What if you could upgrade your supply chain and operating model with a “digital brain?”

The o9 digital brain is an integrated, cloud-native platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to drive collaborative, data-driven decisions. By bringing together siloed and external market data, the digital brain allows companies to gain real-time insights and connect the dots across their organization, helping them plan better and make informed decisions. Deloitte’s breadth of industry-specific process transformation experience powered by o9’s intelligent Integrated Business Planning platform, can drive digital integration across businesses.

o9’s solutions offer ML- and AI-powered forecasting driven by real-time market sensing to close commercial planning gaps, enabling demand-supply synchronization to drive cost savings and deliver agility to businesses. o9 provides tools for scenario planning to analyze and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders (customers, suppliers, and operations) for intelligent trade-offs, thereby empowering the organization to make faster, more feasible decisions. With Deloitte as a trusted partner, we jointly deliver innovative transformation with a focused value-driven approach, minimizing business disruption while maximizing return on investment.

Deloitte’s industry-leading solutions, powered by o9’s cloud-based open platform, can enable your business to sense and respond to an ever-changing market through connected planning, driving decision alignment, revenue growth, and profitability.

Smart Planning: Improving supply chain planning performance with scalable next-generation capabilities

It’s time to reimagine supply chain planning.

Smart Planning is a collaboration between Deloitte and o9 Solutions that consists of best-in-class configurations of existing o9 functionality and advanced capabilities including AI/ML-enabled data modeling, integration of external data sources, and connectivity with other assets – based on Deloitte’s extensive cross-industry experience transforming companies’ supply chain and planning capabilities. The platform provides insights and workflow automation solutions that enable strategic and tactical-level supply chain activities across the enterprise value chain. It allows your business to:

  • Synchronize multiple solutions
  • Enhance end-to-end visibility into operations
  • Increase agility and real-time scenario planning
  • Improve forecast accuracy

Why wait the years required to complete a typical large-scale planning transformation when your business can leverage Smart Planning’s production ready environment and suite of predefined planning configurations to quickly stand-up advanced planning capabilities and realize value in just a few months. Once onboarded on the Smart Planning platform, you’ll receive the deep analytics and leading supply chain domain experience of Deloitte to help you achieve greater forecast accuracy.

Smart Planning serves as the backbone for Deloitte’s broader planning-as-a-service capabilities, supported by a global network of delivery centers that can scale and grow with your business. Planning-as-a-service functions will span across demand, supply, inventory, and integrated business planning; with demand planning services set to be available late Spring 2022.
