Using Office 365 for managing GxP processes is increasingly sought after by the life science community. In our recent webinar, 55% of attendees shared that they plan to manage regulated GxP content in Office 365 and SharePoint Online, and 24% already had the system in place.
Before the rise of cloud-based technologies, on-premise systems were not frequently updated, and there was a resistance to making changes as the validation effort was significant. And when changes like updates and patches were made, they were more substantial in scope and therefore riskier. With cloud-based services like Office 365, patches are regularly made by the Microsoft team to prevent risks of data breaches and create a more optimized user experience.
