SAP APO with SAP liveCache 7.4
A technical brief. SAP liveCache is based on a main memory extension of SAP DB technology, in use since SAP APO 1.1. If there are resource- intensive planning issues, SAP APO transfers performance-critical application logic to the SAP liveCache instance. The data required for these processes is transferred to SAP liveCache where it is kept persistent. In this way, the task is performed where the data is located, to ensure the highest possible performance. In addition, subtasks of single planning processes can take place in parallel (in Demand Planning, for example) through the use of multiple central processing units (CPU) of the SAP liveCache server. The security of planning data is guaranteed.
