CIMdata Publishes “SAP 3D Visual Enterprise:” Observe, Analyze, and Guide Business Optimization

CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces a new paper exploring SAP’s 3D Visual Enterprise product.

Industry executives have long known that making better-informed decisions improves business results. Presenting product- and business-related information three-dimensionally makes digital content more accessible and understandable to users. When presented together with associated business data and analytics, stakeholders can better comprehend data relationships and better support their decision processes. This visual decision-making approach enables better-informed users to make more insightful judgments that deliver higher business value. For SAP and non-SAP customers alike, the SAP 3D Visual Enterprise solution affords the ability to interact with 3D images of products, business information, and facilities in order to understand what is being developed, extract information from it, and accelerate decision making within and across the full range of business domains. Decisions are based on more perceptive views of relationships across the business, which facilitates optimized productivity and improved product quality.
