SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced updates to
predictive analytics software that empower everyone — from sophisticated statisticians to business users — with predictive insight. Now generally available, version 1.0.11 of SAP® Predictive Analysis software offers more flexible modeling and performance, which can help users uncover new opportunities from big data in real time. Predictive analytics from SAP bring predictive capabilities to all decision-makers, enabling them to quickly identify untapped opportunities and respond to unforeseen risks. The announcement was made at
BI2013, being held

Forrester Research Inc. as a
leader in its report, "
The Forrester Wave: Big Data Predictive Analytics Solutions, Q1 2013,"* SAP Predictive Analysis delivers a complete data discovery, visualization and predictive analytics solution designed to extend current analytics capabilities and skillsets. It is an intuitive experience with enough power for data scientists to conduct sophisticated analysis using big data, yet simple enough to allow business analysts to conduct forward-looking analysis using departmental data from Excel.
The latest version of SAP Predictive Analysis delivers tighter integration with
SAP Lumira™ software for model visualization and business user empowerment. New innovations give users the ability to gain predictive foresight and make the best decisions without having to rely on data scientists to gain this intelligence. Combined with powerful, native predictive analytics library (PAL) for in-database processing that can fully exploit the power and speed of the
SAP HANA® platform, businesses can run what-if scenarios in real time and come up with the best possible outcome in spit seconds so they don't miss their window of opportunity. Additional enhancements include:
Greater flexibility to expand predictive model execution to other SAP applications, including SAP® Customer Relationship Management and SAP® Fraud Management, among others
Extended algorithm set with the ability to run any R-script
Faster execution against large data volumes
New data preparation techniques and functions for streamlined models
Richer displays of data and visualizations for improved analysis
Better analysis of data with more charting

Steve Lucas, executive vice president and general manager, Analytics and Database & Technology, SAP. "SAP is committed to helping customers unleash the power to predict and act on big data through the use of new analytics offerings that are intuitive, easy to implement and built on the real-time SAP HANA platform."
