Retailer Enjoys Fruits of Process Efficiency With SAP Netweaver
Even for a successful chain such as the HIT supermarkets, retail is a tough industry, with stiff competition and low profit margins. To achieve long-term success, companies must ensure that all business processes - from purchasing, ordering, delivery, and quality control to business data evaluation - are efficiently managed and can be adapted quickly to meet new requirements. The legacy IT infrastructure at HIT was unable to support the emerging requirements of an increasingly dynamic retailer. To compete more effectively, Dohle Handelsgruppe GmbH & Co. KG decided to implement the SAP for Retail solution portfolio. Based on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, this delivered an integrated landscape and laid the foundation for enterprise Service-Oriented Architecture (enterprise SOA).
