Creating competitive advantages in real time with synchronised and efficient processes

Currently a dramatic change towards e-business is taking place in all industries. E-business supports all processes along the supply chain (P2P, O2C) as well as strategic goals such as internationalisation, quality and profitability. The implementation however is difficult: The connection of web shops, transmission of client's data in real time, payment processing and the connection of external service providers place very high requirements on the IT. Companies need to react faster and be more flexible to change.
