The Challenge



Identify an inspection-ready, yet efficient future state for ITQ organization in order to scale with rapid company growth

In 2017, after experiencing 10-fold growth, a leading U.S. biotechnology manufacturer faced the challenge of bringing the ITQ (Information Technology Quality) team up to speed with the stringent compliance and risk mitigation profile required of such a dynamic organization.

Initially, ownership of the IT QA processes was transferred to a Global Quality team; however, it was apparent that an outside assessment was required in order to efficiently meet the needs of the organization and bring the processes back under the IT umbrella.

That’s where Azzur IT Advisory Services stepped in. We’ve collectively logged thousands of hours listening to customers across the life sciences spectrum, working to gauge the situation, understand the core issues, illuminate the risks if problems go unsolved, and enable solutions that empower the business, and—most importantly—the people running it.

By channeling our experience into technology advisory services, our “professional outsiders” partner with clients to help them choose the best solution for their particular need and implement it successfully, while delivering compliance from day one.
