The consumer changes, the market changes and now logistics is changing too.
Logistics has become a growing and increasingly complex market for customer-specific services. It is focused on low-cost, flexible, individual and short term available logistics services. To meet this demand, logistics service providers need an IT environment that matches these needs – the logistics mall.
Already today the logistics mall has the ability to invoke its infrastructure browser-based to its logistics users. Without additional technical infrastructure, such as Citrix, the user can book the complete product range on a per user basis. – paying only for what he actually needs. The individual software modules can communicate using a converter module not only with each other but also with the outside world. The data are proven located in German data centers.
Cloud computing based, the logistics mall allows IT-based logistics “out of the power supply”. The operator (Logata Digital Solutions GmbH) and the participating Fraunhofer institutes gives service-oriented cloud computing a worlwide unique meaning. The user can focus on his core business, whilst the logistics mall will do the rest.
