On September 18, 2018, the first SAP Business ByDesign Greater China Customer Conference was successfully held in Shanghai SAP China Research Institute.
AcloudEAR invited AIIB, AMOU China, Luoyang Gaoke Molybdenum and Tungsten Material Co., Ltd., Feltrin (Beijing) Automotive Products Co., Ltd., Suzhou Faraday Electric Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Lecheng Intellectual Technology Development Co., Ltd., and CLP Terez Avionics Co., Ltd. to participate in this grand gathering.
From Internet to Industry 4.0, small and medium-sized enterprises are experiencing the best and worst times. Subversion and subversion are common in an efficient economic world. Small and medium-sized enterprises have unlimited opportunities, but it also means that once they are lagging behind, they will soon be lost in the dust. At this time, the power of digitalization becomes the key to decide whether an enterprise is a “trendsetter” who takes advantage of the wind and waves or a photographer who takes photos on the beach after the waves are gone.
In view of the size factor, small and medium-sized enterprises can have more flexible “posture” in the process of digital transformation. However, compared with large enterprises, small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises have greater disadvantages in terms of talents, capital, technology and management. In addition, large enterprises can choose to make a transformation attempt in a certain product line and accumulate experience. However, small and medium-sized enterprises cannot bear the costs and risks of this trial and error, resulting in relatively insufficient experience in starting digital transformation, difficulty in establishing scientific transformation and upgrading system methodology, and difficulty in strategic choice and control of digital core elements.
As a “good teacher and helpful friend” of small and medium-sized enterprises, SAP, based on its own technical experience and characteristics of small and medium-sized enterprises, continuously innovates and strives to develop digital transformation tools suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. The leading role of this customer exchange meeting, SAP Business ByDesign, is for small and medium-sized enterprises.
SAP Business ByDesign functionally helps enterprises simplify end-to-end processes, promote process automation, promote internal collaboration, adapt to business needs of enterprises, and maximize work efficiency. Built-in mobile applications help managers manage enterprises anytime and anywhere. Small and medium-sized enterprises can respond quickly, seize new business opportunities in due course, and speed up business growth. At the same time, during the online deployment of SAP Business ByDesign, the risk of business interruption was reduced by relying on SAP professional consulting team and SAP’s more than 40 years of practical experience in various industries.
When an enterprise deploys SAP Business ByDesign, IT has functional modules that support all businesses from finance to CRM. The enterprise can choose the modules it needs to use, start from a small scale, and enable more modules as the business expands. The enterprise will obtain stable and continuous IT assistance in the whole development process. In addition, SAP Business ByDesign is built in the cloud, which can save huge IT hardware costs for enterprises, as well as obtain as many services and remote support as possible.
Innovation casting smart enterprise
As a cloud product, innovation has been written into the gene of SAP Business ByDesign. At this conference, Rainer Zinow, senior vice president of SAP Global, showed how SAP Business ByDesign can help enterprises realize intelligent operation through innovation. In the era of digital economy, technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, advanced analysis and block chain have become the mainstream. With the help of a unified cloud platform and SAP HANA digital core, SAP Business ByDesign can provide available emerging technologies to enterprises in the first place, helping enterprises to create “information products” that adapt to their real-time analysis “brains” and surpass physical production lines, providing customers with perfect experience and realizing intelligent operation.
Go digital together
At present, nearly 5,000 enterprises in more than 140 countries and regions worldwide are operating SAP Business ByDesign. Some of them may have achieved little or are still in the process of exploration. This customer exchange provides an opportunity to discuss in depth with SAP experts and other partners the experience of digital transformation and learn more about the utility and future of SAP Business ByDesign. Nearly 30 customer enterprises have enthusiastically signed up for this conference.
At this conference, several manufacturing enterprises such as Shanghai Weikan Electronic Materials Co., Ltd., Fuwick Trading Co., Ltd. and Feltrin (Beijing) Auto Products Co., Ltd. took the stage to share their internal and external difficulties and solutions encountered in the digital reform, as well as how to use SAP Business ByDesign function to realize the balance between product research and development and production process, drive research and development with demand, and effectively accelerate product innovation. To achieve customer customization, independent restructuring of production lines, flexible manufacturing and other functions, to build a comprehensive enterprise digital framework based on intelligent enterprise operations and intelligent product manufacturing, to effectively lead enterprises to digitalization and enhance competitiveness.
The round-table customer dialogue at the end of the conference, guided by the host’s “poison tongue” ridicule, all the guests spoke out freely, not only sharing the story of SAP ByD’s growth with their own enterprises, but also pointing out some shortcomings of SAP ByD without reservation. SAP experts sitting in the audience also participated in the discussion of solutions and improvements. Finally, in a warm atmosphere, the conference ended.
The meeting was successfully concluded, but the journey of digital transformation has just begun. SAP Business ByDesign hopes to join hands with more customers and partners to realize more efficient and flexible management of enterprises, improve business agility and production and manufacturing level, and take a step forward in the brutal market competition.
