eTMF Implementation Drivers

Different factors drive the move to a fit-for-purpose eTMF system. We can differentiate two types of eTMF implementation:

  • eTMF to another eTMF migration
  • Paper based TMF to eTMF

eTMF to eTMF Migration

One of the main reasons organizations switch from one eTMF to another is typically lack of control of the content and process, dispersion of the content across multiple systems, and ineffective ownership/governance of the eTMF content. Furthermore, information accessibility, effective integration,  and the coarse security model without granular access control also contributes to move one’s eTMF to a more robust technology.

Paper TMF to eTMF Transformation

Top reason to move from the paper-based processes to an electronic and digital system environment is certainly the need to provide a global access to the TMF, as well as flexibility of the outsourcing operational activities. However, one should also not neglect the significant reduction in paper production that is experienced in the process.
