About Forecasting Requirements
Siebel Forecasting provides you with many implementation options. With the importance that forecasting plays in most organizations, and the variety of implementation choices available, you must fully understand these choices. A thorough understanding of your company's business requirements can make sure that you have the information needed to improve your organization's technology and business offerings for the entire sales organization.
The ultimate goal is to address the business requirements with less overhead and a higher level of accuracy in a more timely manner. Sometimes, the best way to understand the requirements is to look at your company's existing process to make sure you cover the basics, and then to evaluate possible opportunities for improvement. You can begin gathering requirements with a list of the reports, screens, systems, and processes that are currently in place. From there, you can drill down on the business process to get a better understanding of the overall objectives and process.
