Blue Reply, a Reply Group company, provides innovative SAP and IBM solutions. Blue Reply uses adaptive and agile IT platforms and strengthens these with customer-specific components. Project success is achieved through the cooperation between consultants with many years of industry-specific process experience and developers with in-depth product know-how and detailed knowledge of many other operational source & storage systems, where the relevant data and structural information are generated and retained for company divisions and business processes.
For many businesses, the global environment represents both an opportunity and a challenge: Although operating in international markets, structures and processes opens up new sales opportunities, it exposes companies to very specific competitive pressure. In this case, the digital transformation acts as an amplifier: The speed of the processes and the associated quantity of data and information are disproportionately increasing. Corporate management needs to rise to this challenge in order to convert the available data as quickly as possible into actionable insights that allow for more efficient and effective allocation of corporate resources. This mission-critical task has already massively challenged many companies: Existing planning processes are no longer adequately meeting the demands of goal-oriented, flexible management. Lengthy, complex and rigid processes that have historically evolved on the basis of outdated systems have led to a sclerotic degeneration of industries that were once dynamic. One of the main reasons for this is the de facto impossibility of management and planning needed to find new ways.
The solution consists of a targeted reduction in complexity that contributes to a significant acceleration and optimisation of processes in reporting. This begins with an evaluation of the appropriate software components to the optimisation of IT processes to allow for goal-oriented management to the reclamation of accruing - even if unused - data. The resulting effective and efficient allocation of resources stabilises results-oriented corporate management. All company divisions benefit from the further development of planning and forecasting processes - from sales, marketing, finance, controlling of accounting, HR, purchasing, production, and logistics to risk. The validation and optimisation of performance indicators and key figure catalogues serves as an important tool for efficient planning and management. The use of predictive analysis techniques and procedures, ‘looking into a crystal ball’ as the saying goes, is possible by establishing dynamic and highly efficient simulation and scenario options and using driver models. The continuous and consistent integration of all data and information enables the provision of internal and external data in almost real-time. A higher level of management competence is achieved not least through the needs-based preparation of management dashboards and reports that are also retrievable regardless of location (mobile/stationary). Proven change management concepts promote the integration of strategic goals into operational planning and management measures.
