The innovation of HANA from SAP has spurred the development of several applications for analyzing and managing big data. The SAP S&OP, now a part of SAP IBP (Integrated Business Planning), is one of these applications that addresses the sales and operational business process. It has been a white space due to the complexity of the process and ability to process large volumes of data.
At Ameri100, we have worked extensively with SAP development on a new product to play the role of a development and implementation partner. This achieves the discipline of a common set of numbers, system-generated metrics and transaction data-generated history with a level of consistency that one could only have dreamed of since S&OP came onto the scene in the mid-1980’s. This level of discipline allows users to plan and make informed decisions quickly and seamlessly. As a solution extension to SAP IBP, Ameri100 took the need for virtual meetings to develop the S&OP Analytics mobile app. This app meets the need for connection back to the home office for key meetings using system-generated graphs, annotated email interface and the security and flexibility of having access to your required data hierarchy.
At Ameri100, we have many S&OP experienced consultants who are certified and trained in SAP IBP. Leveraging our S&OP process and industry experience, we are able to fast track the implementation of SAP IBP. What’s more, we can engage and develop a SAP S&OP pilot in 12 weeks to demonstrate value to the business and then chart a road map to scale the implementation by function or geography. The APICS Magazine (July/August 2014) featured an article on high-performing S&OP teams authored by Ameri100. This can be accessed at magazine with a valid APICS membership. Leadership practitioner workshops are available for business teams upon request. These workshops based on actual business scenarios have been key educational tools for business as well as MBA classes.
