SAP Extended Warehouse Management

Optimized by IBM DB2 and IBM Power7

The challenge

A challenged logistics environment
Businesses that have an existing warehouse management solution may find it capable of meeting the historical needs of the business, but unable to adapt to current and future requirements. The SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) application, optimized by IBM® DB2® and IBM Power7®, can help you meet this challenge with better risk management and improved inventory visibility, so you can adapt to customer expectations—at lower cost.

The solution

A modern warehouse management system
SAP EWM is a state-of-the art, best-in-class warehouse management application that allows high warehouse productivity and efficiency. You can integrate the warehouse management processes with other key logistics and fulfillment processes, like transportation management, global trade management, available-to-promise checks and event management.

IBM and SAP can help you modernize your warehouse management system with a cost-effective deployment model. With deployment by IBM as a natural footprint expansion for SAP customers, SAP EWM addresses the technology obsolescence challenge IT departments face in the area of warehouse management. It also addresses the business-side challenges faced by supply chain professionals by extending supply chain operation capabilities beyond company boundaries and enabling collaboration.
