The clothing division alone has hundreds of thousands of SKUs, making inventory management extremely complex. Efficiently managing the flow of goods therefore requires a highly flexible and reliable processes and software. With Board and bdg, Sainsbury found the ideal solution to optimise inventory management.

Good planning is crucial for business success. This is especially true in the fast-food business, where speed of response and quick adaptation to changing consumer trends are essential. As the business grew, so did KFC's restaurant planning requirements, which meant that the Excel-based planning system was soon unable to keep pace with growth and needed to be replaced with a more powerful solution.

STRATO and bdg jointly developed the concept for the implementation of a BI/CPM solution for controlling. Board was chosen as the software; the intuitive and user-friendly design of the application was particularly decisive, enabling it to be used as a self-service BI.

The classic Excel-based planning process for merchandise planning reached its limits with the constant growth of Zalando, Europe's largest online platform for fashion. Too time-consuming, error-prone and not very homogeneous: Merchandise planning was no longer in line with the dynamic business environment and was in danger of completely losing sight of important key factors in an overly sluggish planning process. Zalando relied on bdg to implement a complex solution in Jedox for merchandise planning. The result: the planning time and effort were radically reduced and the quality of the planning was significantly increased.

The bdg and EOS project aimed to establish an integrated financial accounting system through automation and process optimization that minimizes manual effort, improves data consistency and reduces the susceptibility to errors. Since the performance management software Jedox was already in use in several corporate departments, the high flexibility of the application should also be used for this project and the new solution should be integrated into the existing application landscape.

When are modernizations due, which contracts are about to expire? The solution developed by bdg and alstria for property planning in the real estate industry collects these and countless other data in one slick application. Planning and controlling are easier, and media discontinuities are avoided. All in all: an absolute win.

Can BI/CPM applications reflect the highly complex experiences of long-term employees? That works! With Siemens Energy and bdg. Where are the limits? We won't know until we reach them. In this project with Siemens Energy, bdg uses the full functionality of Jedox and once again pushes the boundaries of what is possible.
