With its special Digitalisation Live show in Hall 5, the ERP hall, this year’s CeBIT is focusing on the opportunities and challenges of digital transformation – a strategic topic for enterprises. In order to succeed against growing competition in these times of digital change, it is essential to integrate business processes as fully as possible across all systems. These processes should include everything from internal IT silos to suppliers’ and partners’ solutions and reach through to the finished product in operation at the customer site. In order to facilitate this transformation for companies,the ERP specialist Asseco Solutions provides multiple integrations with solutions from specialised partners. This enables users to seamlessly interlink virtually all parts of their business process chain. Seven of these partners will be exhibiting on the Asseco booth, Stand B26 in Hall 5, at this year’s CeBIT (20-24 March in Hannover). They will be demonstrating the newest versions of their innovative solutions and showing how they work with APplus.

Come and visit us at the CeBIT“More and more systems are becoming integrated with the centralised ERP solution, so companies need significantly more time and effort to develop and maintain the corresponding interfaces,” says Carl-Heinz Gödde, Vice President Sales at Asseco Solutions. “To help them deal with this, Version 6.3 of APplus enables them to connect third-party systems to our solution efficiently and easily – with a few configuration changes. We’ll be demonstrating how that works with machines in a live showcase on our CeBIT stand – by connecting a brand new 3D metal printer from our customer O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH directly to APplus. The ERP system orders a product from the printer, which produces it live on the stand. It’s just as efficient to connect our partners’ solutions with APplus. In this way, we’re giving our users the means to ensure the integration of a process across all stages of their value chain – even with challenging scenarios.”

The seven Asseco partners will be giving multiple live demonstrations to give a real-life view of how their solutions interact with APplus. The demos are being held on the ERP specialists CeBIT stand (B26 in Hall 5) and will also show the new functions available in the individual solutions.
