PARIS – July 29, 2014 – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that two key modules within its Extreme Applications for Retail solution, part of its Ready2Series* – Market Basket Analyses 1.0 and Next Best Action 1.0 – have achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP HANA® platform. Both modules have been certified to run on the SAP HANA platform, providing retailers with the ability to make purchase recommendations in real time, based on customer behavior.
Market Basket Analyses and Next Best Action aim to help retailers react more quickly to trends in sales and adapt their up/cross sell potential, using unique analytics capabilities based on a broad set of merchandise-specific information including point-of-sale data. By cross analyzing customer sales, behavior and sentiment analysis, interactions between brand and customer, retailers become better able to identify the next best offer or action for a specific customer at any point of time. The SAP Integration and Certification Center has now certified that Market Basket Analyses 1.0 and Next Best Action 1.0 integrate with the SAP HANA platform.
