During the last decades, many companies have worked intensively on the expansion and continuous optimisation of their business process environment and their mapping in operative systems such as ERP, CRM, …. In many companies, the topic of data quality and data flow has not been established in a sustainable manner from a professional, organisational and technical point of view. However, a reliable exchange of information – within the company or with external partners (e.g. customers, suppliers, …) – is only possible with high-quality data. Thus, an efficient data flow is a critical success factor for process efficiency and represents a essential foundation for an integral support of business cases. Just as ‘data flow before material flow’ applies in logistics, ‘data flow before activity flow/processes’ applies to business processes in general.
