Business Challenge story

Clarks’ business depends on identifying the shoes consumers want, and delivering them rapidly. To do so, the company must quickly gather and analyze information from its fast-growing customer base.


With IBM® FlashSystem® 840 storage, Clarks gains ultra-fast read performance for the central SAP solution supporting its UK, US and Asian businesses.


By cutting essential batch runs by up to 50 percent, or five hours, the solution helps guarantee timely delivery of orders to customers and the delivery of daily reports to drive better decision-making.
