Globus Switzerland: Planning in fast motion
(Success Story in German language)
Integrated planning is extremely important for Globus. However, a constantly growing volume of data increasingly affected the system's response times. The introduction of SAP HANA is intended to accelerate Globus' planning and reporting processes and make them fit for the increasing demands of the coming years.
7 department stores, 800,000 articles in the total assortment and a network of 3,500 suppliers cause an enormous amount of data that is constantly growing
The more data has to be scanned, the longer a query to the system takes
Implementation of SAP BW on HANA
Instead of using SAP HANA to accelerate only the information that is frequently needed, Globus now stores all data from SAP NetWeaver BW in the in-memory appliance. Any query is thus considerably faster than before.
Up to 80 times faster database access in planning and reporting
4 times less memory requirements
Problem-free merging of all data from different areas of the company
Reduction of administrative workloads
Integrated planning is extremely important for Globus. We wanted to organise it more efficiently.
