FUTURE TECHNOLOGY involved in BASF’s deployment project, Seidor MENA will manage the entire implementation, from its Dubai offices. The implementation started last month and will take place in phased rollouts throughout the year. Seidor MENA’s role will extend beyond technology consultant to include supporting BASF in the changemanagement process, as the new business entity adapts from an enterprise system with a high degree of automation, to a leaner solution built for the small and medium enterprise. BASF’s project team will work from a Seidor MENA-crafted global template for the consolidation of business processes. As lessons are learned from initial rollouts, implementation will be standardised for subsequent waves to lower TCO for BASF. Seidor MENA will continue updating this template over a three-year period, based on business needs. In the digital age, IT decision makers are, I think, always looking for ways to reduce inhouse workload. INTELLIGENT TECH CHANNELS INTELLIGENT TECH CHANNELS Issue 29 33
