OPS are the set of softwares meant for managing the operations of a business.
Business operations are those activities involved in the running of a business for the purpose of producing value for the stakeholders. Compare business processes. The outcome of business operations is the harvesting of value from assets owned by a business. Assets can be either physical or intangible. An example of value derived from a physical asset like a building is rent. An example of value derived from an intangible asset like an idea is a royalty. The effort involved in "harvesting" this value is what constitutes business operations.
Business operations encompasses three fundamental management imperatives that collectively aim to maximize value harvested from business assets (this has often been referred to as "sweating the assets"):
All three imperatives are mutually dependent. The following basic tenets illustrate this interdependency:
The business model of a business describes the means by which the three management imperatives are achieved. In this sense, business operations is the execution of the business model.
The softawres developed at Avnate cater to all such needs as encapsulated above - so that the client business heads towards "seamless performance".
