Based on the emerging requirements within our business, our disciplines and service-lines and within our business environment (vendors, legislators, customers, etc.) European Business Services recognize the need and opportunity to digitize our service offering (seamless digital user experience). At the same time we also see an opportunity to disclose and monetize value captured in our data in areas that are not yet disclosed by other departments and/or that is valuable to Business Services operations. The value captures in transactional data is potentially significant.

Both trends have been captured in the EBS mission statement:
