Companies can now gain tremendous advantage by having detailed and accurate strategy performance information across their entire internal operation as well as their extended enterprise.
The Gartner Group has defined this new management practice as Integrated Business Planning (IBP). At its core, IBP allows a company to manage its business most profitably.
IBP can transform organizations, by eliminating silos, providing enterprise based analytics, performance tracking and alerting. IBP implementations offer significant competitive advantage through the use of well-orchestrated “disruptive” solutions.
