At first after running this forecast at How to Forecast Store Traffic with Predictive Analysis I was wondering how to visualize the results.  At first I thought I had to output the results to a .CSV file and then visualize in SAP BusinessObjects Lumira ?

I started down this path:

Under Database Writes and selected CSV Writer

I put the file path in

Then you have to “Run” the Analysis

Then I could open it in Lumira as a datasource (or Predictive).

However, you can select “Visualize” instead.

I can select Triple Exponential Smoothing.

I needed to create a measure for the predicted values, just using a right-click.

Then I can use the normal visualizations (Lumira):

Or visualize the predictions in a line chart and hover over to see the values:

I haven’t read the help yet, thus showing this is easy to use.
