We've recently added Smart Discovery in Stories to SAP Analytics Cloud. Smart Discovery is an existing augmented analytics capability in SAP Analytics Cloud that leverages machine learning to explain the trends and patterns in your data that influence key figures.

In this latest version, Smart Discovery in Stories, an SAP Analytics Cloud story is generated automatically to describe the trends and patterns in your data that drive a key figure.  This accelerates your workflow, allowing you to move quickly from a question, such as what influences a key figure (like revenue), to an SAP Analytics Cloud story that allows you to understand and interact with the information contained in your data.

The augmented analytics capabilities in SAP Analytics Cloud assist you in finding actionable information faster.

Smart Discovery in Stories allows you to select a target, which is the Measure/Dimension you want to investigate, and leverages machine learning to generate a story containing a data-driven analysis of your data that explains your target.  This contrasts with traditional approaches where lots of time is spent visualizing and exploring data in order to obtain actionable information.

Smart Discovery in stories generates a multi-tab story containing information appropriate to the data. The story generated depends on the underlying data and will contain all or some of the following tabs.
