Ebook Ebook


Information systems have enormous potential for enhancing business performance and overall profitability. This book provides a detailed examination of how the new NISS (new information system solutions) tools can be used to optimize shared assets within companies, to create adaptable new architectures that support the profitable growth of the company and to set companies apart from their competitors. Particular attention is given to:
– master data management (MDM), which provides a centralized, transversal business database;
– service-oriented architecture (SOA), a dominant architecture paradigm which is perfect for transformation, modernization and urbanization;
– business process management (BPM), a driving force for value creation and business unit innovation intermediaries.
As such, anyone involved in this field will find this book to be an indispensable and practical source of information.
