Who Owns the "S" in S&OP?
In recent years, functions other than Sales – including Supply Chain and Finance – have often taken ownership of predicting future sales. The process has become an aggregation exercise done by specialists, and the name itself – demand management – indicates that the Sales team is not intimately involved. But true S&OP requires Sales to “own their number,” which delivers company-wide benefits because Sales is the closest to the demand signal.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- The Sales Planning Challenges
- The Keys to Success
- How a Sales Planning Platform Can Help You Hit Your Number

Creating a Demand Planning System Worthy of the Digital Supply Chain
History is a poor predictor of future sales in today’s fast-moving world. However, many companies still rely on traditional demand planning systems that employ time-series analysis to create forecasts. Increased dependence on new products and promotions to drive growth further compounds the problem; new items lack the two years of data required for time-series analysis and promotions are by nature designed to ensure that history does not repeat itself.
There are, however, some bright spots with leading companies using new demand sensing technology capable of capturing and analyzing the abundance of real-time data in the digital supply chain.
In this webinar, Piet Buyck, VP of Sales, Forecasting Solutions at E2open, explores this new technology, barriers to change, and how it will affect the future supply chain.

The Effect of Volatility on Safety Stock

This webinar explores what drives safety stock and how it relates to other forms and functions of inventory, how demand uncertainty directly impacts inventory, and steps to control volatility by using current data.
The True Cost of a Long Tail
