Supply chain leaders launch demand planning initiatives hoping to achieve significant business benefits, but often they are unable to gain tangible performance results. According to Gartner, “Forecast accuracy is only a starting point. Fully realizing the benefits of an accurate demand plan requires an end‐to‐end supply chain response.”* Gartner outlines best practices and improvement roadmaps that mature supply chains have adopted to begin achieving E2E excellence.

Gartner’s research describes what is necessary for supply chain leaders to gain full return on investment (ROI) from demand signals.

Key recommendations from Gartner to supply chain leaders include strategic actions like these:

  • “Improve supply reliability, agility and responsiveness by incorporating and automating demand plans into your supply tools, and by aligning supply strategy and tactics to business objectives.”

  • “Leverage demand and supply capabilities with your customer service organization to improve the customer experience by incorporating demand and supply intelligence into order promising, VMI and allocation solutions.”*
