Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration Architecture and Design Principles

SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration is an SAP "Industry Cloud" Solution for the Life Science industry. This is a concept that SAP follows to provide industry-specific solutions including solutions from partners, that are leveraging the SAP Business Technology Platform to extend the SAP "Intelligent Suite" capabilities with industry-specific solutions while keeping the core clean and therefore easier to upgrade and operate.

As such, SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration is built using services of the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and uses open APIs and the SAP Integration Suite to connect to external systems for data exchange. Furthermore, we are using the SAP Event Mesh service to publish and receive updates from external systems during the execution of treatment orders. Another service of the SAP BTP that we employ is the workflow management service (part of the robotic process automation suite) to define workflows. Access to SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration is provided using a standard web browser and the SAP Fiori launchpad. With a subscription, a customer would get access to a set of tenants running SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration for non-productive usage (for example, for development, test, qualification, training) and one productive tenant for productive usage. This system landscape then can be integrated with other customer on-premise or cloud applications either using SAP Integration Suite or another integration middleware.

Several external services will be typically integrated with SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration. An ERP system, which can be an SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA system, or a third-party ERP, the patient management and onboarding application as well as the protected health information (PHI) data vault. As part of the SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration subscription, the so called "Data and Document Vault Integration add-on for SAP Cell and Gene Therapy Orchestration" is provided which helps to integrate the PHI data and document vault in the customer system landscape.
