SAP Predictive Analytics Certification Training

SAP Predictive Analytics Certification Training

SAP Predictive Analytics is a business software from SAP that works with the HANA Platform. It is basically designed for the organization to evaluate the large set of data and to predict the future consequences. Predictive Analytics allows you to create the predictive models to determine the concealed perceptions and relationships in the data. SAP Predictive Analytics was initially released in 2015 and integrates the features of two separate analytics products. In 2012, SAP had released the SAP Predictive Analysis. It is an advanced analysis tool specifically designed for data scientists.

SAP Predictive analytics work with previous data, based which the data visualization reports with future predictions can be made. On the basis of these reports, the organization is able to recognize the hidden stuff and can arrive at the determinations. It inherits some of the functionalities from HANA. It is basically a statistical analysis and data mining solution based on which the predictive models can be created. By utilizing predictive analysis, the various investigations on data, time series forecasting, trend analysis, classification analysis, segmentation and affinity analysis can be performed. The data can be analyzed using different visualization techniques, for example decision trees, cluster charts. The pre-built predictive algorithms are composed in the open-source statistical programming language, using these algorithms the users can visualize and analyze the data and then sequence the predictive models to carry out complex analysis.
