Bowi prototype generated xRM ecosystem cockpit research project complex value chains with numerous interacting partners value chain cockpit (VCC) require a high degree of inter-company coordination, but now was not an efficient solution that combines CRM and SCM systems. The Sandra GmbH has developed a prototype that fills this gap now based on research project value chain cockpit (VCC). xRM ecosystem cockpit provides access to relevant information all participants of a company ecosystems by it visualizes value chains and key figures in the clear dashboard. Retrospective In the summer of 2009 a consortium consisting of joins from professionals of the company of BI business intelligence, bowi and salt solutions, and scientists of the Institute for applied Informatics, Leipzig, together. So they call value chain cockpit (VCC), the BMBF-funded project.
VCC has approached, a one cockpit-based approach to deliver the essential information along the value chain Company bundles. Corporate ERP systems experienced an extension to cross-cutting views of customer relationship management and logistics, CRM and SCM systems in the framework of the research project. While bowi and salt develop in cooperation with the University of Leipzig application scenarios that aim to match customer-oriented, production and logistic measures among themselves. BI partner implements technically these scenarios project laboratory, before being documented and tested on applicability and by the Consortium. Knowledge wealth finally presents the project for research reports and basis for the doctrine of the future, as well as a prototype in December 2011. Based on the research results, CRM pioneer developed an own product named bowi since xRM ecosystem cockpit. xRM ecosystem cockpit encounter major problems and challenges inter-company network building and transparency, which shows VCC and depicts in his prototype, bowi in own customer projects: networked structures move increasingly into focus, partnerships and Partnerships are increasing parallel to falling production depth and grows the need for rapid exchange of information across enterprise boundaries.
