Existence of 'Organization Silos'

Source:BtoB B2B(2010-12-27)Categories:[B2B News] Keyword: B2B

In today's typical small, medium or large sized company, only certain parts of the business processes that form the backbone of any company's business are automated. With little integration among different departments and systems supporting various business process activities, several isolated islands of information, known as organization silos, exist within a company.

Much human intervention is required to complete these processes, causing increased response time and slower cycle time. Furthermore, several of the currently automated business processes are fragmented in nature, with applications and data underlying them owned by different organizational units.

The primary goal of dynamic real-time B2B cannot be achieved if the underlying business processes are not automated and integrated to work at Internet speed with complete accuracy, flexibility and adaptability. A successful implementation of B2B requires a business process management (BPM) strategy that leads to sound end-to-end, cross-application and cross-organization business process integration.

BPM enables collaboration among trading partners in a secured, scalable and reliable manner. It does so by supporting dynamic process topologies that allow the boundary between processes and participants to be determined either statically or dynamically on a real-time basis.
