Explore SAP Analytics Cloud augmented analytics features – from natural language processing to AI-powered data discovery, analysis, visualisation, and prediction. Embedded in SAP Analytics Cloud’s BI and planning workflows, the features democratize analytics and help everyone go from insight to action in a fraction of the time.


Search to Insight: Natural language processing and query

The Search to Insight feature lets you chat with your data using conversational AI and natural language processing (NLP). With natural language query (NLQ), you can search and analyse your data by asking questions – just like you would with a search engine or digital personal assistant. No knowledge of query languages like SQL, R, or Python is required. Get insightful answers to your questions immediately with best practice visualisation tailored for your needs.


Smart Insights: Instant context and explanation

The Smart Insights feature lets you dig deeper into your data visualisations without manual effort. With a click, you can reveal the top contributors behind values or variances, understand the factors contributing to your KPIs, and more. Sophisticated algorithms run on the fly to suggest additional visualisations you may want to add to your data story – along with text explanations and context generated in natural language.


Smart Discovery: Automated insights and data storytelling

With the Smart Discovery feature, you can use automated machine learning models to reveal relationships and hidden patterns in a specific dataset – without the help of a data scientist and without human bias. Automatically generate data visualisations and comprehensive, up to four-page data stories that surface important insights, including trends, key influencers and outliers, and enable interactive what-if simulation.


Smart Predict: One-click predictive analytics tools

With the Smart Predict feature, you can predict outcomes and generate forecasts with the push of a button. Use three types of machine learning algorithms – classification, regression, and time-series analysis – to automate sophisticated predictive analysis and augment your BI experience with more data and insight. Predictive planning enabled from the seamless integration of time-series forecasting and planning let users build more accurate and detailed business plans, faster, and with more efficiency.
