… in IT & Telecommunications

IT & Telecommunications

You would think that IT and telecommunication companies should be highly digitalised after all … Yes and no!

Because the industry was a pioneer in digitalisation, it was one of the first to automate processes, but that was also a few decades ago.

Consolidation in the market = SILOS in the company

Do you remember how many mobile phone providers you had to choose between 10 years ago? The formerly countless providers melted down to just a handful within a few years – that’s how strong the consolidation on the IT & telecommunications market was. 

But: every merger and every takeover also brought the software and system landscapes of the companies together. Hardly any other industry suffers so much from data silos, i.e. individual divisions use their own database and data processing systems that are neither integrated nor networked centrally.

Aggregation & Integration

A coherent business intelligence system landscape will finally centralise decision-making. All master data of all organisational units are mapped in a single system and, for example, transferred to a completed P&L.

Data transparency and data validity reach maximum levels with a bdg solution. 

But system integration does not only work vertically. Do you also integrate horizontally along the departments with bdg, a personnel planning that is simultaneously written into the financial planning? It’s possible! More about this here.

PlanNIng & Forecasting

Once all the data is centrally available, nothing stands in the way of planning. With an EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) solution, you bring planning, forecasting and simulation into play. To do this, you put the collected data into a historical context – as the basis for your planning into the future.

Forecast demand for your sales controlling, plan customer retention activities along the customer lifecycle and standardise reporting company-wide. This is a decisive advantage, especially in the IT and telecommunications sectors.

With Professional Customer Access Management, bdg supports you in the implementation of your customised planning solution.
