Business Problem

Many companies suffer from sub-optimal customer relationships due to misaligned customer master data that is kept inconsistently and siloed across different applications. Redundancies and quality issues are commonplace. This results in:

  • Reduced sales effectiveness
  • High marketing costs
  • Suboptimal customer service
  • Unreliable analysis
Business Solution

This Rapid-Deployment Solution (RDS) for customer data integration (CDI) includes SAP software, predefined services, and pre-configured content enabling one single view of customer information. The package helps companies to consolidate and harmonize customer data from heterogeneous systems into one single version of the truth. What is more, with this RDS, you can get the process up and running in a couple of weeks. 

Key Scenarios:
