SAP Announces Predictive Analytics Software

I just noticed that yesterday SAP announced the general availability of SAP Predictive Analysis software based on R and HANA.   I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out why SAS or SPSS wasn’t all over HANA given the incredible potential for real “real-time” analytics.  Now I know why.


I don’t know how robust the offering from SAP is at this point, but it can only get better as more and more analytical application developers adapt their offerings to R.

It remains to be seen how effective the SAP sales forces will be at “selling” analytics, especially since R is open-source.  I expect it will be more of a draw the other way, where R developers are interested in HANA as the underlying datastore for their applications.
