INDUSTRY APPLICATIONS

Cloud Computing in Pharma

Meet the most stringent pharma regulations and requirements with software and deployment models from SAS.

Business Challenges

The life sciences industry is highly regulated, and for good reason. The development of safe and effective therapies is paramount, and the security of patient data must be protected. Life sciences organizations need to ensure that the software and deployment models they are using meet industry regulations.
