Supply Chain Planning

Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS)

for JD Edwards

The most successful enterprise-sized companies are those that effectively and efficiently streamline and optimize their supply chain management. A crucial cog in this process is demand planning, that complex process that gives enterprises visibility into their forecasting, including the ups and downs of demand. The ultimate goal is to laser-target revenue forecasting and maximize profitability for each supply chain channel.

With the right demand planning solution, your company can accurately predict customer demand, efficiently deliver products to customers, boost cash flow, and shape profitability for even the most complex global supply chain. As your company improves its accuracy in forecasting, you will benefit from better inventory turns and order fill rates.

How that is achieved, though, differs by company as each business has unique needs, goals, and processes. To help yours, here are advantages of Cloud solutions as well as examples of when on-premise integration of demand planning into internal IT infrastructures may make sense—and then we’ll provide a closer look at Demantra.

Four Benefits of Demand Planning in the Cloud

    • Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): When your demand planning solution is hosted in the cloud, you are no longer responsible for the management of the IT infrastructure that supports demand planning, or for the costs associated with on-premise management.
    • Streamlined Operations via Real-Time Integration: Your team can access the exact data you need, right when you need it, without worrying about how timely the information is, because systems are seamlessly connected to one another. This also reduces operational costs. Your communications, both internal and external, are elevated, boosting collaboration.
    • Laser-Targeted Market Demand Responses: Because your enterprise can readily access real-time demand signals, your company can quickly and easily adapt responses to demand, even in volatile market conditions.
    • Seamless Upgrades: On-premise upgrades can lead to business interruption, which affects fulfillment, which affects profitability. With Cloud solutions, upgrades can typically be rolled out during non-business days or non-peak times, or otherwise take place with as little business interruption as possible.
