Winning in the downturn

In a recession, companies with a well-planned strategy for navigating the turns can gain significantly over the competition. Companies should monitor indicators and develop a business-cycle mindset. They must convert their biggest fixed costs into variable costs. Most importantly, they must develop the capability to respond fast during the upturn and cash in on opportunities.

SAP investments into core business processes form a significant percentage of IT costs of global organizations. CEOs and CIOs are exploring opportunities to cut costs, and get better return on investment (ROI) on their existing SAP investments. At the same time, organizations are learning to identify and take advantage of opportunities in this downturn to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. Learn more about specific focus areas that can help you win in a downturn.
