Can Webplan Reconcile Planning and Execution? Part One: Event Summary


According to the early signs, it appears that key elements of Webplan's business plan are producing results with dividends. These elements involve positioning itself as a response management player with new pricing and packaging that provides an aggressive entry point and fixed priced, fixed duration implementations; leveraging partnerships with enterprise applications vendors; and investing in field operations in North America and Asia with an expanded distribution model to include both direct and indirect global sales.

Can Webplan Reconcile Planning and Execution? Part Two: Market Impact


Increasingly, every user company's success is contingent upon its ability to make an almost immediate finished product or service delivery to customers. As supply chains become more dynamic and operate in near real-time, the lines between planning and execution continue to blur, which bodes well for their functional convergence. Thus, some supply chain execution (SCE) vendors have started to move beyond pure execution to offer some planning and optimization capabilities, often with the "adaptive" moniker.

Sales and Operations Planning: The Key to Continuous Demand Satisfaction


All companies use some form of sales and operations planning (S&OP) to synchronize market data with production output. But most practice a planning process based on logistics rather than strategy.
