Runge Announces Its Participation in SAP EcoHub Solution Marketplace
Monday, June 29th, 2009
Runge Ltd (RUL), a leading mining technology services company, announce its participation in the SAP® EcoHub solution marketplace. This community-powered solution marketplace makes it easier for customers to discover, evaluate and purchase partner solutions – such as Runge’s Mining Dynamics Short-Term Mine Scheduling (xSTMS) composite application – that complement SAP applications.
The SAP EcoHub provides customers access to complementary solutions and offerings that integrate most effectively with their installation of SAP solutions. It leverages SAP’s comprehensive ecosystem, where customers and partners can connect. The SAP EcoHub integrates community input, user feedback, ratings and partner demos, enabling a more educated and intelligent selection of solutions.
Runge’s Mining Dynamics is listed at https://ecohub.sdn.sap.com/irj/ecohub/solutions/xSTMS. Resources available for download from the SAP EcoHub site include a Runge Mining Dynamics xSTMS summary, certification details of xSTMS 1.0, and the ability to request a live demo or contact from the Runge team.
“SAP EcoHub is an online solution marketplace that gives SAP’s customers access to tools to maximise efficiency and profitability,” said Gary Gibson, Global Alliance Manager for Runge. “Successful mining operations depend on the availability and reliability of data in order to make critical, every day decisions. Because of the complexity of mining data and the spatial characteristics associated with it, rapid universal access to trusted and accurate information has traditionally been difficult. Mining Dynamics is designed to address this. We are delighted to be part of SAP EcoHub and feel that our inclusion further deepens our partnership with SAP.”
Mining Dynamics, of which the Short-Term Mine Scheduling application is a part, provides the unique ability to reliably integrate business processes, information management, and operational data with enterprise systems. It allows data from mine plans to automatically interface with corporate enterprise systems and accounting packages from vendors such as SAP. This capability provides management with real-time and up-to-date operational information, which is critical for decision making.
In addition, Runge is an SAP software solution partner in the SAP PartnerEdge™ program. Through the program, partners work closely with SAP to develop and certify the technical integration of their solutions with SAP software. Integrated partner applications extend, complement and add value to SAP solutions, thereby helping mutual customers more successfully meet business needs and drive strong results.
Runge’s xSTMS solution version 1.0 is a certified composite application integrating with the SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) application. It extends and adds value to a mining organisation’s SAP solutions.
