Fulfilling pharma regulatory requirements and beyond
Founded in 1907, the family enterprise Hermes Arzneimittel manufactures and supplies high quality self-medication products. To ensure public safety, regulatory bodies in Germany and Europe stipulate continuous monitoring (“Ongoing Process Verification” or OPV) of drug manufacturing processes, and require companies to document critical product attributes and process parameters.
Collaborating with its VAR partner QuinScape GmbH, Hermes deployed a data lake based on Hadoop and using Talend Real-Time Big Data with Cloudera to ingest six different systems, each providing process information at different points in the manufacturing process. Sensor data coming from production processes give greater insight into the manufacturing operations and help produce high-quality medication products for customers.
