New disruptive competition has changed the “clock speed” of business. Consumer expectations, set by e-commerce for shopping and social networks for communications, and always-on information access with mobile and 4G networks, are also increasing pressures on businesses to achieve results and outcomes like never before. Speed and agility are critical – a business must act faster and make better-informed predictions and decisions to compete and win.
SAP customers are working hard to realize the full value of their systems. But with legacy deployments, data in SAP systems is isolated from other business data and systems, leaving most users frustrated with too many manual processes. Additional pain points include the integration of multiple legacy systems and data silos driven by geographical expansion or growth through acquisitions.
