SAP Analytics Cloud Smart Features
With analytics based on artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, the Smart Features solutions suite for SAP Analytics Cloud will help business users make critical business-related decisions. The benefits of using these features include smart link detection, automated multi-level analysis, and time series forecasting. I will explain more details about their capabilities below.
Search to Insight
Search to Insight provides conversational business analytics by answering user questions using artificial intelligence algorithms. Access to this feature is very intuitive, and it can be reached from the search bar on the home screen or from any location by clicking the light bulb icon located on the toolbar.
Artificial intelligence allows you to ask questions and get immediate answers in the form of visualized data. Autocomplete suggestions make it easy to match words or phrases in inquiries related to measures or dimensions. After processing natural language queries, the information you need will be displayed in numeric or graphical form. The video below shows how this feature works step by step.
Smart Insight makes it easy to interpret graphs and gain a deeper understanding of your data – instead of manually identifying all the measures and dimensions associated with the object you are analyzing, Smart Insight will do it for you in no time. To launch Smart Insight, simply right-click in the object element you want to check and then select the light bulb icon.
Smart Insight captures the data point or, in other words, the variance in the data and explores what is behind the information. It allows you to instantly find many connections between data and add them to your visualization to help you understand the elements you are analyzing. By watching the video below, you will get an overview of how this feature works.
Smart Discovery automatically builds a predictive model, making it easy to see connections between data. The results are presented on separate pages, keeping the information organized and allowing you to make key business decisions based on the company data. To run Smart Discovery, enter a data view, select a model, and then choose the measure or dimension you want to analyze closely.
Smart Discovery is a highly advanced feature that uses machine learning to analyze and explore data and uncover valuable information. Smart Data Discovery helps save time by running automated machine learning algorithms to find correlations between elements of a data set and a target metric, allowing Smart Discovery to identify key factors that influence the selected measure or dimension. The following video illustrates how this feature works.
Smart Predict is an enhanced data analytics feature essential for forecasting and predicting events, values, or trends. You can use this feature to configure predictive scenarios depending on your forecasting needs. The video below will give you a better understanding of its use. Watch the video below for more details.
