In SAP Business ByDesign release 2211 we are introducing Machine Learning Cockip.



Machine Learning Cockpit for SAP Business ByDesign is SAP implementation of standard machine learning workflow within SAP Business ByDesign user interface.

Machine Learning Cockpit (MLC) brings Predictive Analytics capabilities to Business ByDesign by utilizing the power of Predictive Analytical Library (PAL) of SAP HANA of Business ByDesign tenant.

The tool allows users to create predictive scenarios by using data of Business Analytics data sources, on which PAL machine learning algorithms try to learn the model in the training process. This model can be applied to new data to make actual predictions. The predictions can be then consumed directly in the Business ByDesign business documents, in Business Analytics, or in PDI solutions (through provided API).


Machine Learning Cockpit (MLC) is relevant to partners who want to provide their customers intelligent solutions that are based on analytical predictions.


Machine Learning Cockpit (MLC) implements standard ML workflow directly in Business ByDesign user interface. Users are guided through the ML workflow in an easy-to-use interface. Thus, users can focus on the business context of their predictive scenarios and do not have to deal with the complexity of Predictive Analytical Library (PAL).

The MLC is a fully embedded solution. All the data used in the pre-processing, model training and predictions never leave Business ByDesign tenant.
