News from the industry & from ECENTA



ECENTA is now SAP Recognized Expertise Partner

In July 2017, ECENTA met all the criteria for achieving the SAP Recognized Expertise Partnership. We are now officially SAP Recognized Expertise Partner for Sales, Service and Marketing Cloud Solutions. Special thanks go to our customers that have participated in the surveys!



SAP Leonardo@ECENTA – What you can expect from ECENTA’s Innovation Lab

In our latest newsletter, we introduced the SAP Hybris Revenue Cloud, a cloud-based application that supports high transaction volumes with integrated rating and billing capabilities. This solution is ideal for scenarios where sensors measure consumption data for billing purposes. ECENTA is always looking for new trends and technologies. To this end, we have now set up an internal laboratory - the ECENTA Innovation Lab - which specializes in the use of SAP Leonardo and the SAP Cloud Platform. The focus is currently on integrating IoT-capable devices and integrating them directly into SAP Hybris C4C and/or our B2B service portal. First examples of scenarios using VR glasses have also been created here.

The team has specialized in the digitization of existing and new business processes and shows amazing use cases! Especially in the B2B after-sales and service areas, we see great potential to support the service manager with important information about the current operation, the status of the devices and the service processes directly on site.

Events



DSAG-Jahreskongress 26.-28. September 2017, Bremen

This year’s theme is „Zwischen den Welten“ (“Between the Worlds”), which leaves a lot of room for interpretation. The worlds in this case are of course not Cloud and onPremise, but the ERP centered world amidst the networked digital world. We will, as always, be present with a big booth and bring along some examples to current topics: The B2B Service Portal, our C4C/CS connector and a vivid IoT scenario. In addition, our customer FESTO will present their implementation project of SAP Hybris Sales Cloud using a hybrid scenario with SAP CRM.

Meet us in hall A, booth 12!



SAP Hybris Global Summit 17.-19. October 2017, Barcelona

Previously only in Munich, for the first time the Hybris Summit will be a global event. We are represented with a booth, and two of our customers will speak on stage about their projects.
