Life Sciences

The Life Sciences and consumer health sector is undergoing dramatic changes, impacted by increased regulatory scrutiny, patent expirations, patient empowerment, and stringent cost containment. While the industry continues to lower costs and consolidate, it is seeking new growth opportunities through innovation, diversification and expansion in emerging markets.

Capgemini Consulting’s global life sciences team supports the industry across the entire value chain, from research and development to supply chain, support and commercial functions, including access and reimbursement. We advise companies through the product lifecycle, from product design to launch and end of lifecycle.

Our approach


Our sector team has helped industry organizations address strategic and transformation opportunities for over 25 years. We work with leading pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and diagnostic companies. The sector team also covers animal health, agri-chemical and specialized distribution.




In 2011, we established a dedicated oncology unit in partnership with Novo Oncology Associates. The unit combines scientific expertise, strategic consulting skills and a network of key opinion leaders to meet clients’ needs in this highly-specialized area. Our oncology services include portfolio strategy, commercialization and lifecycle management.






Track record and value delivery

Leveraging the breadth of Capgemini Consulting, our teams bring leading practices from other industries  that can help accelerate our clients’ transformation (e.g. customer analytics from financial services, digital strategy from telecoms, supply chain excellence from process manufacturing).



The life sciences team often leverages Capgemini’s Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE) to develop creativity and innovation across organizations and to bring added value in solving complex business issues.
