What is SAP IBP Planning? 

SAP Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP) is a cloud-based intuitive solution that provides features to model supply chain planning scenarios. Integration of business-related data (master data and transactional data) by sourcing it from multiple peripheral solutions to SAP IBP is an important part of an end-to-end integrated supply chain. However, even a best-in-class planning system like SAP IBP will provide bad results if the input is inconsistent.
