Uncertainty in demand, high service expectations, faster delivery times… supply chain management is becoming increasingly complex. By digitizing and connecting everything, SAP Integrated Business Planning helps you align supply and demand. The result? You can prioritize certain production lines, ease planning, and adjust your operations to changing market needs. 

How to get started

SAP IBP allows you to make strategic and operational data-driven decisions in all aspects of your supply chain. Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone: Flexso helps you get started with the innovative tool. How you do this depends on the solutions you have in place already.

  • Don’t have a SCM solution yet? Consider moving to IBP and S/4HANA, with Sales and Operations planning as a possible starting point.
  • Do you have a light SCM solution? Start moving to mature IBP solutions and consider additional IBP innovations.
  • Already have an advanced SCM solution? Investigate the IBP innovations’ evolving potential to enrich your current model and use a roadmap to gradually replace your existing solutions.
