Create Beautiful WordPress Pages with Optimized Images Using Elementor and ImageEngine

WordPress powers nearly 40% of all websites, thanks to its commitment to making publication possible for everyone, for free. Combined with premium plugins and themes, it’s possibly the ultimate tool for building attractive, unique, and feature-rich websites without any coding or design experience.

However, you do pay the price for this experience, with WordPress and its third-party products not always being built for performance – whether it’s page loading times or SEO.

Image optimization is a particularly big concern. Images are one, if not the largest, contributors to page weight, and it’s growing significantly by the year. So, while images are crucial for beautifying your website pages, they are also one of the biggest factors slowing it down.

In terms of image optimization, WordPress+Elementor brings very little to the table. WordPress core now comes with both responsive syntax and lazy-loading. Elementor itself also only comes with responsive syntax out-of-the-box. However, these are baseline techniques for image optimization that will deliver the bare minimum of improvements.

This means that, while Elementor makes it easy to design sweet-looking WordPress pages (with tonnes of creatively utilized images), you will probably pay the price when it comes to performance. But don’t worry. We will show you how to dramatically improve web performance by over 30 points on scoring tools like Google’s PageSpeed Insight

Why Optimize Your Elementor Images with ImageEngine?

In general, image CDNs use various techniques to get image payloads as small as possible and deliver image content faster, all while minimizing the visual impact. ImageEngine is no different in that regard.

Firstly, ImageEngine, when used in auto mode, will apply all of the following optimizations that web performance tools like Google’s PageSpeed Insight recommend. For example:

  • Properly size images – ImageEngine automatically resizes images for optimal size-to-quality ratios depending on the screen size of the user device. ImageEngine supports Retina devices.
  • Efficiently encode images – Applies different rates of compression depending on the PPI of the user devices. For example, ImageEngine adapts and more aggressively compresses on higher PPI devices without losing visual quality.
  • Next-gen format conversion – Automatically converts images to the optimal next-gen format according to the browser, device, or OS. ImageEngine can convert images to WebP or JPEG-2000 as well as GIFs to MP4 or WebP.  AVIF is also available in a manual directive mode.
  • Strip unnecessary metadata

While these features are standard for most image CDNs, ImageEngine is unique for its use of WURFL device detection. This gives ImageEngine much deeper insight into the user device accessing a website page and, by extension, its images. Using the screen size, resolution, PPI, etc., ImageEngine can make more intelligent decisions regarding how to reduce image payloads while maintaining visual quality.

This is why ImageEngine brands itself as an “intelligent, device-aware” image CDN and why it can reduce image payloads by as much as 80% (if not more).

ImageEngine also provides a proprietary CDN service to accelerate image delivery. The CDN consists of 20 globally positioned PoPs with the device-aware logic built-in. This allows you to deliver image content faster in different regions while also serving images straight from the cache with a ~98% hit ratio.

ImageEngine also supports Chrome’s save data setting. If someone has a slow connection or has activated this setting, ImageEngine will automatically compress image payloads even more, to provide a better user experience on slower connections.

How to Use ImageEngine with WordPress and Elementor

If you’re using WordPress and Elementor, then chances are you want to spend as little time on development and other technicalities as possible. Luckily, ImageEngine is a highly streamlined tool that requires little to no effort to integrate or maintain with a WordPress site.

Assuming you already have a WordPress website with Elementor, here are the step-by-step instructions to use ImageEngine:

  1. Go to ImageEngine.io and sign up for a 30-day free trial.
  2. Provide ImageEngine with the URL of the website you want to optimize.
  3. Create an account (or sign up with your existing Google, GitHub, or ScientiaMobile account).
  4. Provide ImageEngine with the current origin where your images are served from. If you upload images to your WordPress website as usual, then that means providing your WordPress website address again.
  5. Finally, ImageEngine will generate an ImageEngine delivery address for you from where your optimized images will be served. This typically takes the form of: {randomstring}.cdn.imgeng.in. You can change the delivery address to something more meaningful from the dashboard, such as myimages.cdn.imgeng.in.

Now, to set up ImageEngine on your WordPress website:

  1. Go to the WordPress dashboard and head to Plugins -> Add New.
  2. Search for the “Image CDN” plugin by ImageEngine. When you find it, install and activate the plugin.

  1. Go to Settings -> Image CDN. OK, so this is the ImageEngine plugin dashboard. To configure it, all you need to do is:

a. Copy the delivery address you got from ImageEngine above and paste it in the “Delivery Address” field.

b. Tick the “Enable ImageEngine” box.

That’s literally it. All images that you use on your WordPress/Elementor pages should now be served via the ImageEngine CDN already optimized. 

ImageEngine is largely a “set-it-and-forget-it” tool. It will provide the best results in auto mode with no user input. However, you can override some of ImageEngine’s settings from the dashboard or by using URL directives to manipulate images.

For example, you can resize an image to 300 px width and convert it to WebP by changing the src attribute like this:

<img src="https://myimages.cdn.imgeng.in/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/banner-logo.png?imgeng=/w_300/f_webp">

However, use this only when necessary, as doing so will limit ImageEngine’s adaptability under different conditions.

What Improvement Can You Expect?

Let’s see what results you can expect from using an image CDN to improve your page loading times.

For this, I created two identical WordPress pages using the Elementor theme. The one page purely relied on WordPress and Elementor, while I installed and set up ImageEngine for the other. The page had some galleries as well as full-size images:

The pages used many high-quality images, as you might expect to find on a professional photography gallery, photography blog, stock photo website, large e-commerce site, etc. I then ran page performance tests using Chrome’s built-in Lighthouse audit tool, choosing scores representing the average results I got for each page.

For thoroughness, I tested both the mobile and desktop performance. However, I focused on the mobile results as these showcase more of the image CDN’s responsive capabilities. Mobile traffic also accounts for the majority share of internet traffic and seems to be the focus for search engines going forward.

So, first of all, let’s see the mobile score for the page without ImageEngine:

As you can see, there was definitely a struggle to deliver the huge amount of image content. Google has shown that 53% of mobile users abandon a page that takes more than 3s to load. So, clearly, this page has major concerns when it comes to user experience and retaining traffic.

The desktop version fared much better, although it still left much to be desired:

When digging into the reasons behind the slowdown, we can identify the following problems:

Most of the issues related somehow to the size and weight of the images. As you can see, Lighthouse identified a 3.8 MB payload while the total image payload of the entire page was close to 40 MB.

Now, let’s see what kind of improvement ImageEngine can make to these issues by looking at the mobile score first:

So, as you can see, a major improvement of 30 points over the standard WordPress/Elementor page. The time to load images was cut down by roughly 80% across the key core web vital metrics, such as FCP, LCP, and the overall Speed Index.

In fact, we just reached that critical 3s milestone for the FCP (the largest element on the visible area of the page when it initially loads), which creates the impression that the page has finished loading and will help you retain a lot of mobile traffic.

The desktop score was also much higher, and there was further improvement across the key performance metrics.

If we look at the performance problems still present, we see that images are almost completely removed as a concern. We also managed to bring down the initial 3.8 MB payload to around 1.46 MB, which is a ~62% reduction:

An unfortunate side effect of using WordPress and WordPress plugins is that you will almost inevitably face a performance hit due to all the additional JavaScript and CSS. This is part of the reason why we didn’t see even larger improvements. That’s the price you pay for the convenience of using these tools.

That being said, the more images you have on your pages, and the larger their sizes, the more significant the improvement will be.

It’s also worth noting that lazy-loaded images were loaded markedly faster with ImageEngine if you quickly scroll down the page, again making for an improved user experience.

Thanks to its intelligent image compression, there was also no visible loss in image quality, as you can see from this comparison:

Conclusion

So, as you can see, we can achieve significant performance improvements on image-heavy websites by using the ImageEngine image CDN, despite inherent performance issues using a CMS. This will translate to happier users, better search engine rankings, and an overall more successful website.

The best part is that ImageEngine stays true to the key principles of WordPress. You don’t have to worry about any of the nuts and bolts on the inside. And, ImageEngine will automatically adjust automation strategies as needed, future-proofing you against having to occasionally rework images for optimization.

How To Power Through Designer Apathy

Sometimes you just don’t give a damn anymore. Possibly the only thing worse than designer’s block is designer’s apathy: that sinking feeling you get when you realize that you just don’t care about this particular piece of work anymore is disheartening.

The dread of going back to it is paralyzing.

There are many reasons you can stop caring about your work. Maybe you’ve just done the same thing too many times in a row. Maybe your client is insisting on asking for things you know won’t work for them. Maybe something much more important just happened in your life, and you’ve got bigger things to worry about. You could be discouraged by the apparent ‘sameness’ of bandwagon-hopping designs.

I’ve been not caring about my work ever since I was first asked to pick up my toys

Whatever the reason, we all experience times when we know exactly what we have to do… we just don’t care.

I’m something of an expert on this phenomenon. I’ve been not caring about my work ever since I was first asked to pick up my toys. Worse, I have the attention span of a goldfish, even now.

Web design is different. When I discovered it, it was new, exciting, and I could do it on the computer. I loved it, and I still do. Writing code that makes design happen in a browser window will never get old for me.

But even so, sometimes, a particular project will make me want to throw up my hands in exasperation and play video games ‘til Judgement Day. I’d welcome Skynet with tacos and RPGs.

So what do we do about it? First, answer this question: who is the project for?

For A Client

If the project is for a client, it’s just gotta get done. There’s no way around that. You made a commitment. You’re going to follow through and give it your best possible effort because you’re a professional. Anything less would be wrong.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to just power through with only coffee and misery for company. There are things you can do to make the work easier on yourself. The less miserable you are while you work, the better quality you can deliver.

For Yourself

There are a couple of schools of thought here. The first is that it’s perfectly fine to give up on personal projects when you stop caring. I mean, it’s your free time. Why spend it on something you don’t care about?

On the other hand, is a commitment made to yourself any less important than a commitment made to someone else? Many people seem to be perfectly fine with breaking promises to themselves when they’d never willingly do that to a client. Is that wrong?

I usually buy myself a drink and forgive myself, but it’s worth thinking about.

The deciding factor for me is whether my personal project will have any sort of lasting benefit. If whatever I’m designing, writing, or making counts as a long-term investment in my career or quality of life, then it absolutely has to get done, even when I’m not feeling it. Otherwise, I call it a learning experience and move on.

How To Power Through

So, for whatever reason — whether because you have to, or you want to — you’re gonna power through. Here are five ways to do it in style:

1. Start

The hardest part of doing work you don’t care about is starting. This is when you’ll be tempted to procrastinate until the last minute. Try not to.

2. Switch To A Different Part Of The Project

If you can safely (without causing problems) work on a different aspect of the project for a while, try that. The mere variety, the break from the work in front of you before, can boost your morale.

Indeed, working on a different part of the project can give you ideas of getting the most troubling bits done faster or more easily.

3. Do Something Old In A New Way

This one has its pros and cons.

Pro: You can look at this project as a chance to try out a new grid framework, script, code editor, or another tool of some kind. Injecting the process of discovery into an otherwise boring project can make it a lot more fun and even make you look forward to working on it.

Con: You’ll need to plan for extra hours and use some version control; because bringing a new tool or process into play is almost guaranteed to make something interesting go wrong — when this happens, you probably shouldn’t bill the client for the extra hours spent on StackOverflow.

4) Make Like Aziz Ansari And Treat Yo’self

Celebrate the milestones of your project. Don’t celebrate with video games if you need to get any more work done that day. That can go very wrong. But do celebrate. Reward yourself because you’re doing something difficult.

Have a snack. Give yourself a round of applause. Whatever it takes, make yourself look forward.

5) Outsource It

As a last resort, you can always outsource the project to someone else. Just make sure it’s someone you can trust to deliver the same quality of work you would normally provide yourself. Make sure to check it over before handing it off to a client.

Alternatively, you could just outsource the bits of the work that you don’t like. Either way, this is a risky strategy because whoever you outsource to might experience delays or, ironically, not care about the project.

Conclusion

You can do it! I believe in you. The really, really boring projects can seem like huge sinkholes of sadness, but they don’t last forever.

How To Propagate Context Information Throw Spring Batch


Introduction

While developing applications using Spring batch, especially in a micro-service project, we sometimes face one or most of the following cases:

  • The necessity of getting the security context inside the batch items to call methods that require authorizations inside the same micro-service or perform remote processing by calling other micro-services using Feign Client (HTTP) or  Spring Cloud Stream (broker like Kafka, RabbitMq …)
  • Propagating Sleuth trace Id and span Id in order to enhance logs traceability inside all the application components including other micro-services so the trace will not be lost if we use Job.
  • Getting the connected user Locale (i18n) in order to generate internationalized output otherwise, all the Job outputs will be generated in the default server language.
  • Retrieving objects stored inside Mapped Diagnostic Context  (MDC) for tracing purposes.

The following schema illustrates remote calls that can be performed in a micro-service-based application and the context information that String Batch items can propagate.

3 Essential Design Trends, May 2021

Spring and fresh designs are in the air. This month, it’s obvious that designers are feeling creative with new and interesting concepts that range from a new style for cards, homepage experimentation with multiple entry points or calls to action, and risky typography options.

Here’s what’s trending in design this month.

1. “Flat” Cards

Card-style design elements that allow users to click through to other content aren’t new, but the design of these cards is fresh and interesting.

Rather than more heavily designed cards with shadows and layers of content, flat styles are trending. Expect this trend to explode thanks to usage by Google for a shopping experience page.

The Google example below is interesting because Google’s Material Design guidelines are what helped card-style elements grow in popularity previously. However, those cards did include more layers, color options, buttons inside the cards, and shadows.

Today’s trending cards are completely flat. And beautiful.

Each of these websites does it in a slightly different way.

Heartcore, a consumer technology VC company, uses a series of flat cards as a navigation element to help users find their way through the website. Each features a bright color background with an illustration and a simple text block.

Each card has a nice hover state where only the illustration zooms inside the card frame. This is an interesting effect because it is exactly the opposite of the previous iteration of cards, which zoomed the entire card as a hover state.

Google Shopping uses that whole card bounce hover state (plus a not-so-flat shadow) for each card. The initial design is sleek with the pairing of white and image cards with simple text in each. You are enticed to click around to see what happens.

Click on Greece is a travel website design that uses simple cards with a minimal color and text overlay. The consistency of these cards makes the design pop and the beauty of the images draw you in. Each card also has a hover state with a darker color mask to guide navigation and make text elements easier to read.

2. Multiple Homepage Entry Points

For a long time, designers have been working off the philosophy that the homepage should have one direct entry point, creating a direct funnel for the user experience.

These designs throw that idea out the window, with multiple entry points and click elements.

You can think of it as the “create your own adventure” option for these designs.

It can be a risky concept if you are diving into analytics to pay attention to user paths. You want to make sure you know what choices users are making so that you can help them on the journey to the content and information that you want them to get from the visit.

But this type of design scheme does feel somewhat personalized, putting the user in more control.

Parcouse Epicuriens uses three flat card-style elements to help users pick what they want to see from the home page. There’s no other button or direct call to action, which is somewhat uncommon in today’s website design landscape. Users have to pick from one of the cards, scroll, or enter using the hamburger menu icon.

Tasty Find uses search options to help users start their journey. What’s interesting here are the choices – search for the food you want, pick something random, or (in the small print) find even more options. Users get three choices to begin their journey with the website.

What’s interesting is how simple this complex user journey looks. The design is easy to digest, but so many options could overwhelm users. This is one of those situations where you have to watch return search data and information and weigh the risk versus the reward of so much choice. It’ll be interesting to watch this design over time and see if the options decrease in number.

Accord also has several levels of user engagement opportunity. Option 1: Every block contains a click element. Option 2: Use the search at the top to narrow choices. This is an interesting configuration as the homepage for an e-commerce website because they get right to product selection and shopping without a softer sell or introduction.

3. Risky Typography

Typographic risk has been an ongoing theme for a little while. Designers are embracing experimental and novelty typefaces to stand out in the cluttered website space. Sometimes it works beautifully, and other times, it can fall short.

Here, each of these trending website designs uses a risky typography treatment. The risks are a little different for each design, from readability to comprehension to font delivery.

How Many Plants has duel typography risks: A funky typeface paired with odd word breaks. Interestingly enough, readability isn’t as big of a concern as you might think. This is likely because there aren’t many words, and they are short. Plus, the imagery ties in nicely.

Do you notice a similarity between How Many Plants and The Great Lake? The typography has the same style with a blocky, slab, sans serif with alternating thick and thin strokes. (It’s the same font.)

The risk in the typography design for The Great Lake isn’t in the homepage display, although you might wonder what the design is about. It is carrying this font throughout the design. While it looks great large and with only a few words, it gets a little more difficult the more you see it. This type of mental reading weight can be difficult for visitors over time, creating an element of risk.

Zmaslo uses an interesting typeface with a liquid effect on top of an unusual word. That combination of text elements makes you think hard to read the homepage, despite its neat looks. The risk here is weighing visual interest against comprehension. Depending on the audience, this risk can be worth the chance.

Conclusion

Spring always seems to be that time of year where designers start thinking about new, fresh design elements. That might explain some of the “riskier” design choices and experimentation here.

Regardless of the motivation, it is always fun to see the creative stretch happen. It can be even more interesting to see what elements from these trends continue to grow in the coming months.

Intermarché choisit les solutions SAP Ariba pour optimiser sa chaîne de valeur et répondre aux attentes des consommateurs

Intermarché, enseigne alimentaire du Groupement Les Mousquetaires s’appuie sur les solutions de procurement Ariba de SAP pour assurer la fluidité et l’efficacité de sa chaine d’approvisionnement et de distribution, afin de répondre au mieux aux enjeux contemporains et aux attentes toujours grandissantes des consommateurs. Grâce à un outil intégré, les différents corps de métiers peuvent collaborer via une seule interface et selon des processus communs, ce qui permet une vision globale sur l’ensemble des flux et un suivi de tous les indicateurs de performance, favorisant la prise de décision et une réponse rapide et fiable aux besoins de l’entreprise et de ses clients.

Le contexte de crise sanitaire et les différentes formes de restrictions de mobilité qui ont traversé le territoire cette dernière année ont montré combien il était important pour une entreprise d’assurer la solidité et la fiabilité de sa chaîne d’approvisionnement.

L’épidémie de la Covid-19 a également accéléré les évolutions des comportements des consommateurs, et il tient à cœur à Intermarché de répondre présent face à ces nouveaux enjeux, c’est pourquoi le groupe a opéré sa transformation. La digitalisation de la vie professionnelle s’accompagne aussi de la digitalisation des modes de consommation, avec un recours plus fréquent au e-commerce. Les enjeux sociétaux et environnementaux font désormais partie intégrante de l’équation lors des choix de consommation des clients. L’hygiène et les impératifs sanitaires ont été exacerbés par la crise. Suite à la crise économique qui résulte de l’épidémie, les consommateurs sont plus que jamais à la recherche de prix très attractifs.

Une solution pour assurer la bonne traçabilité des produits marques de distributeurs et répondre mieux aux attentes des consommateurs.

La stratégie d’Intermarché repose sur six piliers. Le relai « Producteurs & Commerçants », qui est l’ADN d’Intermarché, implique de disposer d’un outil industriel efficient et réactif. Le retravail constant et l’optimisation des recettes, afin de répondre aux attentes des consommateurs désireux de manger mieux. Communiquer sur les avantages des produits Intermarché pour les consommateurs, et leur apporter toutes les informations qu’ils recherchent. Des activations promotionnelles pour répondre aux attentes des clients sur les prix des produits. Des prix bas toute l’année et une forte compétitivité prix, surtout au regard de la crise économique que nous traversons. Une transformation pour plus d’agilité, afin de s’adapter au monde en constante évolution.

La qualité de l’alimentation est plus que jamais au cœur des préoccupations des consommateurs, notamment via les gammes de produits bio. Les solutions Procurement SAP Ariba permettent à Intermarché d’assurer la bonne traçabilité de ses produits, et de répondre aux attentes des clients désireux d’en savoir plus sur la qualité et l’origine des produits qu’ils consomment. Pour assurer cette traçabilité, Intermarché peut s’appuyer sur la méthode et l’efficacité de l’outil Ariba. Celui-ci permet de suivre et analyser les données, afin de piloter et optimiser la chaine d’approvisionnement en fonction des demandes des consommateurs. Enfin, la fluidité des informations entre les collaborateurs et les fournisseurs de production est assurée par l’intégration à cet outil unique.

Une transformation engagée grâce à un outil unique adapté à l’ensemble des profils et corps de métier.

Pour faire face à la croissance du nombre d’appels d’offre et du nombre de fournisseurs, la complexité grandissante des références et l’impératif de toujours réduire le time to market pour répondre aux attentes des consommateurs, il était crucial pour Intermarché de pouvoir s’appuyer sur un outil intégré de pilotage, c’est pourquoi le groupe a choisi les solutions Achats SAP Ariba.

Le programme de transformation d’Intermarché se base sur cinq objectifs :

  1. Améliorer la qualité et l’échange de l’information entre les services et avec le fournisseur.
  2. Disposer de l’agilité nécessaire pour anticiper les événements et problématiques, tels que les renouvellements d’appels d’offres etc.
  3. Homogénéiser les processus d’approvisionnement.
  4. Piloter tous les services et processus, et mettre en place des KPIs.
  5. Améliorer le time to market; les distributeurs producteurs se doivent d’être rapides pour répondre immédiatement aux demandes des consommateurs.

Proposant une vaste variété de produits en marques de distributeurs (frais, épicerie, alimentaire hors import), les 59 usines intégrées au Groupement Les Mousquetaires et les 600 fournisseurs d’Intermarché collaborent au travers d’un outil unique, pour gérer les achats, identifier et anticiper les besoins, suivre l’historique, simplifier les appels d’offre, piloter l’entreprise via des processus homogènes et des indicateurs de performance communs.

Aujourd’hui, les collaborateurs Intermarché se sont approprié l’outil, et l’implantation d’Ariba est une réussite. La collaboration est facilitée par l’intégration sur un outil unique des différents profils et corps de métier qui interviennent tout au long de la chaine de valeurs. Le time to market a été multiplié par 2,25, avec un time to market moyen passé de 18 mois à 8 mois pour les marques de distributeurs. Le groupe ne cache pas ses ambitions de l’abaisser à 6 voire 3 mois en profitant pleinement des capacités proposées par les solutions SAP Ariba.

« La réussite de notre programme de transformation repose sur trois facteurs majeurs. D’abord, mettre les équipes au cœur du projet, les questionner sur les besoins et défis, pour les intégrer à la mise en place de la solution. Ensuite, rester simples et pragmatiques, et ne pas perdre de vue les objectifs de départ. Enfin, anticiper et accompagner le changement, en parallèle de l’élaboration de l’outil, est une clé de réussite. Les collaborateurs et les fournisseurs ont pris en main cet outil, ce qui est un très bon indicateur du succès du projet. Il y a énormément de positif dans ce qui est en train de se passer. » témoignent Matthieu Bidan, chef d’entreprise Intermarché à Gratentour (31) et  Guillaume Delpech, en charge de la direction des Achats Marques Propres Intermarché – Netto.

NEW YORK et WALLDORF – Accenture (NYSE : ACN) et SAP SE (NYSE : SAP) étendent leur partenariat de plusieurs décennies pour aider les entreprises à intégrer le développement durable à l’ensemble de leurs activités, de la stratégie à l’exécution, afin de dégager une nouvelle valeur au sein de leurs entreprises et de leurs chaînes de valeur et d’approvisionnement.

En associant la technologie SAP aux services de développement durable d’Accenture et à leur vaste connaissance du secteur, les partenaires élargissent leur alliance afin de créer conjointement de nouvelles solutions qui permettront aux entreprises d’accélérer la dé-carbonisation complète de leurs chaînes d’approvisionnement et d’obtenir leur part des 4 500 milliards de dollars de croissance économique que l’économie circulaire pourrait générer*.

Grâce à ce partenariat étendu, Accenture et SAP prévoient de co-innover et de co-développer la nouvelle solution de SAP pour la production et la conception responsables, qui comprend des fonctionnalités aidant les entreprises à intégrer des mesures de durabilité dans leurs chaînes de valeur et d’approvisionnement, en mettant l’accent sur la conception et la fabrication des produits. Grâce à des données intégrées provenant de l’ensemble des opérations, les entreprises peuvent mieux concevoir et fabriquer des produits produisant moins de déchets, plus recyclables et contenant davantage de matières recyclées. Cela contribuera également à réduire le coût croissant de la conformité induit par les nouvelles réglementations en matière d’emballage et de responsabilité élargie des producteurs (REP).

« Notre collaboration permettra aux clients de SAP, qui comprennent 92% des Forbes Global 2000, d’utiliser leurs systèmes centraux pour les aider à mener leur programme de développement durable, à optimiser leurs performances ESG et à atteindre leurs objectifs », a déclaré Julie Sweet, chief executive officer d’Accenture. « Cette collaboration élargie s’appuie sur notre longue histoire avec SAP – notamment notre partenariat conjoint avec le Pacte mondial des Nations unies et 3M – et sur notre engagement commun à favoriser la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable. »

Accenture soutient également l’initiative Climate 21 de SAP, qui permet aux entreprises de tout secteur d’activité d’utiliser des outils d’analyse pour mesurer et minimiser les émissions de dioxyde de carbone (CO2) et réduire l’empreinte carbone tout au long du cycle de vie des produits. Par exemple, les recherches montrent que les émissions des fournisseurs en amont sont en moyenne plus de cinq fois supérieures à celles des opérations directes**. Grâce à l’ajout de mesures de durabilité dans l’ensemble de la chaîne d’approvisionnement de bout en bout, les entreprises disposent d’une vision intégrée des économies environnementales et de l’impact des coûts et peuvent plus facilement optimiser leurs opérations.

« Pour réussir à lutter contre la plus grande menace qui pèse sur notre monde aujourd’hui, nous devons collaborer à tous les niveaux de l’entreprise et de la société « , a déclaré Christian Klein, chief executive officer de SAP. « En s’appuyant sur notre partenariat de longue date et de confiance, SAP et Accenture unissent leurs forces pour aider nos clients à réaliser une croissance à long terme de manière durable. Nous apportons une visibilité sur l’impact environnemental de l’ensemble de la chaîne de valeur, en fournissant aux entreprises les informations dont elles ont besoin pour prendre les bonnes mesures et accélérer leur transition vers l’économie circulaire. »

Le mois dernier, SAP et Accenture ont donné le coup d’envoi d’un programme d’accélération mondial axé sur le développement durable au sein de SAP.iO Foundries. Le programme Sustainable Future, la plus grande cohorte de SAP.iO à ce jour, vise à aider les startups B2B en phase de démarrage à favoriser la transformation numérique et l’innovation dans quatre domaines cibles : le suivi et le commerce du carbone, l’efficacité des ressources, le suivi et l’atténuation des risques climatiques et l’économie circulaire. Treize startups ont été sélectionnées pour travailler avec SAP.iO Foundries Berlin et Munich, en tandem avec des experts d’Accenture et des entreprises leaders dans divers secteurs.

« La mise en œuvre de la gestion durable de la chaîne d’approvisionnement et des principes de l’économie circulaire est une tâche incroyablement difficile pour les entreprises, compte tenu de la diversité des questions ESG et des multiples parties prenantes concernées », a déclaré Bjoern Stengel,  senior research analyst, Worldwide Business Consulting and ESG Business Services chez IDC. « Selon les recherches d’IDC, les questions relatives au processus de création de valeur des entreprises (conception et gestion du cycle de vie des produits, approvisionnement en matières premières, etc.) sont les sujets d’ESG qui généreront le plus de demande à court terme. Cette nouvelle offre d’Accenture et de SAP permet aux clients de générer des informations critiques, fondées sur des données, de bout en bout, qui prennent en compte les paramètres non financiers nécessaires pour construire des chaînes d’approvisionnement durables et aider les entreprises à créer une valeur partagée. »

Cette collaboration est la dernière d’une série d’initiatives d’Accenture et de SAP qui aident les entreprises à tirer de la valeur du développement durable. Le Pacte mondial des Nations unies, avec le soutien d’Accenture et de SAP SE, en faveur des objectifs de développement durable (ODD), a lancé SDG Ambition en janvier 2020 et a publié les guides SDG Ambition et Integration en septembre 2020. Ensemble, grâce au SDG Ambition Accelerator qui a débuté en février 2021, plus de 600 entreprises dans 65 pays sont en train de monter en compétences pour appliquer ces outils à leurs activités.
