Supply Chain Planning

Supply chain management professionals are under constant pressure to reduce costs and improve margins. Unfortunately, many lack access to comprehensive data and rely on manual planning tools. With demand volatility on the rise, supply chain leaders will need to upgrade to a continuous integrated planning approach to gain real-time visibility into the disparate data that drives operational efficiency and actionable insights.

With IBM Planning Analytics with Watson it’s easy to create and adjust plans as needed by leveraging deep insights to understand what is driving demand and your business. Streamline the planning process across the entire enterprise to create supply chain plans that are smooth, synchronized, responsive and resilient.
