Can you use your Universe in BI4 to Predict the Future?
See if you can use SAP Predictive Analysis with a BI4 Universe to predict the future
In my previous blog about Predictive Analysis, now in Ramp-up, I was connecting to a spreadsheet/.CSV file. Predictive works fine with those – but what about connecting to a BI4 universe?
Figure 1 shows the data readers Predictive Analysis can use. This blog covers BI4 Universe reader.
After I drag over the BI4 universe reader, I need to enter the host name, user name, password and authentication
Figure 3 shows the authentication options to sign in to the BI4 platform
Figure 4 shows the familiar eFashion universe that is available
Figure 5 shows the familiar query panel for the Universe. Here I am selecting year/week and sales revenue for eFashion.
Figure 6 shows the preview of the universe
I drag over the algorithm for time series. Figure 7 shows the settings – I select forecast, in months, and the start year is 1 – I select 24 periods to project in the future.
Figure 8 shows the predicted values
Figure 9 graphically depicts the predicted values
