Validated ERP implementation

For a long time, the introduction of Enterprise Resource Planning in the regulated environment was unthinkable in the public cloud, and even today, doubts remain. Is that even possible? Is that safe? What happens during updates? These are alll justified questions - to which there are good answers. The ERP project with the Berlin Cannabis company, Sanity Group, proved that a validated SaaS project isn’t just doable, it can be implemented with confidence.

Enabling a healthy and balanced life with cannabis

The Sanity Group was founded in 2018 in Berlin, and its mission is to use medicinal cannabis to help people. The over 120 employees of the startup want to help people lead a healthy and balanced life, using the positive therapeutic effects of cannabis. The company brings the medicinal substance to market responsibly and carefully, with research, awareness raising, and its own brands. As the company grew, so did the workload, and the Excel spreadsheets. The company knew it was time to search for a suitable ERP solution.

Validated implementation in a regulated environment

An ERP consultant set up the first contact between Sanity Group and YAVEON. After several meetings focusing on the benefits of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and the YAVEON ProBatch industry solution for the pharmaceutical industry, the project was able to get underway.

The goal: implementation to the private cloud.


In the course of the project, the potential of the public cloud became more apparent. However, as a pharmaceutical company, Vayamed GmbH, a subsidiary of the Sanity Group, is subject to strict regulations and is obliged to validate internal processes and computerized systems. Were there concerns about a validated online implementation of the SaaS Business Central solution? Certainly, some questions and tasks had to be clarified—together with the YAVEON validation team. However, the advantages of a SaaS solution won the Sanity Group team over, and so the decision was quickly made to go all out with the public cloud.

Requirement: Update management

In order to validate in the public cloud, certain conditions must be observed. YAVEON offers validation templates that fully prepare the validation process, and enables the implementation of comprehensive update management. Why? The explanation is simple. Microsoft solutions such as Business Central Online are kept up-to-date with major updates twice a year, and minor updates monthly.  When introducing validated software, the company must ensure that the process is structured and documented. An ERP update is similar to an update on a cellphone. In general, the update goes smoothly, and the functions of an app are retained after the update has been completed. However, instead of simply assuming this will happen, validated solutions are subject to documentation and verification requirements. To ensure this, all product-related changes are thoroughly tested during YAVEON product development. Update lists, which can be used to identify the functions affected, enable the customer to assess the impact of an update on their system and take appropriate action before it is carried out.

Validation in the public cloud: implemented with confidence

Looking back, we can say, the introduction of the software solution went according to plan. Together with the YAVEON consultants, the Sanity Group team systematically implemented all the necessary steps - even when it came to the validation processes. The project participants mastered the project with composure, confidence, and a little bit of courage. A big compliment to the team— It was a pleasure working with you!
