Annapolis, Maryland – Sidus BioData has been chosen by POMS Corporation as the platform provider for the world’s first cloud hosted Manufacturing Execution System (MES). POMS Corporation is the industry’s leader in MES with users spanning 20 countries and hundreds of sites, making it one of the most widely used MES solution in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Consumer Packaged Goods, and other regulated industries. According to Darrell Tanner, Director of Marketing and Sales for POMS, “Finding a hosting provider that understands FDA regulations was the most important element for POMS, Sidus checked all the boxes when it came to a cloud provider and meeting FDA standards, and is the perfect fit for our POMSnet MES software solution.”

Unlike mainstream cloud hosting providers, Sidus’ datacenters have been fully qualified against FDA and HIPAA/HITECH regulations. Sidus has set themselves apart by providing an established quality management system, documented procedures (SOP’s), staff training records, system risk assessment, change control/validation program and an experienced quality team that are CISA and CRISC certified.

Sidus BioData’s CEO Jason Silva states; “Our core mission from the start has been to provide robust managed IT solutions that can withstand any audit.” He goes on to say “The hosting of regulated data in a cloud environment requires not only a secure platform, it requires a cloud provider that understands the special needs of regulated companies in areas of quality, compliance and audit transparency. These elements are a key focus of Sidus BioData, because we understand that our solutions, and the companies we service, impact lives.”

Sidus and POMS recently co-presented to the FDA cross divisional Cloud Working Group. The presentation focused on showcasing how compliance in the cloud with a data critical MES system is achievable. Stephen Ferrell, Vice President of Quality for Sidus BioData has provided presentations and trainings to the FDA several times in the past few years on various subjects related to computer validation, software compliance and cloud technologies.
