Optimized value for companies with „Advanced Analytics“
Strategic partnership between ICS Group and ICRON opens companies access to unique „Advanded Analytics“ platform, which offers agility and substantial increase in EBIT.
Neu-Anspach, 10 April 2017: In April 2017 ICS Group and ICRON sealed their strategic partnership. This partnership enables companies access to a so far unique Advanced Analytics platform. The high intelligent system, in the DACH region (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) under the brand name “ICS BI-Execution”, will be used for cross-company process analysis, planning and control.
In comparison with common Business Intelligence / Business Analytics systems, which only offer forecasts depending on data of the past, the innovative platform can develop real „What-if-scenarios“ and a free forecast model on different levels with real-time data. Beyond valid decision-making-tools and plan data, ICS BI-Execution can control automated supply chain processes by real- time data. So companies will be able to achieve key performance indicators (KPI) and a significant increase in EBIT.
ICRON, an international established software company for Advanced Planning & Scheduling and Supply Chain Optimization, offered the solution and software know-how. ICS, an established consulter and provider of integrated process digitization, received the sole consulting and selling right for the system solution. Both companies cooperate closely since 2016 and have implemented successful cross-company pilot projects to ICS BI-EXecution. With this exclusive agreement the partners intensify their cooperation to push even more the paradigm shift to analytics systems in concerns and medium-sized companies.
So Mr Stephan Müller, managing director of ICS IT-Logistik Systeme GmbH in the ICS Group, explains: „ICS BI-EXecution enables in a unique way forward-looking decisions over all business silos, which provide the way to the greatest possible success. Advanced Analytics is for sure one of the most valuable IT tools, which companies can use for profit maximization and improvement of their market positioning. The end of the coincidence by scenario-based planning and continuous real-time optimization.”
„In Gartner´s opinion the algorithm-based analysis of business processes will be a top technology trend in 2017, too. ICRON provides a software platform with optimization engines and self-learning algorithms, which enable a scenario-based analysis. This is possible because of memory computing power in real-time. Therefore companies receive fast high-quality plans and the possibility of ad hoc scenario analysis. These plans can be used optional for automated process control, for example for production, logistics and service. ICS BI-EXecution offers so a faster time-to-market than every other software at the market and unlimited “What-if-screnarios”, reported Nejdet Pamuk, Managing Director Europe and Asia of ICRON.
Thomas Brenneis, CFO of the ICS Group, sum up: “Business analytics was yesterday – today is the time for advanced analytics. With this solution companies receive a powerful IT-tool to make forward-looking plans and decisions. Realized projects showed extraordinary increase in EBIT in a short time.”
