Retail: Promotional Price Prediction

Image from: https://fmemodules.wordpress.com/2015/04/09/top-5-popular-sales-promotions-types-in-2015/

In retail deciding on promotional prices for an SKU can be challenging. It depends on several factors, including but not limited to Class, Subclass, Style of an SKU, Seasonal product,  Previous cost history, profits. Few Countries have a regulation for the retail stores to choose promotions only for a certain number of days in a whole year. Choosing the right promotions for the product at the right time, so profits are not affected and provide maximum customer satisfaction, is tedious and involves a lot of calculations. These calculations are not simple and would consume huge IO, CPU time, and memory with my experience with a large retail company and always misses SLA.
