Be it structural transition, climate change or the pandemic – many manufacturing enterprises are faced with enormous new challenges. Their common goal: Finding the ideal balance between innovation, profitability, resilience and sustainability. The path to that goal must lead through fully digitalized horizontal and vertical integration of business processes. No matter whether this is achieved by ways of a single business platform or an optimized custom mix of several platforms – the key lies in creating integrated, consistently digitalized end-to-end business processes.
Solution closes gap for cloud-based and hybrid implementations
As an internationally leading IT provider of integrations for Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and SAP’s platform, CENIT is boosting the “Cloud First” approach of the two major software makers with its own high-performance solution. The “cenitCONNECT SAP Integration for the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud” enables full-scale integration of cloud-based implementations. CENIT’s new product therefore closes a gap that previous integration solutions have left open.
“cenitCONNECT SAP Integration for the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud” now lets businesses assemble their very own blend of solutions – and more than that: It also permits the implementation within their individual system architectures, without any sacrifices in terms of end-to-end integration of data and processes.
Dedicated consulting packages to boost process efficiency
In developing the new solution, CENIT relied on the philosophy that a combined, integrated use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and SAP offers massive added value for continual business process development. In addition to the cloud integration solution, CENIT therefore provides its “Ready to Grow” family of consulting best practices, aimed at the resolution of key process questions, definition of solution design, and quick and efficient achievement of initial productive implementations. Examples include “Ready to Orchestrate” for cross-platform implementation of release and change processes, or “Ready to Individualize” for cross-platform variant and configuration management permitting customized small-batch manufacturing.
Process and data continuity between two worlds
“Ever since CENIT was founded in 1988, we have pursued the goal of long-term collaboration. We consciously entered into partnerships with the leading software providers Dassault Systèmes and SAP and have built up significant sales volumes with their solutions. This lets us continually invest in our technology expertise on the two portfolios, giving us a basis for creating superior partner solutions,” says Kurt Bengel, CEO of CENIT AG. “With the “cenitCONNECT SAP Integration for the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud”, we are taking a decisive, forward-looking step toward optimizing value-adding processes of customers who rely on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and are also active in the SAP world”, he adds.
Stéphane Declée, CEO, ENOVIA, Dassault Systèmes, said: “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the world’s largest portfolio available on the cloud for collaborative innovation for manufacturing enterprises. We enable companies of all sizes to embrace the Industry Renaissance, helping them to discover and engage in new business opportunities that create incredible value for their customers. Many of our clients also rely on SAP solutions and therefore expect a full integration of their cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform with their SAP landscape. In CENIT, we have a partner who is at home in both worlds, offering a unique ability to deliver digital process and data continuity to our customers”.
