IBP will become an important element in many company strategies. The old S&OP processes may need to be reviewed, to consider not only Demand and Supply, but also additional information, such as R&D, marketing and financial figures to better support strategic decisions (the objective of “Integrated” Business Planning). Essentially, companies that successfully execute IBP achieve greater operational and financial benefits than those that do not.
In this research, we examine in detail the various proponents driving this automation trend, the different forms of automation, and the ways managers can prepare for this phenomenon.

Organizations are facing new challenges and difficulties every day due to globalization and volatility in the form of ever-changing supply lines and unpredictable demand situations. Businesses wish to monitor and adapt to changes to their supply chain and the potential risks and opportunities that they create, whilst evaluating the impact and possible actions in real time.

This article addresses questions related to the co-existence of SAP APO and IBP in an IT system landscape. A common misconception is to think that SAP IBP is replacing SAP APO. Even if that is the case, IBP has the potential to bring additional value to your IT system landscape, which can include an SAP APO system.

What you will take out of this.

More often than not, we get questions from customers such as:

  • Do we need SAP IBP if we already have SAP APO?
  • Could you provide us with a comparison between APO and IBP?
  • Can IBP co-exist with APO?
