The organization's IT infrastructure - based on siloed, heterogeneous systems that the company had inefficiently weaved together over time - no longer supported Meyer Werft's need to run an adaptable, integrated business. To boost its competitive advantage, the shipbuilder needed to transform its IT infrastructure into a modern environment that would support the integration and automation of enterprisewide business processes as a set of linked services. Meyer Werft teamed with IBM Global Business Services and the IBM Software Group to launch the ICEflow application, which enables Meyer Werft to prioritize shipbuilding tasks and make changes on the fly.
