IBP platform as the core of the digital transformation
Optimize planning and decision-making: Isolated processes and IT systems, lack of end-to-end transparency, no incorporation of external data - all of this results in slow and erroneous decisions and ultimately in a significant loss of value. With the o9 Digital Brain, the platform that is at the heart of digital transformation, you can anticipate market changes in timely fashion, more accurately forecast demand by incorporating external data, and assess integrated business, supply chain, and financial plans.
From data to knowledge to intelligent decisions. Today, companies are being challenged to make quick and intelligent decisions based on a variety of information. The o9 Digital Brain enables a full digital representation of your enterprise with a patented graph-based technology, the Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG).
The o9 Digital Brain: A full digital representation of your enterprise
With the o9 Digital Brain, all relevant internal and external data sources can be combined on one platform in real time. Based on this, you can apply advanced AI, analytics, and algorithms that enable you to forecast demand more intelligently, align demand and supply matches with scenarios based on goals such as maximizing service levels or minimizing costs, and identify opportunities and risks at an early stage. By creating an end-to-end decision-making platform that combines market, demand, and supply chain knowledge, you can make decisions more efficiently and sustainably.
Optimize short- and long-term sales performance through improved demand forecasting and analysis as well as demand sensing and shaping capabilities.

Managing Consultant o9 Solutions, valantic
”Together, we can make effective changes to simplify your decision-making, enable smarter planning, and make your business more resilient, profitable, and sustainable.“
o9’s AI-enabled digital brain improves forecasting accuracy by using real-time internal and external data to address meaningful demand drivers. In addition, companies can optimize their short- and long-term sales performance through demand sensing and shaping capabilities. Give your planners a digital solution to make decisions about demand stress-free and more efficiently.
Combine marketing and financial plans with sales forecasts and inventory targets, evaluate different demand and supply changes and their financial impact in real time, and orchestrate the entire S&OP process on one system. By creating and analyzing scenarios in real time, efficient decision-making is possible, and companies receive AI-based recommendations about risks and opportunities.
With valantic and o9, suppliers can be integrated into a collaborative process. Through the fast and easy digital onboarding of suppliers and contract manufacturers, we jointly build a multi-stage “Supply Chain Knowledge Graph” model. This provides greater transparency in inventory, demand forecasting, orders, and capacities. System-supported supplier meetings, which can be held directly on the platform, reduce coordination efforts.
Enhanced segmentation, analysis, and scenario planning capabilities improve the success of new product launches. Very complex tasks involving a large number of products can be handled at no additional cost. Reduce coordination efforts between development, marketing, sales, and supply chain by eliminating many different manually created spreadsheets and collaborating on one platform.
With the o9 Supply Chain Control Tower, internal and external demand and supply disruptions can be identified, potential risks and problems understood, and these can be resolved with pre-configured options, taking into account different cost and lead time scenarios. Collaborate across your extended supply chain and use machine learning to learn from decisions made and make future decisions faster.
Supply chain analytics can be used to implement a wide range of applications, such as the analysis and verification of compliance with capacity limits and delivery schedules. The creation of a cost-to-serve analysis and the assessment of customer profitability help companies make the right decisions, thereby significantly improving the bottom line. Inventory is optimized in multi-tier supply chain networks with “multi-echelon” to meet customer needs with minimal inventory.
