Business Reporter: Collaborate and grow: How SAP Ariba SCC benefits supply chain planning and performance

How can a consultancy help make the most of the world’s largest B2B network?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 5, 2021 / — In an Industry View piece published on Business Reporter, Olivehorse, a provider of supply chain planning consulting services with the SAP Recognised Expertise status, explains how replacing planning heuristics with a cost based optimisation approach, can help make businesses more agile and resilient. By integrating procurementinto the sales and operations planning process, using SAP’s IBP for Response and Supply Optimisation capabilities enables the simulation and implementation of tactical planning and sourcing decisions within the framework of a single, global model.

Olivehorse has identified SAP Ariba for Supply Chain Collaboration as the key platform to real-time supply chain management and end to end visibility. It can be integrated with ERP systems as well as SAP IBP. When businesses connect to the Ariba Network, they connect to millions of suppliers across direct and indirect expense categories. While all the highly complex demand planning, material requirements planning (MRP), and associated changes remain in the companies’ ERP and planning system, they can be digitally shared with suppliers live and in real time.

What Olivehorse brings to the table is its domain expertise, industry knowledge and collective years of experience in the field. Implemented with expert knowledge, the Ariba Network can not only help establish the level of supply chain transparency and resilience that is instrumental in a post-Covid world but also enable the digitisation of supply chains and the optimisation of capital by reducing both latency and lead times.
