US: Levi Strauss to implement business intelligence tool
Jeanswear giant Levi Strauss & Co has selected Capgemini to develop an integrated business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse platform that will analyse the data flowing within the company.
As one of the world's largest brand-name apparel companies, Levi Strauss & Co leverages multiple BI and analytics systems to support its retail and wholesale business units.
Under the new deal, Capgemini will work with SAP and Teradata to implement the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) platform 4.0. This is designed to provide a single, global and broad-based view of the firm's data flow, and should also help Levi Strauss & Co drive revenue and decrease costs.
"Our continued success as a global business is dependent on our ability to react quickly to the data moving through our enterprise," explains Tammy Amirault, vice president application services, Levi Strauss & Co.
"It became clear a few years ago that we needed a solution that would give us a holistic view of our data across regions, while allowing us to accurately analyse it."
