Today, many companies are either developing or considering the introduction of SCM (Supply Chain Management) systems. This kind of development effort requires a many-sided knowledge of both the business processes and the IT systems of interacting parties. Based on our experience gained in two projects, Gnosis-VF and Dedemas, we present results from two different case studies. The case studies indicate how and adequate integration of IT systems enables and enhancement of business processes in distributed and networked organizations. Both projects also contained an evaluation phase in order to estimate how and to what extent SCM applications produce actual business benefits.
