Today we will explain how an IT vendor such as SAP can help in building a more business-friendly country and what clients of ours have done to support topics that are subject to the assessment of the Doing Business and Transparency International Indexes.
Let us start with a look at the Doing Business Index criteria:
As you can see, the variety of criteria covered by the index is amazing. Of course the description above is shortened. Later you will see that it is absolutely worth reading a more detailed description. Only by doing this is it possible to find appropriate and clear measures for process improvements and their link to the use of information technology. For an example: in the Doing Business country reports you can find a breakdown of local processes into subtasks – such as which part of the processing time is dedicated to inspections, or which part is blocked out for approvals by the administration.
Generally time and cost are measured, along with the complexity of procedure. Here we can already see an almost obvious link to information technology that claims to simplify and accelerate business processes – entailing lower costs or more price-cutting potential for service fees.
Next time we will check HOW SAP CAN HELP – before we deepdive into our response to the criteria.
