SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP)

Today’s intricate and often chaotic supply chains demand tools with enhanced capabilities to manage the complexities. SAP’s supply chain solutions comprise all the key tools to support your business.


Capable tools are not all that are needed for successful supply chain planning and monitoring. If the supply chain business processes are not considered, the tools cannot be optimally utilized.


At Venetia Partners, we not only have top-notch, experienced consultants but we also have years of supply chain business transformation experience to successfully align software with processes and organizational governance.


We support all the SAP IBP modules (S&OP, Demand, Inventory, DDMRP, Supply & Response and Control Tower) and have the capability to fully integrate these tools with other systems.
