What is “Mission Critical”The new essential functions
What is “mission critical” today? With the progressive digitalization of processes, new contexts have been added to the areas traditionally considered essential to the functioning of the business – supply chain, production and logistics. Today, Enterprise Resource Planning platforms are available to the market, which include in a single application environment all the tools needed to optimize the value chain, even in advanced scenarios such as omnichannel operations, which are highly dependent on the collection and availability of up-to-date data.
Sector by sectorThe challenges of the productive world
Maintaining maximum efficiency along a series of processes that continue to intersect, becoming increasingly complex, is the new challenge for companies belonging to sectors that are facing the challenge of digitalization and the phygital dimension: Fashion, Luxury, Manufacturing and Pharma. The mission-critical platforms on which the market players’ systems run must offer optimal performance for each workflow, regardless of vendor, while reducing pressure on the IT infrastructure and maintaining sufficient elasticity to scale as the needs of the business change.

With S/4HANA, SAP has created a mission-critical platform that goes well beyond the concept of ERP architecture: thanks to its modularity, it is one of the few software programs that can cover almost all the needs of companies in a wide variety of verticals. By freeing itself from the constraints of relational databases and focusing on in-memory technology, it has created a new paradigm that disrupts the traditional logic of data access, giving companies that have adopted it extraordinary agility.
Oracle’s most popular mission critical platforms are JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and E-Business Suite. While the former is an ERP suite with more than 80 application modules that is fully integrated with a wide choice of development and database options, the latter is essential for executing strategic business operations.
