SAP Analytics Cloud is an Excellent Platform and Tool for Story Boarding Business Analytics and Planning Functions for Enterprise Needs.

However , there’s no limitation on how SAC visualization may be used it for other use cases like image analysis considering it might be needed for integrating it with business data content analytics solutions or as standalone facial or image data analytics could be the use case for SAC.

Shared below are results of an exercise done for play and fun and exploring the possibilities.

The application is making a real time call to recognize or estimate the Gender, Age and Mood from the facial image of the picture being used.



The underlying solution can capture details for all or multiple people in the image.

      Hello, It was an exercise primarily to explore - architectural possibilities , arguably opening up back door for application development, may not be the preferred way, though proved it is feasible. I will try to write in detail the steps taken soon.


      1. Connected SAC with External R Environment & using it
      2. Used Microsofts Machine Learning Trained Model on Cognitive Services for Face (characteristics) detection ; I found out it provides the most details amongst its peer services providers.
