A Fortune 200 life science organization needed to convert six separate SAP instances into one GAMP 5 multi-country, multi-site, validated system with no disruption to on-going enterprise and with an aggressive timeline and cost allowances. The project also needed to be accomplished in alignment with the SAP International vision and thus harmonized into a single global instance.

  • Kymanox® partnered with our client to create a full SAP Computer System Validation (CSV) that incorporated the following:
  • Alignment with Annex 11 and GMP standards for the International SAP Environment
  • Assessment of Complexities from Legacy Systems and Data
  • Retainment of Legacy Custom SAP functionality
  • Development of New Functions
  • Harmonization with the client’s overall Global SAP Implementation Plan including disparate international sites, systems, and unique data elements.
