Think of it this way: in the same way that Audi and Mercedes-Benz reached out to Porsche engine consultants to design the Audi RS2 and Mercedes E500 cars, our customers come to us to design not-yet-seen, ground-breaking SAP eSOA solu- tions, innovative Software-as-a-Service solutions, globally first SAP Global Trade Services solutions, and cutting edge Mobile Asset Management solutions. Tokyo is the #1 home to Fortune 500 company headquarters - more than the #2 and #3 cities combined. Founded in 2006 by a team of ex-SAP corporate development professionals. This team of SAP alumni and top performers was responsible at SAP for the first patents and incubation of SAP products in the space of the Internet Business Framework, Auto-ID (RFID), NetWeaver Mobile, Mobile Business (i-mode, Direct Store Delivery, Mobile Asset Management, Mobile Sales), and the strategic Man- agement Cockpit (part of SAP-SEM). Vigience today services customers in the USA, Europe, New Zealand and Japan through its two locations, Japan and Switzerland.

On another level, we are also hard-core engineers who love to solve complex IT problems — which we take as good oppor- tunities to demonstrate our differentiating capabilities. The projects that Vigience has been involved in so far can roughly be categorized in three focus areas: Software-as-a-Service - We help our clients to design and launch innovative SaaS solutions SAP Expert Consulting - Previous SAP architects and engineers consult on SAP products Solutions-as-a-Service - Some of our consulting solutions are now available as products Vigience enables the New Zealand As Enterprise Archi- Government to implement a world- tects, Vigience pro- wide unique property inspection and vides advisory ser- maintenance process based on SAP vices ranging from software. ...more on page 10 architecture, project management to solution prototyping.

This can mean integrating external software seamlessly with SAP or even port- ing the entire solution to the SAP NetWeaver technology stack. Reference project: ISV SOFTWARE PACKAGE PORT TO SAP NETWEAVER Vigience worked with Dexterra, a leading provider of TelCo mobility solutions, to de- vise an SAP integration and alignment strategy as well as secure a coveted SAP certification for them. The solution included a SAP J2EE server port and a UI redevelop- ment in the SAP Enterprise Portal. Reference project: “SAAS BUSINESS PLATFORM” DESIGN & BUILDING Vigience works with a Fortune 500 service provider to build next-generation “software-as-a-service” (SaaS) solutions based on Salesforce.com and SAP for the Enterprise market. The applications themselves are SaaS solution mash-ups with seamless SAP-Salesforce.com process integration, and new business proc- esses are composed in Salesforce.com based on functions and data from the SAP core. * Graphic depicts a sample business processes 5 Assess, Advise, and Provide Solutions As Enterprise Architects, Vigience provides independent expert advisory services ranging from architecture definition to risk management and solution prototyping. Reference project: VODAFONE APPLICATION SERVICE Vigience provides conceptual advice to Vodafone for the Vodafone Application Service (VAS). As a certified Vodafone partner, Vigience implements several of these concepts as real-life solutions that are sold by Vodafone to their customers. Reference project: IN-HOUSE SAAS SOLUTION BASED ON SAP A Fortune 100 CPG company in the USA set itself the goal to become a world-class fran- chise towards its retailers. To achieve that, it needed help designing an in-house Soft- ware-as-a-Service (SaaS) of- fering that it would then offer to its hundreds of affiliated distributors. As strategy advi- sor to the Director of IT, Vigience visits potential target users and vendors in order to assess the technological alter- natives. Vigience outputs in- clude mutually agreed upon assessment criteria and re- sults, unified architecture comparisons and detail reports that culminate in the “Vigience quadrant” for decision making. 6 SAP Global Trade Services Reference project: GTS ROLLOUT IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY IN 3 COUNTRIES Vigience helps SAP to enable one of the world- largest exporters of food products to automate its electronic communication with customs authorities all over the world (one custom declaration every two minutes). The solu- tion is based on SAP Global Trade Services 7.2 and enables automated change processing from feeder systems to the customs authorities, tak- ing into account other processes such as Letter- of-Credit and food au- thority processes. Vigience Products - SAP GTS Vigience Template for SAP GTS Change Processing As of version 8.0, SAP GTS provides a change framework to process change from feeder systems automatically. Automated change processing that results in EDI change messages is mandated or at least desired by several national customs authorities such as those in New Zealand, Australia and the USA. As the global first implementer of this change framework (piloted already in GTS 7.2), Vigience provides a template implementation for automated change processing. The template will dramatically lower the cost of enabling this feature in SAP GTS. 7 Products - SAP Mobile Asset Management Vigience templates for SAP MAM cut time, cost, and risk from your implementation project and improve user productivity via unique client application improvements. SAP MAM depicted running on a laptop (also runs on PDAs) Template 1: VIGIENCE TEMPLATE IMPLEMENTATION FOR SAP MAM The Vigience SAP MAM implementation package saves time and cost, both in proof-of-concept implementa- tions as well as in full production standard SAP MAM implementations. The benefits start with reduced im- plementation time due to the greatly reduced number of adjustments necessary within the project. Template 2: VIGIENCE SAP MAM CLIENT PERFORMANCE PACK Vigience provides a new MAM UI layer and a process model to greatly improve end user experience both in terms of application response times as well as process flow while preserving the SAP MAM business logic. In addition, the template provides missing functionality such as inspection questionnaires that can be con- figured by the business users on the fly and deployed over the air.

This gives Vigience consultants a certain gut feeling for what goes wrong when a parameter setting results in unexpected changes as well as a very strong network into SAP corporate development to help resolve issues and provide the best service possible. #2 - Independent advice Vigience will always take our clients’ side and provide independent advice - even if that means we have to pick the occasional argument to keep software package providers, such as SAP, “honest”. In all cases, we will tell you the truth and give you insights from our broad experience implementing complex NetWeaver based solutions with many Fortune 1000 companies. We will do that without fear or favour, and help you extract more value out of your SAP investment as well as prevent costly mistakes. #3 - Vigience consultants and projects are self-managed Our clients just tell us what they wish they had. Vigience then guides them through the rest of the process, starting with defining written goals to monthly deliverables in an agile development process through to en- suring a successful go live and ongoing support (and, just sometimes, Vigience consultants throw in some innovative process-improvement along the way for free). #4 - Hiring Vigience costs less In most projects to date, we offered our services overall at less cost than the competition (offshore compe- tition included). The secret ingredient here is highly efficient execution that reduces the main project cost factor significantly compared to the competition - namely, days invoiced! When quoting fixed price projects, we have yet to be beaten on price. #5 - Vigience consultants are very quick learners One of the reasons why Vigience is able to service so many different companies in such a short period of time is because we are very quick learners and are able to master our clients’ desired software environ- ment in days, not months. Our clients love that because hiring Vigience can help get things done and/or fixed in a short period of time. This has given Vigience the image of the fire-fighters to go to when the flames get too hot with several of our repeat clients.
