Just in time for the holidays, Vendavo has just announced the General Availability of Vendavo Profit Analyzer™ for SAP HANA®. We at Vendavo think this is a great present for HANA…in fact, as I pointed out in the birthday post earlier, we think we have THE killer app. HANA is proving to be a disruptive technology in Enterprise software, but the applications it powers are what will make it truly game changing.
So, what does the killer app for HANA look like? In short, it solves an urgent and pervasive problem with game changing technology that has a clear ROI. Let’s look at how Vendavo Profit Analyzer™ for SAP HANA® meets these criteria:
1. It solves an urgent problem: Companies are in business to make profits, and since the downturn, they are increasingly looking for ways to increase profitability. Pricing is a proven lever in improving profitability.
2. It solves a pervasive problem: Suboptimal pricing processes and practices exist in a dozen industries, span mid-market to large enterprises, and occur in all geographies.
3. It is game changing: The in-memory speed and scale, combined with reduced ETL and simplified data architecture make a previously impossible to solve problem now affordable to address.
4. It has clear ROI: Price and margin management is, simply put, the most valuable enterprise software investment most companies can make. Returns of 1-7% on sales of pure profit are measurable, proven, and demonstratable.
We look forward to helping customers sell more profitably in the New Year and beyond with speed and scale that is unprecedented in this space!
