SAP IBP is limited

Why SAP IBP can’t manage the complexity and volatility of today’s global supply chains.

Digital platform

AI Forecasting, Demand Sensing, Control Towers, Scenario Planning and IBP are vital in today’s digital economy.

Most companies selected SAP APO 10 to 15 years ago and haven’t replaced it since. With increasing complexity and a more dynamic environment, the decision to replace APO now is much more critical than when companies first chose the software.

What are the digital capabilities of the o9 platform?

Eliminate supply chain lags by reducing the reaction time between demand signals and the response to those signals.

Use lagging and leading indicators of demand, as well as impactful external data, to more accurately forecast demand.

Detect and address disruptions in real-time.

Break down functional silos within your planning processes and make sure the right information flows to the right person at the right time.

Run “what-if” scenarios against constraints, disruptions, and opportunities in your supply chain to identify the optimal path forward to financial and service level success.

We’ve done this before

Here’s why the world’s largest beverage company decided to replace APO

Out with the Excel

Most of their detailed demand planning and supply planning was a large siloed, manual effort handled outside APO using spreadsheets.

Rigid data model?

APO’s rigid data model forced planners to find workarounds and to plan outside the system, often arriving at an inaccurate forecast.

2

Poor functionality

The creation of a production plan was performed outside APO making it inefficient and siloed.

3
3

Flexible forecast

Data model within APO was at the lowest level of granularity, preventing planners from managing their forecasts at aggregated levels.
