Validation of SAP S/4HANA on-premise and Private Cloud Edition

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by DHC (in German language).

SAP offers its ERP system S/4HANA both on-premise and as a cloud solution. Since all computer-based systems used in the life sciences have to be validated, all ERP systems were previously operated by the companies themselves (even if they were installed at a hosting service provider). From SAP’s cloud portfolio, the Private Cloud Edition for Life Sciences is an alternative to the on-premise version. The webinar looks at the differences between the two S/4HANA alternatives from the perspective of CSV (Computerised System Validation).

Self Services with SAP Fiori in the Life Sciences Industry

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by OSC (in German language).

Mobile working and the changed way of working in increasingly decentralised teams clearly show the potential behind the digitalisation of processes. The focus is often on HR processes, so-called Employee and Management Self Services (ESS/MSS). Today, SAP already provides a variety of standard services to better integrate employees into life sciences business processes and to create added value for employees. 

We presented the most common ESS and MSS scenarios in SAP and showed you which opportunities are offered by the digitalisation of these processes and which mistakes should be avoided.

Access, Visitor and Evacuation Management in the Life Sciences Industry

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by our partner OSC (in German language).

Efficient access control is essential for companies in the medical technology and pharmaceutical industries. The boundaries between classic access control and security and safety requirements in companies are becoming increasingly blurred.

The current challenge is, for example, the linking of existing access authorisations with additional properties or qualifications that also expire over time (example: vaccination certificate or forklift licence). Only after various parameters have been checked will access or the start of the forklift truck be authorised. During the webinar, OSC will present an automated software solution to the participants, which restructures, regulates and controls the presence of employees, external companies and visitors in the company in a data protection compliant manner. In addition to SAP, many other software systems can be connected. Autonomous operation is also possible. The webinar will be rounded off with examples of current trends and new developments in access, evacuation and visitor management.

Protect SAP data exports against cyber attacks and along the digital supply chain

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by our partner SECUDE (in German language).

The current almost daily news about cyber attacks show that companies can never completely secure their IT perimeters. Due to their special data protection and security requirements, life sciences companies in particular need effective measures in case attackers were able to penetrate their IT systems. The idea is to prevent cyber attacks by ensuring that no data can leave the systems that can be used beyond the company’s own IT security perimeter. This means controlling and automatically encrypting all data exports from company applications such as SAP. In order to be able to work securely with the exported data afterwards, a Digital Rights Management (DRM) platform such as Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) is needed.

In this web session, our partner SECUDE showed you how to protect SAP downloads, exported bills of materials (BoM) and other document data extracted from SAP automatically with MIP, while fully preserving process efficiency. With the help of the “Data Protector for SAP”, the security profile of the exported SAP data is automatically transferred to the appropriate MIP “label”. This means that only authorised users have access to this data, even if it has to leave the SAP system or be used along the digital supply chain. Conversely, it means that hackers can capture this data but cannot use it because of the MIP data encryption.

Unique Device Identification: Implementing global requirements with the right strategy and software

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by DHC and p36 (in German language).

The Unique Device Identification (UDI) system for medical devices is already applicable in the United States, South Korea as well as China and is increasingly becoming a global challenge for medical device manufacturers due to the EU MDR / IVDR, among other things.
Many other countries, for example Saudi Arabia and Australia, will also introduce their own UDI regulations in the foreseeable future. Among other things, the regulatory requirements include the submission of UDI data to UDI databases, for example GUDID in the USA and EUDAMED in Europe. Over time, the effort to meet the requirements of different regulatory authorities and to be able to send product master data to UDI databases worldwide will become increasingly higher and more complex for medical device manufacturers who are active in several markets. Due to the number of products, this will no longer be manually manageable.
In order to be able to handle future requirements and changes to existing regulations, efficient and above all flexible software solutions are required.

Learn how to efficiently implement data preparation for various regulatory authorities and thus achieve global UDI compliance with the help of a live demo using the UDI Platform from our partner company p36 as an example.

SAP Security Audit for the security of your system

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by OSC (in German language). 

The current threats and attacks on IT and infrastructure in companies have long ceased to be an abstract danger. Every day, security incidents occur that can seriously affect a company. SAP systems are often the focus of attacks from inside and outside the company. For intruders, there are a multitude of attack points. Effective protection is therefore almost impossible without technical aids. Security does not have to be expensive. Our security packages allow you to quickly, flexibly and cost-effectively analyze your SAP security in the most important areas. This includes e.g. database security, the check of your source code in in-house developments, your implemented authorization concepts as well as many other system parameters.

Digital Supply Chain – Smart solutions for logistics

A web session of the Life Sciences Alliance, hosted by All for One (in German Language). 

Hardly any area of business processes offers more potential for digitalization. From goods procurement to production to goods issue, we will use concrete examples to show you how “connected logistics” can be used in conjunction with SAP S/4HANA to improve processes, simplify workflows or increase process quality. 

The use of “smart solutions”, such as RFID tags, data glasses or even AI-based technologies, along the supply chain offers great digitalization potential. We will show you which concrete possibilities and usage scenarios there are in the processes of the pharmaceutical industry or medical technology using practical examples. These solution examples come from a wide range of process areas – from incoming goods, quality management, production or production logistics to shipping.
