How Fingent Helps
Business leaders in the manufacturing industry seek to gain visibility across the entire supply-and-demand landscape to gather new insights, identify opportunities, automate processes, remove uncertainties, and gain new efficiencies. This is where the tight integration between SAP Ariba and SAP IBP comes to your rescue. Connecting the two solutions delivers a true end-to-end supply chain platform.
While SAP Ariba allows you to streamline the supply chain, SAP IBP (Integrated Business Planning) helps you improve forecasts, predict demands, and bring a more integrated approach to sales and operations planning. Partnering with Fingent to implement an integrated SAP Ariba and SAP IBP solution can help you improve operations across your enterprise.

In simple words, demand planning refers to managing and planning for customer demand. Supply planning is about managing and planning the inventory supply to meet customer demand. Demand planning refers to forecasting consumer demand for a product or service well ahead of time and is usually associated with sales. It’s closely related to supply planning also since your business needs to ensure that you have enough supplies to meet the demand. In fact, demand forecasting allows you to maintain the supply levels properly.
Integrating SAP IBP with SAP Ariba makes way for a co-innovated supply chain collaboration that can provide greater visibility into your business’s demand and supply landscape. By improving their supply chain planning and execution processes with integrated business planning (IBP) and advanced supplier collaboration capabilities (Ariba), discrete manufacturers can achieve intelligent enterprise transformation.
