2005-08-10 - Austin, TX, USA: Business Rules Engine (BRE) specialist Resolution EBS is partnering with MyITgroup Ltd., a SAP Services Partner based in Houston, Texas. Together, the two companies will develop rules-based front office solutions for customers looking to further extend the value of their SAP implementations out to the front of their value chain.
MyITgroup specializes solely on providing professional services for SAP users, currently supporting around 300 clients. Its three divisions -- Workforce, Solutions and Outsourcing -- are focused on SAP's highest value solutions, with dedicated practices in SAP BI/BW, NetWeaver, CRM, SRM Enterprise Portals, XI and upgrades.
"Our experience serving SAP clients indicates there is a lot of opportunity to provide applications that extend SAP to the front of the value chain," said Erik Axton, MyITgroup Managing Director. "Resolution makes a perfect partner to team with on developing such solutions because they bring experience in building applications specifically for the front of the value chain. Their rules-based approach is innovative and unique. They have differentiated rules technology which they bring to bear in a very rapid and cost-saving way for customers."
One of the first projects the two companies will work on is a Web-based product configuration and order application leveraging SAP data. MyITgroup will oversee the integration between the SAP system and the Resolution-powered application. Resolution's BRE will generate the portal application based on its rule technology, which, among things, ensures the accuracy of the order. In addition, the application will offer product guidance to customers as they move through the order entry process, directing them to optimum selections.
Closing the loop, Resolution will then deliver the order information back into the SAP application, making sure there is enterprise consistency and accuracy of customer order information.
Resolution's patented rule technology, the Resolution Interactive Rules Platform(TM) (Resolution iR), is used by leading companies to generate solutions that provide the agility to respond quickly to the onslaught of competitive, business, technology and regulatory changes. These solutions range from interactive rating portals to responsive call center scripting, to web-based multichannel solutions that ensure consistency across selling channels. With the industry's smallest engine footprint, Resolution says that iR is ideal for direct customers as well as ISVs and SIs looking to embed or integrate interactivity and agility into their solutions.
"We look forward to working with MyITgroup," said Resolution CEO Peter Klante. "Their extraordinary SAP experience, expertise and reputation, when combined with our rules knowledge, will bring powerful SAP functionality to SAP users. It's a pleasure to work with such a well-respected organization to bring significant innovation and value to the marketplace."
