  • Business Intelligence

    BI encompasses the integration of strategies, processes and technologies in order to generate success-critical information on status, potential and perspectives from fragmented, inhomogeneous company, market and competitor data in the environment of decision-support systems and to present this information in a suitable way for analysis, planning and control purposes.

  • Customer Relationship Management CRM

    Customer Relationship Management (CRM) describes the shaping of customer relationships. It is a customer-oriented management approach with the aim of securing the company's success in the long term. CRM requires corporate cultural, organisational and technological foundations to align business processes with customer needs.

  • Information Management IM

    The most important topic in information management is the support of strategy implementation and as well as the organisation of companies and their information processing. Thus, a development or change of information systems often aims directly at the implementation of corporate goals.

  • Supply Chain Management SCM

    SCM (Supply Chain Management) represents a holistic (also cross-company) view of the business processes of logistics and production with the aim of optimally designing and operating these processes. Both customer requirements, such as short delivery times and high adherence to delivery dates, and internal company goals, such as low inventories and short throughput times, must be taken into account.
