Unmatched S&OP scenario planning speed

The speed in which scenarios can be created and analyzed has gone from 24-48 hours to 10-30 minutes in our S&OP process with RapidResponse. Planners use scenarios to hone in on a solution that may involve changing and recalculating the scenario multiple times – that would take 24 hours for each cycle in our SAP planning tools.
