JUMBO recently performed a successful implementation of the SAP Customer Activity Repository (CAR) solution. This solution is a foundation that collects transactional (POS) data and provides a common foundation with a harmonized multichannel transaction data model for all consuming applications, in (near) real-time. Retailers, like JUMBO, can use SAP CAR as a first step to gradually transform their system landscapes from traditional database technology to the revolutionary, in-memory database technology.
Bas van Dijke is Senior Managing Consultant SAP Analytics at IBM and was involved in the CAR project from end-to-end perspective. He still works at JUMBO and will share the experience from this project on behalf of the customer. He has been fully involved in the CAR project and still is.
