SAS Cost and Profitability Management (CPM )is an activity-based cost modeling application. CPM is client-server-based and features unlimited user-defined dimensionality. Recently, CPM has been upgraded to run on the SAS in-memory calculation engine. This in-memory engine enables CPM to quickly process big data volumes and execute intensive allocation and calculation rules. The full SAS software environment must be run in order to use the in-memory engine. SAS Cost and Profitability Management is typically purchased along with SAS ETL and visual reporting products.
