Semiconductors industry

Why is the o9 Digital Brain the platform every Semiconductor company needs?

Are your slow and siloed planning capabilities preventing you from detecting market changes, forecasting demand accurately, and driving integrated commercial, supply chain and financial plans and decisions at the speed and scale needed to compete in the digital age?

Common semiconductors
challenges by role

  • “We are seeing rapid growth in the smartphone and automotive market driving semiconductor investments in emerging markets.”
  • “Rapid innovation and portfolio expansion with shorter product life cycles is leading to markdowns/obsolescence”
  • “Our leading demand drivers & indicators not being monitored systematically - Creates surprises”
  • “Our long supply lead times create limited ability to react to significant changes in short term demand.”
  • “Demand shifts away from PCs to servers, telecom, music players and imaging devices creates forecasting challenges”
  • “Distribution, procurement and ops are not able to re-plan easily when faced with change”
  • “We have limited visibility and collaboration with Multi-Tier Suppliers around disruption and constraints”
  • “Allocation of constrained supply is often contentious and sub-optimal”
  • “High capital costs and lead times to build fabrication plants are often years ahead of actual demand.”
  • “Collaborative manufacturing adds complexity. We increasingly share design and manufacturing costs.
  • “Slow, siloed planning processes without clear view on constraints lead to alignment gap between planning, finance and operations execution”
  • “We cannot answer management what-if questions in real-time”
  • “Our S&OP is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain and highly ineffective meetings”

Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
