With the growing ubiquity of data, it is critical for organizations to leverage best-of-breed planning and analytics solutions that provide a dynamic, data-driven, 360-degree view of the world. These solutions also need to be cost-effective and scalable to handle the variety and velocity of data collected today.
Planning and forecasting systems span areas such as Finance, Supply Chain, Sales, and Operations. Connected Planning solutions integrate these plans into cohesive plans and forecasts for the enterprise. This requires data from across the organization supplemented with external data.
