IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Sales and Operations Planning 2016 Vendor Assessment

By: Simon EllisProgram Vice President

Abstract

This IDC study is a quantitative and qualitative assessment that evaluates notable vendor software applications in the sales and operations planning (S&OP) marketplace and helps assess both current and anticipated future performance in the marketplace. This study assesses the capability and business strategy of 10 vendors that offer notable S&OP tools to the marketplace. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive IDC framework and set of parameters identified to best evaluate and meet end-user requirements for S&OP.

"Sales and operations planning is a perennial hot topic among manufacturing and retail supply chain professionals in IDC surveys. It has become, for many of these businesses, the difference between an acceptably performing supply chain and a top-performing supply chain. As the supply chain grows in strategic performance, IDC strongly recommends that companies invest in a best-in-class S&OP tool," says Simon Ellis, program vice president for IDC Manufacturing Insights' Global Digital Supply Chain Networks and Planning Strategies research.
