Migration from SAP SCM APO

From SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization into the SAP IBP Cloud.

CONSILIO Expert Talk about APO IBP Migration

Do you want to replace your individualized APO with Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP)?
We support you in developing a migration strategy and put your individual planning processes to the test together with you. In doing so, we conserve your IT resources by aligning the APO migration 

with your  S/4HANA transformation. Thanks to our IBP, APO, PP/DS and S/4HANA expertise as well as many years of project experience in the manufacturing industry, CONSILIO is the ideal partner for your APO-IBP migration.

  • Support for your SAP SCM APO system will end in the near future
  • Functional updates for your SAP SCM APO system will no longer be performed
  • Benefit from the advantages of IBP compared to APO already today and set up your supply chain planning future-oriented
  • Plan enough time as well as internal and external capacities for your entire migration. Your complete migration project, including all global rollouts, is particularly time-intensive
  • To remain capable of acting in the future, you need to act soon. Make sure you do not overstretch your internal resources
