Brian Houston of K2 Professionals looks over a book at the SAP PRESS booth at the recent SAPinsider Logistics and Supply Chain Management 2011 conference in Orlando. Brian spoke at the conference on the difference between SAP ERP and SAP Advanced Planning & Optimization. A key point he presented is that traditional SAP ERP has more limited planning capabilities than SAP APO. He said people attending his session were interested in resource requirements for implementing SAP APO as well as in optimization. By the way, the book he was looking at was Sales and Inventory Planning with SAP APO. The conference will be repeated in Paris April 13-15, 2011.
