Some life sciences applications will need to be validated when they are moved to the Cloud. Legacy applications that you have already validated would maintain their validated state. But, often times when companies move applications to the Cloud, they add additional requirements and functionalities. USDM Life Sciences often helps companies move to a cloud based Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system and access their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in the field so sales staff can handle decision making, manage trunk stock and submit orders remotely. But, if you are moving data back and forth between your cloud based CRM and your ERP system, the data most likely needs to be maintained in a compliant manner.
Ultimately, whether an application must meet compliance requirements depends on the type of data you are using in the Cloud. For example, if you need to be able to track the activity of a medical device with GxP type of data, the application you are using needs to be validated.
