Can companies conquer IT/data nightmares and enable communication
and collaboration? The relatively easy stuff has already been done:
eProcurement, back office financials, etc. - easily done with stand-alone
applications. Now, organizations need to adopt ways of thinking
about how their IT is structured to enable greater flexibility and
a more robust use of data across the organization and with trading
Companies are able to operate internally using enterprise solutions,
but their connections to trading partners are often clumsy. This
is because enterprise applications limit the amount and quality
of intercommunication that can happen beyond the enterprise between
businesses, trading partners and other third-parties.
However, EEM (Extended Enterprise Management) and SOA (Service-Oriented
Architecture), when combined, can overcome this inherent shortcoming,
providing greater flexibility, efficiency and consistency in interactions
with customers and increasing collaboration.
Efficient information processing and exchange is powerful - especially
when coupled with the Internet as a vehicle to connect and extend
enterprise. Archstone Consulting asserts there is a right way to
go about structuring to truly realize value. Simply put, SOA is
the most effective way to drive to EEM.
In this interactive Executive Briefing, led by Archstone Consulting's
San Francisco-based principal and global manufacturing practice
leader, Mr. Eric Schlumpf, participants will explore a holistic
view of business systems from a business process, information and
decision-making perspective. Input from Valley companies that are
grappling with these, and other timely issues will enliven the discussion.
