Integrated Business Planning

Are you IBP Ready?

SAP IBP Implementation

A quick three-week engagement to assess your organizational readiness for implementing SAP IBP

  • Analyze your existing processes to identify potential gaps to best practices
  • Let Data drive the Design: Leverage big data and analytics to build the infrastructure and capabilities.  What type of analytics and KPIs do we need for a successful implementation. 
  • What is the value opportunity for the IBP implementation?
  • If you are a company with a well established SAP APO Process, what are the steps necessary for conversion from APO to SAP IBP? 
  • How does IBP add value to your planning process? 

IBP Process brings together all elements of Sales, Marketing, Finance and Operations into one integrated set of plans.

Our approach is two-pronged - we help with the diagnostics for implementing a holistic Integrated Business Planning process that is agnostic to the tool.  Then we evaluate your systems landscape and resource readiness to implement SAP IBP. 

  • Three weeks on-site
  • IBP Subject Matter Experts
  • SCM Data analytics to uncover the opportunity
  • 50% of the diagnostics engagement fee rebated if we implement the IBP Solution
