This project aims to develop an integrated system with support tools for the activities of planning and managing business at the strategic, tactical and operational level. The objective is to elaborate a system which permits the complete integration of these activities, filling a space that exists in the information technology market. SIGE aims to establish a management environment which allows the decision maker to monitor and simulate the evolution of competitive scenarios and the performance indicators of the business, in a dynamic way and in real time, on the basis of information that is both internal and external to the organization. The system should also act as a facilitator in the process of establishing strategies and concepts of management (for example the balanced scorecard), in the presentation of best business practice (templates and role models) and in the management of strategic knowledge in the organization. SIGE should operate integrating the concurrent information of management systems, of management information, of the support tools for strategic planning and market information, and the other systems and databases within the organization. It should support the setting up of a strategic/ managerial management cockpit which allows the decision maker to monitor and simulate the behavior of indicators and business scenarios. (AU)
