Standardization vs flexibility in SAP: Who should win?

Does your organization have complex, non-standard, and inflexible business processes that are limited by underlying SAP systems? Learn about moving to an SAP landscape that allows standardization while maintaining regional innovations and a flexibility to accommodate both internal and external organizational changes. Having the ‘right information’ at the ‘right time’ across the extended value chain through SAP-led business process harmonization will help your organization become more competitive, innovate faster, and increase operational efficiency.

Global companies have expanded as their businesses have grown in size and scale. They have spread geographically and acquired multiple businesses, which have resulted in multiple systems and processes. The complex scenario of processes and systems has contributed more to costs than provided flexibility to adapt to the dynamic market.

Today, business processes are inseparable from the systems that support them. It is imperative to achieve a certain level of homogeneity of processes and the systems that support them across geographies and if possible, business units. It enables businesses to:

  • Adapt flexibly to change
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase response times
