At SAP TechEd 2012, Taulia was featured in Vishal Sikka’s keynote as the first SAP HANA startup live in production on AWS (Amazon Web Services). But what problem do they solve for customers? And is there something SAP HANA can do for them that other solutions can’t?

To find out, Dennis took a trip to Taulia world headquarters in San Francisco and came back with this video. Joe Hyland, Senior Director of Marketing for Taulia, gives the lowdown on CloudFinance and how the solution can make big businesses more profitable via the automation of discount capture.  Markus (Max) Ament, Chief Product Officer, chimes in during the second half of the shoot to provide more context on why reinventing discounting means big data. Screen shots are included.
