Did you create a separate / custom project to report on volume forecasts? Or did you use CT out of the box to report on both financial and volume forecasts together? And, of course...why did you choose one over the other?
Yes Kim, this can be done. We created a "Quantity" model in the ITCT and applied a rate table in the "Price" model to support the price-cost comparison.
I am curious to know what process does your company follow to get the volume forecasts - is there a enterprise wide demand management process ; use volume trends etc.
Yes, we have an Enterprise Demand Management process to gather the input. We take the data directly from Finance now where before we had folks entering the data manually.
Is Finance responsible for gathering demand data from the business. e.g. "There will be a demand of x number of net new physical servers for 2019". Who answers that question and who is responsible for consolidating answers from the business? Should it be Finance or should it be Infrastructure services owner?
Finance solicits demand forecasts from the business partner finance focals to understand the net new volumes. Unfortunately, these are billable units so we aren't necessarily able to use it for capacity planning.
