Förbättra kassaflödet och minska faktureringskostnaderna med en smartare infrastruktur - IBM Smarter Business 2013

Published on

ESAB, världsledande inom svetsteknologi, är det svenska och globala företaget med krävande kunder, många i komplicerade leverantörskedjor och just-in-time tillverkningsprocesser. ESAB möter kraven bland annat
genom att automatisera processer och integrera egna och kunders system. Det har givit en förenkling av orderhanteringen och faktureringen, det har förbättrat kassaflödet och sänkt kostnader för fakturering. Bara en
förkortning av "kundkreditdagar" ger kostnadsfördelar i miljonbelopp per år. Ta del av hur Enfo har hjälpt ESAB göra detta till veklighet, hur en på riktigt smartare infrastruktur kan skapas. Talare: Magnus Strömer, Alliance Manager och Anders Wasén, Chief Architect, Enfo AB. Mer från dagen på http://bit.ly/sb13se

  6. 6. The ESAB case… Enfo Sweden AB A short introduction to ESAB:  Founded 1904 after Oscar Kjellberg’s invention of the welding electrode  World leader in welding and cutting equipment  Owned by Colfax corp. About 8.000 employees worldwide  Offices in 80 countries and 26 manufacturing plants ESAB boosts customer satisfaction with seamless EDI Accelerating onboarding for new clients, improving cash-flow, reducing invoice and order processing costs An IBM case-study: http://public.dhe.ibm.com/common/ssi/ecm/en/wsc14456seen/WSC14456SEEN.PDF
  7. 7. The ESAB case… Enfo Sweden AB The business case: • Together with IBM we analyzed ESAB’s financial statements and found that the Days sales outstanding (DSO) was higher than the industry average. • The reason was found to be in their IT solutions for EDI, which was unstable and difficult to monitor. • Invoicing for example added 2 days to their DSO. In decreased cash flow and loss of revenue these 2 days builds up to substantial amounts over a year. • Cash flow took a 23 million Euro hit which was slashed by 1 million Euro!

  13. 13. The solution Enfo Sweden AB ESAB started looking for a new B2B Gateway Key features for the new B2B platform: Ease of use! Flexible Scalable Robust Secure Efficient Atlas project was started to migrate several ERP instances to one Transformation of EDIFACT was moved from WMB to WTX in DataPower Partner profiles consolidated into DataPower XB60 SOA enabled B2B Gateway lessend the ESB complexity Several servers/protocols migrated into DataPower
  14. 14. The solution Enfo Sweden AB IBM DataPower overview  Purpose built hardware platform  Provides support for all “modern” protocols and B2B, e.g. EDIFACT, ebMS/ebXML, SHS, SSEK  Performs critical security functions and protects messages across the enterprise  Decreases cost by enabling self load balancing and cluster awareness  Enforces security standards with zero coding using configurable XML encryption, digital signatures, and Oauth  Supports data-streaming, removes the need for file storage in DMZ

  17. 17. What ESAB love the most… Enfo Sweden AB  Ability to support a wide range of customer demands in transport protocols due to the width of DataPower capabilities  Greatly decreased lead-time of onboarding new connections and partners  Consolidation of several protocols and different message-flows into DataPower gives your company a single focal point for all your external traffic. This is giving you only one place to monitor all your external data, regardless of if it is sFTP, WebServices, EDI, AS2 or any of the other supported protocols and message types.  Enfo Zystems concept of "Extend SOA to include B2B" has significantly decreased the complexity of routing in the back-end integration platform as DataPower handles any routing, even content-based, with such efficiency. The graphical Processing Policies in DataPower helps configuring fine control of message routing in a quick and efficient manner.
  18. 18. What ESAB love the most… Enfo Sweden AB  Out-of-the-box support for EDI, both ANSI X12 and EDIFACT in combination with the best transformation tool on the market, IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender, reduces development time of advanced transformations to a fraction compared to standard coding.  Profile based setup of partner- and message-flows gives the availability to deploy and change setup as a common base and also script configuration as both export and import packages. This is reducing errors and significantly speeding up projects.  Synchronous handling of transactions within DataPower gives the possibility to reject any invalid data sent by external partners. The transaction will be refused by DataPower and the partner will receive an Error-response instead of your organization having to deal and track down invalid data in your own internal platform. This is especially convenient for EDI data which is normally complex and difficult to track errors in.
