Top 10 New Features in SAP IBP 2205 Release
SAP has released a Sneak Peek for SAP IBP What’s New 2205. In this blog, we get to check the top 10 features that we are looking forward to learning more about:
Simulation for Purging Non-Conforming Data
For this one, I’m especially curious, because I was never sure what is the data that was being removed from the backend. Now, when scheduling the job in the Application Jobs app, we can simulate and preview the data to be purged.
Business Network Collaboration – Increased Number of custom key figures for quantities
Up to 30 custom key figures for quantities are now supported for data sharing plans that can be used to send information from SAP IBP to forecast add-on for SAP Ariba Supply Chain Collaboration for Buyers.
New APP: Simulate Key Figure Calculations
Simulate and validate changes made to the calculation definitions of key figures without activating the planning area first.
New key figure simplification: Current Value Calculation
IBP_CURRENT_VALUE function retrieves the current value of the input key figure in a time-independent output key figure.
Demand Planning – External Forecasting
External forecasting algorithms can now be added to the forecast models in the Manage Forecast Models app, allowing users to tailor forecast calculations to specific use cases. The external algorithm is only available in the SAP IBP (example of external systems RStudio or Visual Studio)
Demand Planning – New Algorithm: Croston TSB Method
The Croston TSB method is now available as a forecasting algorithm. The method can be used to predict demand for products with intermittent time series.
Demand Planning – Unlimited Number of Extra Signals in Demand Sensing
Users can now add any number of extra signals for the demand sensing with a gradient boosting algorithm.
Mass Editing in the Manage Master Data App
Users can now create, maintain and delete multiple master data entries directly in the Manage Master Data app.
Enhancements to the Change History Analysis App
Users can send an automatic notification email by selecting the new Send Email to Users checkbox in the Share dialog.
New App: Manage Planning Notes
The app can be used to view and delete planning notes created for a specific planning area, version, and scenario.
