In an increasingly digitalized environment, companies, and especially SMEs, must respond quickly to market demands in order to be increasingly competitive and not to miss important business opportunities; it is therefore essential to provide customers with flexible and intelligent solutions that simplify business processes, has explained Adriano Ceccherini, General Business Director of SAP Italia. In Italy too, customers are increasingly asking us to accompany them in the digitalization process, going beyond the concept of real time to reach the new world of live business where it is possible not only to control the past, but to predict the future by linking company functions, people and partners in a single fully digital integrated system, able to anticipate, simulate and identify new business opportunities. And today all this is also within the reach of SMEs.
