Excelling in Digital Business with Groundbreaking Monetization Strategies

As companies embrace “digital transformation” and introduce “as-a-service” business models, the shortcomings of incumbent business processes and legacy ERP are being exposed. Wholesale ERP replacement is not realistic. However, process and systems changes can deliver real results. By improving monetization capabilities and reducing friction across the organization, progressive companies are realizing top- and bottom-line gains.
