Given the encompassing nature of export compliance, most existing Trade Management Systems encounter limitations that hinder their effectiveness in meeting contemporary export requirements.
A common limitation is the narrow data scope: some systems, such as SAP GTS, primarily manage licenses for physical goods. However, export regulations, including ITAR, also necessitate safeguards against unauthorized access to technical data, a facet often overlooked.
Additionally, many Trade Management Systems generate records solely for export events occurring within a single application or system. As export regulations extend to cover technical data alongside physical goods, businesses must address data transfer across systems, transcending the scope controlled by a single Trade Management System.
