You likely already heard that SAP HANA SPS7 has now shipped?
Maybe you have already seen the presentations on what’s new in this release – such as Ronald Silberstein’s excellent introduction what’s new in SPS7 predictive?
So you now have a good feel about what’s in this release and are au fait with the new predictive algorithms for clustering, classification, time series, data preparation, and statistics?
However you might be wondering exactly how to get started in taking advantage of all these goodies? You’d like to see it as well as hear about it? If so – read on…
The SAP HANA Academy produce hands-on video tutorials covering all aspects of SAP HANA and we’ve published a whole bunch for SPS7 – and plenty more are in the works! We’ve already published a tutorial for each and every new SAP HANA predictive analysis library (PAL) algorithm – so if you want to see how to perform agglomerated hierarchical clustering, apply support vector machine learning, optimize you time series forecasting, partition your data, or deal with troublesome missing values in your data – now you can!
The main are in the academy for the PAL is here SAP HANA Academy
Here are direct links to all of the new PAL videos currently published that feature SPS7:
PAL: Forecast Smoothing
PAL: Clustering using Affinity Propagation
PAL: Clustering using Agglomerate Hierarchical
PAL: Data Partitioning
PAL: Substitute Missing Values
PAL: Classification using Support Vector Machine
PAL: Univariate Statistics
PAL: Multivariate Statistics
PAL: Statistics: Chi Squared test for Fitness
PAL: Statistics: Chi Squared test for independence
PAL: Statistics: Equal Variance Test
PAL: Apriori – new filters
PAL: Apriori – results in Relational Format
Also, here are some new AFL modeler tutorials that focus on new capabilities delivered with SPS7:
Application Function Modeler
AFM: Enhancements in SPS7
AFM: Link Prediction
AFM: Data Partitioning
Each tutorial is accompanied by the SQL script shown and you can also download the example data in order to try the algorithms out for yourself.
