Axis Helps Biotech Company Achieve Regulatory Compliance with Microsoft Technologies

Problem Overview:

A global pharmaceutical company (of 7,500 employees) based in Massachusetts recently required proper classification around Microsoft Groups, SharePoint sites, Distribution Lists and Shared Mailboxes due to regulatory constraints.


To address regulatory requirements, Axis’ team augmented the client’s existing developers by bringing technical expertise to these Microsoft technologies:

  • SharePoint Online
  • Azure App Services (C# Web Services, Angular 5)
  • Azure SQL
  • Azure AD
  • Azure Functions


Working closely with the client, Axis was able to provide a self-service portal which allowed approval workflows and classification/re-classification of data at a defined interval to ensure regulatory requirements were met. The end users are provided a request form for each O365 component required. These forms collect the types of information to be stored and who the owner of the component is. An attestation process is then invoked based on date triggers to ensure the component is still required and properly classified.

Axis continues to work hand in hand with them to build out the offering to include O365 features and functions as Microsoft enhances their products. This has allowed the client to govern their O365 tenant and ensure regulatory requirements are met, including audit logging of all changes.
