A2A, B2B, API-management, governance, maintainability and security were key capabilities for CCEP integration platform as was flexible licensing options to support both on premise and cloud deployment.
“Total integration is fundamental to successful digitalization”, said Software CEO Sanjay Brahmawar. “We see use of an holistic integration platform as way to deliver new capability to our business and support our focus to deliver outstanding customer service”, said Mark Raphael, Vice President, Business Process and Technology for CCEP.
CCEP has been created to compete more effectively and drive growth across developed European markets with a world-class production, sales and distribution platform. The Enterprise Integration Platform has been identified as a key enabler for the future CCEP digital strategy.
This first digitalization program consists of three project work streams:
- The Integration Platform Foundation
