IT/IM Infrastructure

CQV provides a risk based process for implementing an appropriate IT infrastructure (GAMP/ITIL) for supporting GXP compliant systems or replicated SOP’s… thereby reducing overall costs!

  • Qualify & Standardize Hardware/Software Configurations
  • Improve Performance
  • Implement effective SOP’s / Controls
  • Key Function Performance
  • Validate Security
  • Data Integrity
  • Reduce IQ Testing & Validation Cost

Network Qualification

The objective of the network qualification is to implement effective procedures and controls, catalog and verify engineering documentation, demonstrate key function performance, validate security and data integrity, and demonstrate compliance to applicable federal regulations.

CQV understands that a company must be compliant, but needs to keep their business running without overly restrictive procedures. We apply a common sense approach using risk analysis to determine where detailed procedures are needed, and where they are not. The IT environment is dynamic; and traditional qualification and validation practices are not easily applied.

It is CQV’s strategy to qualify configurations of hardware and software that will be procedurally replicated within our client’s network infrastructure and have an impact on systems that require computer system validation. The resulting IQ testing of procedurally replicated network components, based on qualified configurations, can then be reduced.

We can provide assistance with all aspects of the Network Qualification process including:

  • Project/Test Planning
  • Specification & Design
  • Implementation/Configuration
  • Risk Assessment & Test Planning
  • Qualification Protocol Development
  • Maintenance
  • Decommissioning
