Do you think standardization and agility are in stark contrast to one another? Apply BearingPoint’s Business Process Harmonization (BPH) 4.0 solution and discover that they’re not. This unique approach helps you standardize your processes and at the same time makes you agile enough to embed the latest digital technologies. The cloud, mobile user interfaces, smart apps and big data analytics can all be integrated into your business process framework. Harmonize your processes and take your operations into the era of digitalization.

Harmonized and agile business processes are key differentiators for companies. Our offering in the area of business process harmonization supports clients in establishing a harmonized business process landscape with a clear focus on agility and digital innovation.

As a result of ongoing growth strategies, many of our clients have extended their global reach. However, mergers and acquisitions, as well as green-field plant ramp-ups, often come with heterogeneous business process models and diverse IT landscapes, causing significant inefficiencies for operational processes and communication.

BearingPoint’s agile BPH supports our clients in solving these inefficiencies by creating a sustainable harmonized business process landscape based on a toolkit consisting of a lean template process library, unique template governance models, a proven process standardization procedure and a successful and exclusive rollout approach. The approach, which is captured and determined by a proven business case calculation model, promises a considerably high return on investment (ROI) for our clients.

Applying BPH 4.0 promises the following tangible and sustainable business benefits:

  • Globally harmonized end-to-end business processes throughout the entire value chain
  • Agility, flexibility and speed in adopting and embedding digital innovations into the core, day-to-day processes
  • High ROI by exploiting synergies and economies of scale for aligned business and IT processes

By applying BPH 4.0, we were able to resolve a long-lasting conflict between maximization of scale economies on the one hand, and still allowing room for innovation and creativity on the other. We expect a tremendous strategic value for our company.
