Schon lange verfolgen nicht nur integrierte Informationssysteme, sondern auch Managementansätze wie Time Based Competition, Durchlaufzeitminimierung, Quick Response oder Efficient Consumer Response (s. Kap. 1) Zeitnähe als höchstes Ziel. Der Grund dafür liegt in der Annahme, dass Zeitnähe ein einfach messbarer Indikator für Prozessqualität, Kosten- und Wettbewerbsvorteil ist: Schnelle Prozesse sind bessere Prozesse. Zeitnähe bedeutet, dass der ‚Point of Action’ (POA) alle relevanten, an allen Orten der internen und externen Wertschöpfungskette (,Point of Creation’, POC) vorhandenen Informationen nutzt, bevor er eine Aktion auslöst.

Ein weiteres Merkmal von Echtzeit-Unternehmen ist, dass sie über Kooperationsprozesse zusammenarbeiten. Dazu vereinbaren sie gemeinsam mit Kunden und Lieferanten Workflows, um die Abfolge der gemeinsamen Aufgaben zu definieren. Dabei sind standardisierte Abläufe wie etwa die kooperative Auftragsabwicklung (s. Kap. 4) analog den betriebswirtschaftlichen Prozessen in ERPSystemen zunehmend in Standardsoftware implementiert. Beispiele sind das Extended Order Management der SAP, TradeStream von Optum oder die Order Management Solution von i2 [Newton 2001, 9].
