Other benefits include a simplified data model and unprecedented flexibility in the design of organizational structures and business processes.

Rinse Tamsma, Senior Vice President, Global Partner Operations, SAP MEE: “Amongst other benefits, the solution provides faster and more accurate insight into the production and logistics processes. Customers can respond much more quickly when, for example, the availability of material is not given. More generally, in future customers will be able to benefit from innovations on the basis of simplified processes in SAP S/4HANA in combination with itelligence’s industry expertise in plant and machinery. ”
