key activities that must be done in accordance with FDA guidelines. As such, there are specific deliverables and tasks that must be completed and appropriately documented.

There are best practices used in the FDA-regulated arena, and these can be leveraged to develop a standard and consistent approach within a company.

Why Should you Attend:
The attendee will learn how to develop a standard approach to planning, executing and documenting the replacement of a computer system in a manner that complies with FDA guidelines. Some people may be new to the concept of validation and FDA regulation, and will have to be coached on how to follow any necessary procedures required for compliance. This is often true for IT staff, and is likely to be the case in companies in the Tobacco industry, where regulations are emerging. It's important to look at what are some of the threats and challenges, and what methods you can use to mitigate these.

There is an enormous body of documentation and information available that can be overwhelming. This course will provide a condensed overview of the practices that deliver the best results by directing the attendees to the most critical and cost-effective techniques and tools available to assure compliance when managing activities related to replacing a legacy system.

Objectives of the Presentation:
The course will focus on the key aspects of legacy system replacement, including best practices and principles for handling this type of project work in an FDA-regulated environment (i.e., the system "touches" product during the manufacturing, testing or distribution of the product, or during any other functional activity). The material will include the various aspects of a typical legacy system replacement project, and the result will be a prescriptive approach to helping teams and individuals reach a higher level of compliance.

FDA guidelines are very specific in terms of how computer systems are to be managed, and each company should have a specific strategy and methodology, along with a set of rigorous tactical processes and procedures that prescribe how third-party participants in projects should be managed.

Who can Benefit:
Information technology analysts, project managers, organizational change managers, business process engineers, QC/QA managers and analysts, clinical data managers and scientists, analytical chemists, compliance managers, lab managers, automation analysts, computer system validation specialists, GxP training specialists, business stakeholders and individuals who are responsible for computer system validation planning, execution, testing, reporting, compliance, and audit. This webinar will also benefit any consultants, contractors or vendors providing products and services to the life sciences industries and who are involved in computer system implementation, validation and compliance.
