Advanced Analytics Mission – Reimagining the Predictive Experience

Reimagining the Predictive Experience


The Advanced Analytics mission is to help companies improve their bottom line by making their business processes and apps better with predictive techniques. Here are the key concepts of our approach…



Embedded in Business Processes and Apps

The real value of predictive analytics can only be achieved by embedding them into apps and tools used by the business users on a daily basis. The integration must be done in such a way that 1- business applications offer specific workflows with off-the-shelf predictive functions; 2- Data scientists have the option of replacing them by proprietary and more advanced predictive functions.

The Predictive Factory


No coding, just configuration!

Full predictive lifecycle – from data preparation, model building/rebuilding, model evaluation, model deployment and monitoring, versioning

Modeling automation – Ability to automate models for multiples segments by creating the first one and letting Predictive Analytics complete the task

Inclusive – embrace collaborative approach among non experts and experts


Low and High Touch User Experiences

Low touch user interface using wizard-based approach and automated

High touch (visual data pipeline framework) user interface supporting open languages (such as R, Scala, etc.)

Interoperability between both modes so results – scores, prediction, forecasts, etc… can be shared easily among coworkers and teams

Predictive Intellectual Property


Generic proprietary algorithms providing very good results in most data situations with no parameter tuning

Niche proprietary algorithms providing unmatched results in unique business context / data situation

Niche predictive IP to be available via a marketplace opened to partners and ISV



All-in-one Cloud for Analytics initially targeting analysts and business users with Exploratory Analytics

Model consumption for pre-packaged business scenarios

HCP Predictive Services targeting partners and integrators

Framework for model consumption in business applications on-demand applications

On Premise


Will be compatible and interoperable with the previous SAP investments:

Analytics platform (known as BI Platform)

SAP HANA computing platform – especially through  XS Advanced and SAP HANA Streaming


Big Data

Data Preparation compatible with ultra-wide data sets

Distribution of algorithms on scale-out architectures

Integration into Big Data streaming environments
