TCS SAP Integrated Business Planning

Center of Excellence
Enterprise Solutions

As consumers across various industries demand delivery of customized products and services in real time, the role
of Supply Chain Management (SCM) is undergoing a radical overhaul. To manage the complexity of demand in a
rapidly evolving marketplace, companies need to work in tandem with internal and external stakeholders across
their extended supply chain. Organizations are therefore increasingly looking to adopt SAPs Integrated Business
Planning (IBP) solution to harmonize planning across different corporate functions such as sales, operations,
inventory management and finance.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) SAP IBP Center of Excellence (CoE) helps businesses rapidly deploy SAPs IBP
solution to ensure an agile, responsive and streamlined supply chain. We provide a range of servicesexpert
reviews, strategy and roadmap advisory, rollout and managed services. By leveraging our robust framework and
mature methodologies, companies reduce time to market and total cost of ownership (TCO) for SAP IBP
implementation.

Overview

Benefits

Supply chains are increasingly evolving into real-time demand


networks as digitally empowered consumers expect companies
to fulfill their urgent requirements for individualized goods and
services. It has therefore become imperative for enterprises to
capture, interpret, plan, and quickly act on real-time information,
in order to achieve supply chain agility. This is the driving factor
for the growing adoption of technology systems such as SAPs IBP
solution that are designed to harmonize planning across different
supply chain processes. However, the risks associated with the
implementation of such SCM offerings are high, given the
complexity of these systems. Moreover, a delayed execution
inevitably leads to higher total cost of ownership, and reduced
return on investment.

TCS SAP IBP CoE enables enterprises to gain on-the-go visibility into
ever evolving demand, and respond accordingly through predictive
demand planning and orchestration of their supply chain network.
This paves the way for real-time supply chain management,
ensuring that the SCM strategy is aligned with strategic business
priorities.

TCS SAP IBP Center of Excellence provides a robust framework,


underpinned by proven methodologies, for quick implementation
of SAPs IBP suite comprising cloud-based SCM applications.
Through our diverse range of services including expert reviews,
strategy and roadmap advisory, and managed serviceswe help
enterprises optimize their SCM-linked business processes in
a timely and cost effective manner. Through stringent governance
and knowledge management, the CoE facilitates rapid
institutionalization of SAP IBP for sales and operations, inventory,
