Despite years of discussion and debate, companies still typically use 340 applications for every 10,000 end users-most of them not integrated with one another, according to The Hackett Group’s recent research. This finding flies in the face of the generally accepted view that it’s critical to integrate multiple, disparate applications, data sources, and human resources to provide the necessary information and transaction processing for timely and effective decision making and productivity. Added to the challenge is the need to provide this type of integration across the extended enterprise, including customers, suppliers, and partners.
