Board is a useful tool with a great set of features. We migrated from human apps to board and we find it relatively fast in search results and better-managed threads and forums. There are some areas, such as UI and interactions which could be improved but overall a great product. The learning section is also pretty good.

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.

Read full review Cons Board BI tool has a steep learning curve and can be challenging for a new user to reach to board's full capacity. We have to use a windows scheduler to schedule data import tasks; it would be great if Board could provide its own scheduler. Read full review 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. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

From a user perspective, Board is quite simple to use. You
can evaluate the presentation of the data, the navigation, the configuration of the users, the selection of the data etc ... It would have a better rating if it were even more intuitive as regards the construction of a project, starting from the database, to the info-cubes, to entities, to data acquisition procedures from other servers.

The only time I needed assistance was due to a problem in
the prints: the colors of the brochures as they were on the screen were not reproduced in the print, but a series of standard colors were reproduced. This fact made colored numbers on a colored background illegible. From the assistance they confirmed that it was a problem of version 10.2 that occurred when leaving the brochures with the default colors proposed by Board. To obtain the desired colors, they had to be personalized ... I didn't like the solution very much and the technician who recommended it didn't like me either, but they would have solved the problem with the following versions. In any case, the assistance was quick and effective even if not exactly efficient. Read full review In-Person Training
Board is fairly simple and straight forward. Advance training on workflows and procedures is a good one but the training content only touches through the interesting areas. training content needs to cover a few areas more in-depth

The problem of user profiling in our context is certainly
quite complex. The complexity is given by the fact that the company is divided territorially into logistic points of sale, but at the same time they are virtually divided into divisions (or specific implementation areas) and points of sale of competence. The same operator can have access to data at different logistic sales points, sales points of competence and divisions. Read full review Alternatives Considered
Board has been more complete when compared to
. Although I didn't participate in the buying decision of any of those products I have used both and by far Board just has more features. It's more than a CPM, it's BI and CPM put together. If I had to make a choice now it would be Board.

We were already using
APO, but when implemented S4 HANA 2021 we learned that SCM is going to obsolete and all new features will be added to IBP so we have started using IBP now itself. Better to start early than being tagged as "late entrant"
