For the last year, the SAP Predictive Analytics team has been delivering in-person workshops for customers, partners, and SAP employees.  These sessions cover the fundamental concepts of predictive modeling along with a number of best practices and demonstrations.  Feedback from attendees has been consistently high so we have worked to capture the essential information from these workshop in the following videos.

The videos are generally categorized into two major sections.  The first provides basic information on SAP Predictive Analytics, an overview of a typical predictive project, and step-by-step demonstrations for installing the software.  The second section dives into functional areas of SAP Predictive Analytics including data management, model development, and model debriefing.  Key focus areas include Data Manager, Automated Analytics, and Predictive Factory.

Please note all sessions were developed using SAP Predictive Analytics 3.x.  Links to the videos are included below.
