The SAP CAR solution provides you with ‘game changing’ support for reporting, analytics and business planning. CAR provides intuitive, decision-ready access to key business performance criteria (e.g., customer profitability, customer trends, sales, in-stock). Also, CAR allows data to be stored at the lowest level (e.g., TLOG for sales transactions). No more wasted hardware for storing data aggregations. All data is reported directly from the lowest level of data capture. Additionally, CAR is powered by HANA which allows for sub-second reporting and analytics response times. No more wasted time and hardware on data indexing. Finally, CAR provides both a platform for reporting and analytics as well as planning for key retail business processes (e.g., promotions, assortment, financial). No more data redundancy and replication required to send, for example, sales to multiple databases for planning business process support. CAR provides a single database to support all planning or ‘consuming applications’ that leverage CAR.
