Life Science Whitepapers

Real-world evidence in the cloud

Life science companies are responding with Real World Evidence (RWE) to capture data from clinical through postmarket activities to prove drug products are efficacious, to maintain formulary preference, and to maximize reimbursement. In order to help customers build their own RWE platforms, this document contains reference architectures for data acquisition, data processing and data consumption using AWS Services.

Considerations for using AWS products in GxP systems

This whitepaper outlines the considerations organizations with GxP requirements should take when deploying systems in the AWS Cloud. Topics covered include suggestions for updating your quality system, how to incorporate the cloud into your system development life cycle, and how your regulatory affairs department should treat cloud-based applications.

How cloud HPC is reducing time to insights in pre-clinical research

This whitepaper outlines considerations for the use of cloud-based high performance computing when conducting pre-clinical biotechnology and pharmaceutical research.

Modernizing life science manufacturing

In this whitepaper, learn how life science manufacturing companies have built modern GxP compliant data platforms in the cloud, which allow them to achieve better trackability and traceability as well as glean insights from enhanced data analytics.

Cloud platforms for manufacturing and supplier management

This whitepaper outlines considerations for the use of the cloud to improve manufacturing and supplier management. Topics include how life sciences companies can bring more consistency, control and compliance when collaborating with their contract manufacturers and suppliers.

Data Lakes: How to glean new insights from existing data

This whitepaper outlines how properly managed, existing data from R&D, manufacturizing or commercialization in combination with new data sources can yield new insights through the creation of data lakes.

AWS and SAP: regulated workloads in the cloud

In this whitepaper, learn how life sciences companies are finding faster and simpler ways to move from on-premise hardware and get started with SAP HANA in the AWS cloud.

GxP in the AWS Cloud

Cloud-based regulated workloads can improve auditability, transparency, and consistency, as well as offer scalability, transparent costs, and a reduced need for on-premises hardware systems. In this whitepaper, you will learn about GxP in the AWS cloud and the compliance and efficiency benefits of rethinking regulated workloads.

Architecting for genomic security and compliance

This whitepaper focuses on common issues raised by Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers about security best practices for human genomic data and controlled access datasets, such as those from National Institutes of Health (NIH) repositories like Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) and genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Our intention is to provide you with helpful guidance that you can use to address common privacy and security requirements.

AWS genomics guide

This whitepaper focuses on common strategies and best practices used successfully by AWS customers for analyzing genomics sequencing data and associated medical datasets.
