Boehringer Ingelheim – Creating value through innovation

Pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim converted its central SAP system 1:1 to S/4HANA. A critical part of the big bang: validating processes and data. Datavard supported the conversion with its KPMG-certified validation tool Datavard Validate and dedicated experts.

Pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim drives forward its transformation with the conversion of its global ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. It forms the digital core for the areas of finance, supply chain, trade, operations, and quality assurance. The go-live was carried out simultaneously in 41 countries within just four days. Boehringer’s goal by 2025: A central ERP and uniform global standards..

Nick Taylor, Project Manager for the major project, still remembers the long weekend in October 2020 well, when the big bang took place: “On Thursday we stopped the system, on Monday the new ERP was up and running – it can be summed up as simply as that.”

We integrated Datavard Validate into various phases of the project to show early on that we were going in the right direction.
