Keynote Video: How Nestlé Deployed Predictive Analytics For Better Planning
Watch On-Demand

How can you make sure that in a fast changing environment, your demand planning methodology stays at the cutting edge? When it comes to gaining competitive advantage in the business of today, traditional forecasting models and planning are not always enough - especially for industries that rely on multiple new product launches every year. The answer lies in predictive analytics.

Nestlé has successfully implemented predictive analytics on a global scale. We knew that deploying this technology across our multiple regions required not only predictive analytic models and the knowledge to extract insights from them, but also a robust S&OP process where analytics is a key input. In that sense, you must ensure your analytics initiatives go beyond being just experiments, and make sure they are fully integrated and respected as growth drivers.

Watch this keynote presentation from IBF’s Business Planning, Forecasting & S&OP conference in Amsterdam 2017, and you’ll learn how to recruit the right people and localize them in an efficient way to establish analytics as your company’s tool for better insight and planning.

You will learn:

  • How Nestlé integrated predictive analytics into its S&OP processes on a global scale
  • How predictive analytics responds to major changes happening now in demand planning
  • How to adapt your organisation to take advantage of predictive analytics with practical tips

For more insight into predictive analytics, planning and S&OP from global leaders in the field, join IBF’s Business Planning, Forecasting & S&OP Conference in Amsterdam, from 14-16 November 2018. The biggest event of it’s kind in Europe, it features speakers from Innocent Drinks, Johnson & Johnson, AbbVie, Cole Haan, Reckit Benckiser, Heineken and more.

After graduating in Mechanical Engineering and taking a Masters in Business, Olivier started his career at Nestlé in France as an internal auditor. He worked his way up to audit team leader before moving into Supply Chain, where he worked on a project integrating the Nestlé European Pet Food Division.
