Abstract

SAP Integrated Business Planning is a real-time supply chain planning solution purpose built to profitably meet future demand by optimizing the supply chain. Built natively on SAP HANA and deployed in cloud, SAP IBP provides the flexibility, agility, and performance to meet complex planning requirements of the next-generation supply chain. SAP IBP is used by many customers in strategic, tactical, and operational planning on a unified integrated data model supporting sales and operation planning, demand planning, inventory optimization, response and supply, and control tower. Together with robust planning algorithms, real-time simulations, what-if analysis, dashboards and analytics, alerts, embedded social collaboration, and data integration with external sources, SAP IBP is the state of the art planning solution.
