Our experience in SAP-enabled business transformations for life sciences is unparalleled

SAP is at the very heart of what we are doing at Tenthpin. Delivering SAP programs has shaped our Tenthpin DNA over the years. And even after 40 years of SAP transformations, it is still a complex operation with high organizational impact, high visibility, and significant failure rates. Nevertheless, we deliver our SAP transformation projects successfully – across the whole SAP product suite.

Our SAP capabilities

Building the technical core as well as the organizational capabilities for the journey towards the intelligent enterprise

Where and why do projects fail? Thanks to our years of experience in consulting, we know that the pitfalls to success aren’t limited to technology. Transformation projects encounter hurdles in technology, organizational change management, process design and data management. We understand and solve challenges of transformation on all of those 4 dimensions.

Our consultants bring all capabilities from engaging the executive level to successfully facilitating and delivering content workshops with business and IT experts.


We offer a deep, hands-on design and implementation know-how across the full SAP product suite:

  • from SAP S/4HANA to the Life Sciences Industry Cloud on SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP),
  • from EWM and IBP to ARIBA.

In addition, we provide accelerators and a CSV/GxP-compliant implementation methodology to ensure smooth, timely, and high-quality transformations.


We deliver proven process mock-ups in all our core industries, leveraging industry standards like BPMN 2.0. Ready to be used in project work and available in SAP Solution Manager and Signavio Process Manager.

We understand the critical challenges around master data management like heredity. We know the key defining attributes and the change rules, the link to regulatory information management, and the overall integration to research & development and product launch.


Your employees are the key to fully utilizing new ERP capabilities and achieving business benefits. Therefore, an engaging organizational change management (OCM) is vital to a successful transformation.

At Tenthpin, we provide a methodology for your employees change journey. Discover how we do it.


Transforming to SAP S/4HANA means building the core for the intelligent enterprise. But it’s data management that gains insights, improves decision-making, speeds up innovation and creates business value.

We support companies with our data & analytics practice to become truly data driven organizations.
