You likely already heard that SAP HANA SPS08 is generally available?

The SAP HANA Academy produce hands-on video tutorials covering all aspects of SAP HANA and of course we’ve got SPS08 fully covered!

Here's the main playlist: SAP HANA SPS 08 - What's New

We've published a tutorial for each and every new SAP HANA predictive analysis library (PAL) algorithm as well as covering key enhancements to existing algorithms - so if you want to see how we enable predictive maintenance, distribution fitting, K-medoids clustering, ARIMA forecasting, FP-growth association analysis, CART decision tree, random number generation, or simply how to cancel long running algorithms – now you can!

Here are direct links to all of the new PAL videos currently published that feature SPS08:
