SAP Predictive Analytics 2.4 was released at the end of November 2015 and introduced some significant new capabilities - especially regarding the Automated Predictive Library (APL) in SAP HANA and how SAP Predictive Analytics 2.4 desktop can exploit it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: SAP Predictive Analytics desktop is no longer available to new customers. For more information see:

To complement this, the HANA Academy has now published a major refresh of the hands-on video tutorials series covering the APL.

The series goes all the way from first steps in get started with the APL to how to install and configure SAP Predictive Analytics 2.4 and delegate processing down to the APL in HANA.

Here are direct links to the new video tutorials:

I hope these help you get going with the combination of SAP Predictive Analytics 2.4 and SAP HANA SPS 10 - or perhaps discover something new if you already have some experience.
