Integrating Machine Learning to your SAP HANA Platform
Artificial Intelligence is one of biggest drivers of today’s digital world. AI has already become the part of our everyday life.
Machine Learning is a subset of AI that empowers the system to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. The success of Machine Learning depends on the quantum of data. It requires large sets of data augmented with a whole range of algorithms.
As technology advances, enterprises are migrating or have already moved to SAP ERPs, so for better success it is best to sync Machine Learning with your SAP database.
Running Machine Learning algorithms where your data resides—in the database—can help reduce latency and alleviate other delays that arise when copying data to another server.
The tango between Machine Learning and SAP
SAP HANA Predictive Analytics
SAP Hana’s Predictive Analytics provides machine learning capabilities through in-memory database. SAP Hana predictive analytics library (part of AFL) provides data analysts and developers with automated, wizard-driven machine-learning capabilities and it can create algorithms to build predictive models and provide better controls for the data scientist.
PAL also has several algorithms that ML learns and continuously updates for dynamic predictions.
Open-Source Machine Learning
SAP Hana also facilitates open source machine learning frameworks, R integration is one of them. R is an open-source programming language designed for statistical computing and advanced analysis. Users can write R code in HANA and then mix and match those programs with PAL Algorithms.
Main advantage here is that businesses can utilize the power of SAP HANA and user-expertise for scalability as well as performance through R scripts
HANA inbuilt Machine Learning Integration
SAP’s Extended Machine Learning Library (EML) provides machine learning inference on data at rest or in motion. ML models can be built in tens or flow using python packages to build complex deep learning integration.
Deep learning brings in ability to solve complex inspection and build algorithms, Identifies every defect outside if the set tolerance and processes prediction at very fast pace.
