A single source of truth

Long-term data lifecycle management for Pharmaceuticals, Life Sciences and Health Care

I’ve got a Scientific Data Management System – isn’t that enough to manage my End of Life systems?


End of life systems (also known as application retirement) has been a common fact of life in all technology, be it laboratory instruments or software applications. As part of a product’s lifecycle the manufacturer plans an end of life where the product and/or application is no longer supported.
In order to comply with MHRA data integrity guidelines and GxP principles you need to break down data silos and create a single view to enable you to access and re-use the data, all whilst keeping the data complete, consistent, accurate and in its original form.
In this blog we discuss why a SDMS system rarely solves this issue.

Top performing organisations trust Arkivum to manage their complex data lifecycle requirements

Arkivum Trust not only safeguards and preserves your valuable data for the long-term, it brings it to life by making it easily accessible and searchable for when you need it, providing a single source of truth.

End of Life systems

Continuing to run systems once they have reached end of life is a very risky strategy, yet so many organisations do so. Not only does it mean a severe lack of security as you are often unable to plug end of life systems into your security policies and processes, it also means a lot of your valuable data is locked in to a system that could die at any point, which puts a lot of your research data at risk of loss, corruption and inaccessibility. Arkivum software removes data silos and allows organisations to integrate valuable data, removing risk by making your data accessible usable and compliant for the long term.

Accessible usable and compliant data

Integrate valuable data

Fully auditable lifecycle

Merger or De-Merger

Whether it is acquisition of smaller organisations into your estate as part of a merger or acquisition, or creation of a completely new entity as part of a de-merger; there will be data that needs to be consolidated and preserved into the long term. By using Arkivum we can give you the peace of mind through our fully managed service that you will be able to access, re-use and consolidate data from recently acquired assets, trials or compounds, removing data silos and ensuring long term management of your regulated data.

Compliant data management

Reuse and consolidate valuable data

Fully auditable lifecycle

GxP and research data integrity

All pharmaceutical companies have a regulatory requirement to keep key GxP records (eTMF data, clinical study reports, lab notes etc) for the long term, in some cases indefinitely. During that time, it is mandated that regulatory authorities are able to have readable access to the archive for regulatory audit purposes and be able to reconstruct a clinical trial should there be a question about one of their products or trial processes years down the line. Arkivum software and services makes your historical data an asset rather than a risk by removing data silos around your business to make data accessible and usable, guaranteeing 100% data integrity and preserving it for the long term.

Don't just take our word for it

Here's what our clients have to say about us

"Big data is becoming a very real challenge for all genetics laboratories, not just Bristol Genetics Laboratory. Over the next two years, we’ll generate more than 30TB of data from NGS services alone. The true value of that data is not yet known so we need to store it for the very long term to be able to access and interrogate it over time as new data analysis techniques are developed."
