APOS Live Data Gateway Use Case – Snowflake, Retail

High-performance, live data connectivity between
SAP Analytics Cloud and Snowflake Data Cloud

A large, Europe-based retailer running multiple chains of retail stores had consolidated legacy financial data from decades of corporate activities and acquisitions in Snowflake Data Cloud. They needed their analysts to have access to this data in SAP Analytics Cloud to extract KPI and other comparative data to drive better business decisions moving forward.
