Why Integrated Business Planning (IBP) is necessary to balance costs with the changing values of consumers

  • Consumer demands on the Chemical Industry are changing rapidly, often driven by environmental issues covered in the media, and sometimes contradictory.
  • Effective deployment of the business strategy through IBP is more critical than ever to respond to the increased pace of change.
  • E2E Integration can allow the Chemical Industry to respond with agility to these changes, whilst maintaining control of the cost.
