USDM and Oracle Host the Only Life Sciences Social Event at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 and Present With Panel of Experts Discussing Cloud Validation; USDM's VP of IT/Virtualization Practice to Present: Validating the Cloud - Perspectives on SaaS in Life Sciences Industries

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2013) - USDM, a leading global regulatory consulting firm in the life sciences space, is proud to team with Oracle and Avnet in hosting the Life Sciences Social event at OpenWorld. This life sciences only OpenWorld party with fine wine and great company at the Press Club, offering the ultimate wine experience in one of San Francisco's most notable destinations, is the only life science networking event at OpenWorld. Our intent is to create a forum for a dialog about what it takes to achieve performance and compliance in the regulated life science industry.

In addition, Subbu Viswanathan, USDM VP IT/Virtualization will be part of the three member panel discussing validation of cloud based solutions. The panel discussion is entitled: Validating the Cloud-Perspectives on SaaS in Life Sciences Industries (Wednesday, September 25 - 1:15-2:15pm at the St. Francis Hotel - Yorkshire Room).  

"I welcome the opportunity to team with Oracle in discussing this crucial topic at the OpenWorld Conference," said Subbu Viswanathan, USDM VP IT/Virtualization, "Validating the Cloud is extremely relevant and crucial for our clients. I consider this a tremendous opportunity to share insight and information. Life Sciences industries must operate under a litany of regulatory rules and demonstrate strict control of their business processes and computer systems. Consequently, the concept of ceding some control over to third parties, be it a Platform as a Service vendor or a Software as a Service vendor has taken a longer road to acceptance in these industries than in others. The continued maturation of solutions, such as Oracle Cloud, reduces risk. The cost benefits of hosted and SaaS-based solutions are driving industry to take a fresh look at the concept of compliance in the cloud and define equitable risk tolerance ahead of any specific regulatory guidance. I intend to use this session to offer my perspectives along with other industry experts on this timely topic."

USDM is very proud to be sponsoring this exclusive Life Sciences event with Oracle for the 4th year in a row. This year USDM will be unveiling new solutions for the recently announced Final Rule for Unique Device Identification (UDI) and Serialization as well as ways to maintain compliance in the Cloud. We are looking forward to introducing these offering to the life sciences community at OpenWorld said Kim Hutchings, VP of Alliances at USDM
