With this release we are shipping nine additional machine learning innovations, adding up to a total of 16 machine learning scenarios, that lead the way to greater automation and fewer errors in business transactions. As an example, we have a machine learning highlight in Manufacturing that predicts the arrival date of stock in transit. Thanks to this accurate supply and demand data, enterprises can increase their inventory turnover and reduce the number of days in inventory.
On top of the great machine learning innovations we are shipping this quarter, we are also delivering a completely new user experience based on natural language interaction using SAP CoPilot. Thanks to this we can ship many innovations in different Lines of Business, for example, in Enterprise Portfolio and Project Management you can now ask SAP CoPilot for important details about your projects. In addition to this, the Line of Business Sourcing and Procurement is extending its range of situation handling scenarios which proactively alert users to any business risks or business opportunities that customers can leverage for their business transactions.
