SAP Datasphere


SAP announces additional features in SAP Datasphere to help customers continue streamlining their business data fabric and improve interoperability.

In Q4, 2023 SAP Datasphere Semantic Onboarding will be generally available. This is a fresh new approach to building data products and enabling other domains to self-serve and securely distribute them.

SAP HANA Cloud vector capabilities

SAP HANA Cloud’s multi-model capabilities will be expanded by vector capabilities to fully leverage the power of generative AI.

SAP HANA Cloud vector capabilities will be enabling customers to manage unstructured data, such as – text, images, audio as vector embeddings.

This new capability provides the long-term memory and context that generative AI models need to understand the complexities of businesses as they evolve over time and to generate accurate and relevant responses.

SAP HANA Cloud’s new vector capabilities will not only simplify interactions with large language models, but also empower developers to implement generative AI securely within their intelligent data applications.

This innovation will be available in Q1 of 2024.

SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud has become faster than ever before. Lightweight Viewer performance is up to 60% faster compared to the classical SAC stack.

Getting insights quicker with Just Ask. With natural language interaction, it’s easier to interact with the system to get the insights you need.

Just Ask’s integration with SAP Analytics Cloud complements SAP’s generative AI copilot, Joule. Just Ask will be available to most of the existing SAP Analytics Cloud enterprise customers starting in Q1.

SAP Business AI

Generative AI is everywhere and will reinvent the way how we run our businesses in many innovative ways.

SAP announces the release of generative AI hub in SAP AI Core, planned for general availability by December 2023. Generative AI hub provides developers instant access to a broad range of large language models, including Azure OpenAI and Falcon-40b. More models, including Meta’s Llama2 and Aleph Alpha, are expected to be added early next year.

With generative AI hub, you can also leverage grounding capabilities based on enterprise data via SAP HANA Cloud vector capabilities.

Medium- to long-term plans include additional capabilities such as prompt management with templates, libraries, the ability to fine-tune support for scenarios requiring deeper domain-specific context and building proprietary SAP tabular transformer-based models.

Infusing GenAI in BTP

SAP showcased future-looking preview scenarios in which generative AI is infused into SAP BTP to increase the productivity of SAP BTP application developers, administrators, integration developers, etc.

      Being able to combine vector DB capabilities with relational and other Hana features (graph DB!) will be a game changer IMHO
