SAP Analytics Cloud provides you with many artificial intelligence and machine learning utilities to assist you in your data analysis and planning activities.
The topics below are covered in more detail in the Applying AI-powered Augmented Analytics to Business Data in SAP Analytics Cloud learning journey.
- Predictive Forecast
- Run an algorithm to project out time frames based on historical data. The more historical data there is, the more accurate the prediction. Predictive forecasting takes different values into account, and also looks at trends, cycles, and fluctuations in your data.
- Search to Insight
- Request information in natural language simply by typing a question about your data. You can access this feature from the Home page or from the Search to Insight icon in the main horizontal menu.
- Smart Insight
- Right-click a chart element or data point in a table, and the system adds context. For example, in a table with a total salary value, SAP Analytics Cloud can help determine what the key contributors are to that total.
- Smart Predict
- Create one or several predictive models that automatically learn from your historical data, and find the best relationships or patterns of behavior to easily generate predictions for future events, values, and trends.
Some of these augmented features are unique to either live or imported data models, and some apply to both.
