The contest drew 26 contenders, and all created a solution for the SAP HANA® platform. Ciber ProfitBoost-Sales is the initial offering in Ciber's ProfitBoost(TM) solution suite. The suite also contains Ciber ProfitBoost-Procurement, which helps organizations analyze and optimize profits in procurement. Upcoming modules will support companies in finding additional potential profit gains through materials management and assembly, as well as manufacturing. Ciber ProfitBoost-Sales and Ciber ProfitBoost-Procurement are planned to be generally available in the second quarter of 2013. Designed for either on-premises or cloud-based, on-demand delivery, Ciber ProfitBoost is based on SAP® Predictive Analysis software. It leverages algorithms in SAP Predictive Analysis with data mining capabilities in SAP HANA to help organizations identify, explore and, ultimately, realize incremental potential profit in sales, delivery and procurement. Ciber ProfitBoost also integrates with the SAP ERP application, allowing companies to leverage their existing customer, vendor, product, sales and procurement data and apply predictive analytics to determine pricing adjustments that raise profit without impacting new costs. The solution gives users an executive summary showing the potential profits ready to be realized, as well as detailed recommendations based on actionable reports. "One of the factors that differentiates Ciber ProfitBoost from other solutions in this competition is that Ciber not only used the speed of the SAP HANA platform but also the built-in predictive algorithms of it," said Volker Kyra, Ciber's alliance director for SAP in Germany.
