Predictive Analytics: SAP Infinite Insights
Just recently I blogged about how SAP InfinteInsights reduces the requirements for Phd’s when getting into the area of predictive analytics. In October of 2013 SAP acquired KXEN, a leading provider of predictive analytics technology for business users and analysts. This brought the product that I commented on (KXEN InfiniteInsights, now SAP InfiniteInsights) into the SAP fold. Based upon the amount of views that the blog received, a lot of people are interested in the topic. With this in mind I decided to see if I could come up with some additional information / presentations for you.
For those of you who would like to see the product in action without spending too much time, I would like to recommend the following:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic94SR3ZXac a 14 minute video that is an introduction to some key concepts in the realm of predictive analytics and data mining by way of a detailed demonstration which walks you through the creation of classification and regression. In particular it show how the variables for analysis are selected by SAP InifinteInsights. This video shows just one aspect of the solution.
For a more formal presentation (includes for example, some business cases, and some customers results, reduced modeling time, value proposition, etc.). This video introduces the complete solution set (both OnPremise and In the Cloud). The video does takes about 50 min.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_RLwxgQ-0s . Please be patient with the video there were some communication problems at the start.
While some of the topics are mentioned in the first video, the topics are expanded and presented individually in the second video
Addition information can be obtained from Kxen http://www.kxen.com/ or SAP
