You are an SAP partner and want to shine within the SAP ecosystem?
You have built some expertise on predictive analysis and want all SAP Predictive Analytics’ customers know about it?
Your customers expect you to deliver cloud solutions embedding high end predictive technology?
As a member of the Analytics Product Management family, I’m happy to present two programs which have been built for you.
HANA Cloud Platform predictive services
Just a week ago, we have released our HANA Cloud Platform predictive services.
I warmly encourage you to read Ashish’s blog to know more about this offer, but in a nutshell, you can now leverage the power of Hana Cloud Platform and the richness of SAP Predictive Analytics technology to build ad-hoc cloud applications for your customers. The easy to use, RESTful Web Services, help you focus on the business value as you don’t require data scientist nor deep development technical skills to leverage them.
As we are convinced that this mix offers huge potential, we’re actively looking for early adopters with whom we want to collaborate and help build solutions which addresses real life use cases.
SAP Analytics Extensions Directory
The other opportunity I want to shed some light on is the SAP Analytics Extensions Directory.
As you can see at the first glance, this website exposes partner extensions in order for SAP customers to build their solutions with a mix of products from SAP and extensions (add-ons, tools, content) from partners.
The beauty of it is that we help customers to identify partners which can help them solve their business needs. Once the connection is established, we, SAP, are not anymore in the middle. In other words, the relationship with customers is up to you, partners, as well as the business model you want to use (paid extensions / free extensions + paid service).
In the context of SAP Predictive Analytics, this is a unique opportunity to showcase your know-how by publishing ad hoc R algorithms you have developed.
If we add that coming in SAP Predictive Analytics 2.5 (planned to be generally available in the near future) there will be an icon linking to the directory plus a way to encrypt your R code (and protect your IP), I guess the benefit for partners to participate to the program is obvious.
Not mentioning the fact that participation to this program is totally free of charge.
Still need yet another argument to jump in?
The directory recently opened and the traffic is already pretty high.
Don’t miss out this opportunity to showcase your expertise in predictive analysis, increase your visibility and eventually your business!
