In April 2016, the FDA published its much-anticipated draft Guidance on Data Integrity. This Guidance is a great way for industry and FDA to start and continue the dialogue about data integrity.

Up until this point, the FDA has been largely silent on the use of cloud computing for FDA regulated systems, and industry has taken this silence to be, in many ways, a prohibition to its use.
