Did you already hear about the recent release of SAP HANA Cloud Platform predictive services?
Are you familiar with this new way to access powerful predictive functionality that runs in-memory in HANA yet is easily accessible via RESTful web services? No SQL necessary!
Here at the SAP HANA Academy we’ve put together a series of hands-on video tutorials that show the basics of predictive services from both an admin and developer perspective.
The first video tutorial covers getting started topics such as where to find the documentation.
Tutorials 2,3 & 4 cover the one time setup process for new HCP landscapes – admin tasks.
If you just want to get a feel for how to develop with predictive services you can jump straight into tutorial #5 “First Steps”.
Tutorials 6-11 cover the individual services in more depth – dataset, key influencer, scoring equation, forecast, outliers and what-if?
UPDATE 17th March 2016: Tutorials 12-18 cover how to create a HTML5 app using SAP Web IDE that incorporates predictive services.
Each tutorial includes an example and you can follow along yourself as all data and code snippets have been posted to our GitHub repository.
