Aspen Technology
Good for large organizations but can be used across various industries from manufacturing to even medical. Also very Citrix publishing friendly to allow multiple users located anywhere to use AspenOne Supply Chain Management across the organization while consolidating their data in a centralized secure place. This ability to consolidate and centralize applications and data within the same facility makes migration, high availability in DR scenario easier to configure as well.

SAP
Integrate SAP Integrated Business Planning in the daily operation of the core business is easy if the use of SAP HANA Cloud requires to increase in budget and is not possible for all types or sizes of organisations, but if your IT department requires to connect to on-premise data, connect to other data repositories on cloud or off-premise and customize reports for specific businesses cases, these tasks can increase the projected costs and require to adopt other SAP modules that can not be required at all.

Cons
Aspen Technology
  • While AspenOne Supply Chain Management generate a wealth of data and information, the ability to organize and create reports can be time consuming as well as steep learning curve.
  • While incremental updates are predictable, AspenOne major version updates can be difficult to implement with wide user impact causing more downtime than we prefer.
  • Report merge and legacy version conversion tools can be made easier to use with more GUI (graphical user interface) options and less command base as well as status progress graphic and confirmation of completion would be very helpful.

  • The trial version is very limited, but it's a trial! But for the awareness of the platform, SAP could improve the free version.
  • SAP IBP has a lot of functions, but not all are easy to understand and put into practice. Maybe a better demo would be a plus for the awareness of all of them.

Alternatives Considered
Aspen Technology
AspenOne Supply Chain Management was a cheaper alternative to SAP HANA and while as not feature-ful and not as easy to integrate with SAP data, the interface was easy enough to configure without the need for HANA. It was also easier and quicker to deploy and implement which alleviated our business pain point. It's like an old saying the best software is the one you can use, now! Our management and supply chain team members have been happy with the product and very few complaints arise from the production usage or performance.

SAP
It has been a while since we have evaluated inventory and planning related SAAS products. We have primarily evaluated the level of effort to custom build tools to support the planning team. The maintenance and flexibility required for each business area made it so that we did not have enough resources to centralize a solution that could be used by all demand and supply planners.

Return on Investment
Aspen Technology
  • We needed AspenOne Supply Chain Management quickly back in 2013 since our biggest pain point was tracking movement of products and ability for multiple departments and locations to access the information to complete their responsibilities within the organization. Was able to successfully implement in three quarters for go-live.
  • Since our initiation implementation our two major version upgrades did not go as smooth as we would like causing downtime of user access and the system does not have flexibility to run previous version while upgrading to new version. Upgrade path needs to improve to minimize downtime.
  • The business reported quick ROI of better than expected results and the software paid for itself in under three years which beats projection.
  • Centralized implementation makes disaster recovery (DR) configuration easier to manage.

SAP
  • Better forecast accuracy
  • Creates a more collaborative org across functions (s/w facilitates that well!)
  • Nice interface for presenting data/analyses—reduces time to analyze, reduces concerns about “where is that data coming from…” issues with our old system.
