Accenture said that it has helped Indian pharma company Lupin in its data-powered transformation journey to improve its business agility, performance, and operational efficiency.

As part of the partnership between the two firms, Accenture deployed a SAP S/4HANA-based digital platform for the pharma company.

The platform is said to provide real-time visibility to decision makers into integrated data from various sources such as supply chain, sales networks, and people. The sources of Lupin’s data are spread over more than 100 countries and 15 manufacturing and research facilities in India, the US, Mexico, and Brazil.

By consolidating the view of global business operations and performance, the pharma company is able to take informed decisions, said Accenture.

Accenture India life sciences practice lead Sameer Amte said: “As Indian multinational pharmaceutical companies look at navigating supply chain disruptions and gaining a stronger foothold in the global economy, digital transformation will play a key role in advancing competitiveness by running more efficient business processes, improving research and development capabilities, and creating better customer experiences.

“With our deep industry experience and technology capabilities, we are helping Lupin become an intelligent enterprise by enabling data-driven decisions that will help accelerate product innovation and enable faster access to market.”

Lupin also used SAP Fiori apps to improve the user experience for its employees with data models and analytical reports that are said to be simple and easy to access.

Lupin CIO Sreeji Gopinathan said: “Lupin is committed to providing affordable healthcare to people across the world, and our data-driven digital platform will play a crucial role in this mission.

“Through our collaboration with Accenture, we will unlock the value of enterprise data in order to increase efficiencies and accelerate innovation across all our functions and processes, including manufacturing, testing, supply chain, and finance and accounting.”

Last month, Lupin deployed the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform for running its SAP S/4HANA mission-critical environment to drive its digital transformation.
