CeBIT 2015: responsive solutions for the digital transformation of companies
Scheer Group companies present in Hall 5, Booth D34
19. February 2015
Under the headline „Digitize Your Business!“ Scheer Group companies are presenting their wide ranging scope of business services for the digital transformation of business models and processes in companies. The „big change” for companies lies in the dramatic increase in the speed of reaction to changes in markets and individual customer demands over and above the entire value chain for the business. With SAP, ARIS, Scheer BPaaS and the IMC Learning Suite, Scheer Group companies support customers in all stages of their decision making processes from the development of strategy through process design to implementation. The main focus of its presence at CeBIT 2015 are Responsive Business Solutions for Industry 4.0, E-Commerce, E-Procurement und Compliance.
Today’s digital transformation touches all areas of private and business life, and at an ever increasing speed. The worldwide accumulation of data is doubling every two years due to the interconnectedness of products, services, customers and suppliers. This is leading to the far reaching transformation of all service oriented business processes. What is needed is high „responsivity“: quick response times and speed of adaption to changes in market conditions and individual customer demands going beyond the entire business value chain.
Company founder Prof Dr August-Wilhelm Scheer says “„Digital transformation” is a process that companies must actively design and pursue with responsive business models that enhance their position in the digital economy and ensure they remain competitive. The Scheer Group company network, with its 800 employees, accompanies this process from the design of strategy, over implementation to operation with resources from a single source“.
Companies in the Scheer Group are presenting responsive business models and processes for Industry 4.0 at CeBIT, in the areas of predictive analytics, augmented reality and cyber-physical production.
The increasing share of costs represented by materials over the entire value chain and beyond makes the management and optimisation of purchasing processes a factor critical to success in companies. The aim must be close cooperation between consumers, purchasing management and suppliers.
Scheer E-Procurement offers cloud based services covering the areas of operative procurement from the origination of the need, authorisation and ordering to the delivery of the product. In addition to their high adaptability, Scheer E-Procurement solutions are notable for their seamless integration with differing supplier catalogues and systems such as SAP SRM. The digital transformation is creating ever new methods and procedures with which employees, customers and partners must become familiar. The effort required to train staff, and the safeguarded control of regular training sessions represent a particular challenge in sectors with rigorous compliance requirements such as the financial, chemicals and pharmaceuticals or healthcare sectors. Companies are increasingly obligated to train their employees in subjects such as IT security, Data security, anti-corruption measures and much more.
With IMC´s compliance and e-learning solutions based in the cloud, solutions which enable adherence to compliance guidelines and the gaining of qualifications for new methods and procedures are available directly at the workplace, whether mobile, office based or on the machine floor. Learning measures and progress through them are automatically documented and if necessary certified.
E-commerce systems such as SAP Hybris are developing into central platforms for the digital transformation of trade and consumer goods industries. Belonging to this is the linking of all sales channels and the use of different devices, including mobile ones in the same buying experience. Data exchange in real time and the cost effective use of the available data volumes are becoming factors critical to success. With Scheer E-Commerce, a pre-configured cloud based integration solution is being presented which, using best practice templates, can be quickly and flexibly deployed. The solution comprises the integration of all systems relevant to E-Commerce such as PIM, CRM, ERP, social media, payment and logistics systems.
