SAP Analytics Cloud provides you with many artificial intelligence and machine learning utilities to assist you in your data analysis and planning activities.
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. For example, predictive forecasting takes different values into account, and also looks at trends, cycles, and fluctuations in your data.
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.
Create a story automatically with supervised machine learning using regression for measures and classifications if you select a dimension.
