YOU can't accuse Gary Reiner of being verbose. Ask General Electric's chief information officer a question, and you get an answer that is right to the point And he regularly checks whether his listeners are still following: "Are you getting what you need?"

Anything else would be a disappointment. After all, America's GE is known for its obsessive quest for perfection. And Mr Reiner heads the company's most important initiative: computerising, or "digitising", as much of its business as possible. That not only means buying and selling things online but, more importantly, setting up a digital nervous information system that connects everything involved in the company's business: IT systems, factories, employees, suppliers, customers and products.

Information technology is speeding up business decision-making and creating a real-time economy, says Ludwig Siegele

GE's aim is to monitor everything in real time, Mr Reiner explains, calling up a special spreadsheet on his PC: a "digital dashboard" with green, yellow and red colours that signal the status of programs that are critical to GE's business. If one of them stays red or even yellow for too long, Mr Reiner gets the system to email the people in charge via the network. He can also see when he had to intervene the last time, or how individual applications — such as programs to manage book-keeping or orders — have performed.

As chief information officer, Mr Reiner was the first in the firm to get a dashboard. Now all GE's senior managers have them. The principle is always the same: the dashboard compares how certain measurements, such as response times or sales or margins, perform against goals, and alerts managers (in real time) if they need to take action.

GE, which estimates that its digitisation efforts saved it $1.6 billion in just one year, has a long history of innovative business management. In years to come, experts predict, many companies will use information technology to become a "real-time enterprise" — an organisation that is able to react instantaneously to changes in its business. And as firms wire up and connect to form networks with their business partners, they make the entire economy more and more real time, creating not so much a "new" but a "now" economy.
