The realities of the newly liberalized international trading system, including national
commitments to the rest of the international community under the WTO regime and
the fast rate of market change, are now presenting the enterprise with a new global
business setting and new challenges, which will require diligent attention to the
issues of efficiency, productivity and competitiveness to avoid the considerable
and serious risk of terminally dropping out of competition locally and globally.
The enterprise need for proper workflow design, operations planning and control
and online access by management to operational and financial data to guarantee management
timely visibility and sound decision-making and to prevent repetition of work and
delay in corrective intervention is evident. Likewise, staff development and performance
enhancement require increased staff empowerment and collaboration and data availability
in real-time to allow online business intelligence, financial analysis and objective
human resource performance appraisal.
Improving employee efficiency and productivity has always been one of the challenges
facing organizations large and small alike, as it influences enterprise competitiveness
and reflects on market share and profitability. Today, the growing connected and
highly mobile workforces use a variety of hardware, software, and ever-developing
service technologies to work more efficiently within and between many locations.
Under these conditions, the need to increase cross-enterprise information sharing
and collaboration requires today's enterprise to acquire the capacity to increase
convergence and automation to improve operational efficiency.
The inherent and rapidly growing capabilities of ICT technologies avail enormous
potential to the business community to enhance business management capacity and
hence business productivity and competitiveness.
