Oracle Integrated Business Planning and Execution provides end-to-end planning capabilities for manufacturing companies, enabling them to achieve their long-, medium-, and short-term performance goals. Oracle’s solution uses the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and prescriptive analytics to transform plans into execution. It provides a what-if analysis of future scenarios and evaluates the alternatives to maintain or improve the company’s business targets. Once a new plan is generated that incorporates this information, Integrated Business Planning and Execution transforms plans into action using enterprise execution systems.

Integrated Business Planning and Execution is the first solution architecture in the market that provides end-to-end integrated business planning (IBP) and execution. Oracle’s solution combines sales and operations planning with advanced technologies (IoT, AI, and prescriptive analytics) to monitor real-time planning execution. It detects future improvement opportunities, minimizing the business value lost by traditional processes where IBP and execution are siloed.
Integrated Business Planning and Execution uses a unified data model to provide a single view for all participants. It also utilizes advanced analytics to provide projections for business outcomes for each line of business, simplifying business complexity and enabling managers to make timely, appropriate decisions.
Oracle’s solution enables long-range strategy planning; strategic modeling; mergers and acquisitions; financial, projects, capital, and workforce planning; sales and operations planning; and supply chain planning.
Juniper's vision was to implement a digital supply chain with integrated business planning (IBP), where the business planning process would extend the principles of sales and operations planning (S&OP) throughout the supply chain, product and customer portfolios, and customer demand and strategic planning to deliver one seamless management system with supporting business processes. Since moving to Oracle Cloud, Juniper Network's lead time attainment is up by 55%, while their inventory cost has been reduced by 15%, allowing them to pay back 3.5X what they invested in the journey itself.
The modern supply chain is very noisy. Digital feedback is everywhere—whether it's the voice of the customer through the internet, the voice of the factory through production or asset monitoring, or the voice of the product itself.
