Tempe, Ariz. (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Isos Technology, an Atlassian Expert and leader in enterprise software development, IT recruiting and agile consulting services, announced today two new agreements with leading pharmaceutical firms. Both agreements call for Isos to customize Atlassian JIRA and Confluence applications to help automate, track and simplify the release management process on regulated applications, as well as simplify compliance reporting. Isos will also use its proprietary Click2Clone solution to ensure a seamless migration process throughout the development process.
Due to the increasingly tight controls around compliance, pharmaceutical firms continue to seek more efficient ways to track, document and report on code changes in regulated applications such as those developed for managing samples and inventory. Such applications and electronic signatures associated with application development and workflows are subject to stringent regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), PCI, HIPPA and Title 21 CFR Part 11, in addition to related audits.
“The pharmaceutical industry is in a state of flux, and the increasing regulations are making their job even more challenging,” commented Thad West, CEO of Isos Technology. “Many firms are using manual tools for release management and compliance reporting, making the job time-consuming and very difficult to track – in turn making regulatory audits a nightmare. This Atlassian-based custom solution not only optimizes workflows and fully integrates the entire software development lifecycle, it also automates e-Signature signoffs and provides complete and accurate release documentation.”
The new solution is designed to fit each firm’s unique applications, workflows, compliance requirements and release management processes, giving them tight controls over software development and code, as well as an easy way to generate artifact trails for reporting and audits. The custom solution leverages Atlassian Git Essentials, which combines JIRA with Git repository management to create a seamless, integrated development workflow. Isos also developed a custom integration between Confluence and JIRA so documentation becomes locked and code is frozen once an electronic signature is captured. This helps the company standardize an important system of checks and balances throughout the development process.
Isos will provide a complete, end-to-end solution for both firms, including discovery, solution design, implementation, testing and ongoing support plus enhancements. Isos will also train users in each area of the company who are involved in the software development, reporting and compliance processes.
