AI Support in End-to-End Supply Chain Planning
Munich, March 22, 2022: Today, valantic, the fastest-growing IT consulting and software company in Europe, announced starting their partnership with o9 Solutions, Inc., a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making. This partnership enables valantic to offer the o9 Digital Brain platform to its customers in German-speaking Europe and help them optimize their supply chain planning capabilities.
The o9 Digital Brain platform, which can be adapted for companies in various industries, enables better and faster planning and decision-making at scale by interlinking internal enterprise data and external data about the market to create an integrated repository of company knowledge called the Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG). The platform’s preconfigured solutions include Demand Planning (DP), Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), Supply Chain Control Towers (SCCT), Supply Chain Master Planning (SCMP), Integrated Business Planning (IBP), and Revenue Growth Management (RGM).
valantic’s technological expertise and decades of experience in supply chain excellence projects have helped leading global companies in many different industries with their digital transformation from strategy to tangible realization. Our SCM consulting takes into account all horizontal and vertical value-added processes. Thanks to the innovative o9 platform, we can now further expand our range of consulting services and use an established cloud solution that considers all processes from the supplier to the point of sale. We see great potential in this,” says Martin Hofer, Partner at valantic and Managing Director of valantic Supply Chain Excellence.
“We are pleased to have gained an implementation partner in valantic, one that will significantly improve our position on the German-speaking market. We share the same belief that companies can only make the right decisions if they can get a real-time picture of all processes across the enterprise,” says Igor Rikalo, COO & President of o9 Solutions, Inc.
“In our consulting, we always recommend that processes be considered along the end-to-end supply chain. This means optimizing and automating these processes for our customers in an open, transparent manner. Previously, the technical implementation was mostly based on SAP or on valantic’s waySuite software suite. With o9 Solutions, we are pleased to be able to offer an exceptional software solution to provide information transparently and in real time. This will enable companies to design processes more quickly and intelligently, and thus make optimal, data-driven decisions,” says Martin Hofer.
