We showcase how SAP business applications can benefit from an open-partner ecosystem and intelligent spatial services.

Performing Data Science with SAP HANA Cloud

by christoph.morgen 

This lecture overviews how embedded machine learning, spatial, and other advanced processing capabilities in SAP HANA can be leveraged by data scientists from Python. Beginning with data exploration, visualization, and analysis with for example, predictive analysis library (PAL) functions, we pivot into how to pass on such analysis scenarios to applications or developers for operationalization in the SAP HANA Cloud data platform.

Multi-model Data Processing with SAP HANA Cloud

by markus.fath & mathias.kemeter 

Look at combining the power of spatial data analysis and graph processing in the SAP HANA Cloud data platform. See highlights of processing capabilities integrated in a multi-model engine. Incorporate spatial dimensions into advanced analytics and machine-learning models, and improve the value of insights derived from data, including location intelligence.
