Supply Chain Insights in their study found that more than 80% of the companies they surveyed had an S&OP process. However, most companies have varying levels of maturity with it, and hence, very mixed results. The starting point to building a roadmap for a mature and successful S&OP process is to assess your current process. Gartner’s Maturity Model provides a very good mechanism for it.

Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

For most large organizations, sales planning is a siloed process. Organizations typically need to analyze multiple years’ worth of data to prepare for planning. There is an even split between organizations that lead the planning process from the top down and those that lead it from the bottom up. Most sales organizations complete the planning process before the beginning of the fiscal year.

Read this report to understand how the age of the customer requires tech management to transform into a customer-facing function in speci?c ways. Business technology (BT) brings together technology and traditionally customer-facing roles like marketing, sales, service, brand/product management, and ful?llment for the purpose of deploying systems of engagement that provide di?erential customer experience. Firms must build these systems of engagement from the outside in, according to how customers move in market spaces. The rules for planning, building, and running systems of engagement are not the same as for previous generations of tech management because customers are not employees. The increasingly crucial role that digital technologies play in customer engagement elevates the CIO role in business — if CIOs can move beyond the traditional IT focus on technology assets and adopt an expanded view that centers on customer experience and choice

In the not-too-distant past, a retailer simply had store-level sales data, from which virtually all planning decisions were made. Today, retailers—from grocery to fashion—are bombarded with data that, with the right tools, can help them gain actionable insight into shoppers’ behavior across channels. In this white paper Oracle Retail explains how retailers can accurately measure consumer interest in specific merchandise and apply that knowledge from one channel to the next, thoroughly understand the implications of promotions on specific customers and customer segments, price on product performance, plan channel-specific assortments accordingly, and coordinate the supply chain processes to ensure execution of the cross channel plan.
