distributed tracing

Microservice architectures are often a graph of components distributed across a network. This architecture gives rise to a new problem. How can we trace and bind together all services involved in one operation request? When a client calls an operation, it can be spread across different services over the network, each service has its own context.

html5_web_applications

Most DMS platforms like Documentum and SharePoint have their out-of-the-box full clients which are meant to provide all (or most of all) of the platform functionality. Although these full clients can, normally, get customized or configured, they are, however, complex and slow to adopt new technologies.
If you have a specific use case, why start from a complex system and reduce it to your needs? Why not build a custom client that is streamlined and focus on your use case instead? The business logic can reside on the server. But for the client, we are free to use any state-of-the-art modern web framework.
HTML5 (CSS and JavaScript) has revolutionized the web client interface with a lot of new powerful functionalities. Nowadays there are many good frameworks and tools that allow us to rapidly build robust and reliable systems with a rich user interface, that looks like a native App – even with their own storage area on the local device.

student at fme

Monday morning, for some this is the agonizing beginning of the week and the work stress, for me this is the time of anticipation until I’m back at the fme office. Because when I go to the office in the morning; I’m already expected with a sweet smile and a “Hah, good that you’re there!”. For one or the other, these words may already scare the ToDo list. I, on the other hand, wonder what will happen this week…

So while I’m still thinking about all the adventures, I move slowly in the direction of the computer and again need tens of starts to type in the password correctly. After successfully completing the mission, I discuss today’s daily routine with my colleague. Once this is done, it goes to the preserves.

automation is essential for your business

With so many applications/systems to keep an eye on, nowadays, it often takes IT staff too much time to perform repeated manual tasks. This is valuable time we then lack in communicating with stake holders, key users and operational departments or solving other problems.

It’s often easy to say: “I’ll just do this manually because it only takes me half an hour a week

Redlining_Documentum

In the regulated life sciences environment, the management of controlled documents such as SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), procedural instructions or work instructions is of great importance. Change management processes ensure that these documents are properly reviewed, approved, trained, distributed and, if necessary, overruled. In addition to well-known use cases within change management, there are special cases that are designed differently from company to company.

One of these applications is so-called Redlining [1].

Do you know these sentences, which simply belong to every job description?

Meet the Challenge – Introducing Cloud Computing in GxP environments

Introduction

It is a challenging time for many traditional pharmaceutical companies. The competiveness of the market place, the looming loss of patents, ever-increasing international regulatory requirements and pressure to lower the overall cost for healthcare – they all increase the burden and force these companies to find new approaches in order to survive in the industry.

Pharmaceutical companies are today driven to adopt strategies for reducing resources and costs, circumstances that have been tangible in other manufacturing sectors for some time. The expectation from IT departments is that they should support the business challenges and deliver cost-effective solutions without compromising quality, compliance, agility or flexibility.

Cloud computing seems to fulfil the promises of solving these business challenges and life sciences firms increasingly look to it for the universal remedy. However, how well does cloud computing coexist with GxP compliance and regulated environments?
