SAP IBP Platform & Configuration Workshop (Jan 20th, 2018)


This SAP Integrated Business Planning IBP Platform & Configuration workshop is designed to help you lead the transformation to a Digital Supply Chain. If you are still planning in SAP APO or in Excel, and would like to thoroughly understand SAP IBP's value proposition including kicking the tires on your own schedule with our support, then this workshop is for you.

You will learn the business context behind Digital Supply Chain as we showcase the SAP IBP Platform & Applications with in-depth demonstrations across the board. We will then switch gears and teach you how to configure custom models from scratch in SAP IBP. You will be able to go through a mock implementation (real-world use case) given full access to the system and support from GitaCloud team. There will be a certification test to help benchmark your learning. 

The workshop takes a hybrid approach to optimally blend instructor-led learning over 4 days with self-paced hands-on learning approach over 4 weeks. Learners will benefit from IBP experienced instructors covering concept slides, live IBP demonstrations, opportunity to execute learning exercises live with support from instructors, and live Q&A interactions to enrich their learning.

This workshop is based on the IBP 1711 release.
