Modern enterprises need to be agile and to dynamically support decision making processes at several levels. In order to be able to take efficient decisions and manage the resources in an optimal way, a direct link to the timely provision of information residing in all layers between the enterprise services and the resources needs to be established. This increases visibility at a very discrete level and can provide insights on how specific problems can be avoided or tackled.
