      Hello Venkat,

      Very informative blog, thank you.

      I tried to try the scenarios mentioned here & activated the CAL Predictive Analysis Content adoption trail. It did not come with the BO BI platform that seems the be the prerequisite for some scenarios such as Asset Break Down Analysis. The User Guide attached does not mention the BO BI platform though. Is it required to Visualize Asset Break Down Analysis, I do have HANA Studio & Predictive Analysis Desktop.

      I tried to view the simulation of RDS demos at

      it doesn't seem to work now, is there a latest working demo simulation that you are aware of.

      Thanks again for a great blog.

      Best regards,

      Hello Pavan,

      The community pre-rds is merged with the parent predictive analytics and you would see the latest release and the latest blogs here.

      In the CAL image, the scenarios related to HANA studio and Predictive Analytics work there. We have not instantiated the BO platform environment. ofcourse most of the use cases donot need BO platform environment to view the predicted results. Please see the alternative approaches for most of the scenarios in the lastet blog. The user guide in the CAL image documentation would explain what scenarios work without the BO platform environment.

      Please let me know if you have further questions.
