Course information

Course Summary

Our previous course How to Use the Machine Learning Cockpit for SAP Business ByDesign introduced you to features, concepts, and processes behind the Machine Learning Cockpit using the Sales Quote Item success prediction as an example. Now it’s time to expand your knowledge to a larger variety of other business scenarios.

In this course we’ll present the implementation of eight additional best practice business scenarios which can be addressed with the help of the Machine Learning Cockpit for SAP Business ByDesign:

The purpose of the course is:

  • to provide you with a quick start for implementing and deploying the use cases documented in SAP Help
  • to further strengthen your confidence working with the Machine Learning Cockpit
  • to inspire you to start designing your own use cases

You’ll get practical hands-on experience in using business analytics to prepare your data sets through joined cloud data sources, creating scenarios, models, and prediction runs, and consuming those predictions both in the SAP Business ByDesign user interface or as reports in business analytics.
