Challenges of Today's Enterprise
Connected Services Framework
The need to connect users with necessary information quickly and efficiently is at the heart of the challenges facing today's enterprise. The rate at which business is conducted continues to increase. This puts pressure on enterprise systems to provide more real-time information. Businesses are working to break down information barriers and to integrate functionality across the organization. This requires a reconsideration of how business information systems are architected and how they work together; specifically, how business information systems are structured to:
- Improve information-sharing and integration of systems.
- Enable a virtual work environment to increase worker productivity.
- Work with partners, suppliers, and distributor information to provide and consume external information services.
