The business environment is constantly evolving, and companies need to adapt to remain competitive while aligning customer expectations with shareholder objectives. This requires a smart planning system that integrates different business functions and provides real-time data and analyses. By utilizing Integrated Business Planning (IBP), this can be achieved, and companies will become disruptors.
In this podcast episode, we talk to SAP’s Anna Linden and Oliver Wight’s Stuart Harman about how IBP can enable organizations to plan effectively, adapt and respond quickly to changing market dynamics.
Come join us as we discuss the Future of Supply Chain.
