DataRobot and SAP Partner to Deliver Custom AI Solutions for the Enterprise

Today, SAP and DataRobot announced a joint partnership to enable customers connect core SAP software, containing mission-critical business data, with the advanced Machine Learning capabilities of DataRobot to make more intelligent business predictions with advanced analytics. Every modern enterprise has a unique set of business data collected as part of their sales, operations, and management processes. Leveraging DataRobot’s JDBC connectors, enterprise teams can work together to train ML models on their data residing in SAP HANA Cloud, as well as have an option to enrich it with data from external data sources. After a custom ML model is prepared, users can subsequently deploy these ML models to SAP AI core using automated model-deployment pipelines, and continue monitoring those models in production for accuracy and performance.

As a result, enterprises can now get powerful insights and predictive analytics from their business data by integrating DataRobot-trained machine learning models into their SAP-specific business processes and applications, while bringing data science and analytics teams and business users closer together for better outcomes.

More details about the joint capabilities were shared at the March 8th SAP Data Unleashed virtual event and furthermore will be shared at From Vision to Value, Creating Impact with AI, the March 16th DataRobot virtual event. Tune in to learn more. Registration is free for both events.

SAP AI Solutions: Making Business Applications More Intelligent

AI is at the heart of the SAP strategy to help customers become intelligent, sustainable enterprises. With SAP AI solutions such as SAP AI Core, AI Business Services and SAP HANA PAL, customers can bring predictive intelligence into their business processes through ready-to-use, pre-trained AI capabilities in SAP applications. 

Enterprises can extend AI capabilities to meet their specific needs, using SAP Business Technology Platform. They can also ensure trust and reliability by using AI capabilities that are built on a stringent ethics policy and data privacy standards that enable responsible use of AI with full transparency and compliance.

This partnership between the two brings together DataRobot’s multimodal machine learning capabilities with SAP’s extensive business data and processes to create business-centric ML solutions.

Build Custom ML Models Combining Multimodal SAP and non-SAP Business Data

Every business has a unique data landscape and business processes that it wants to extract maximum value out of without causing too much disruption to its existing tech stack. So in order to get maximum value from AI, it needs to build machine learning models that are unique to each of its business usecase.

Here, it becomes crucial for the company to leverage an AI solution that can integrate with their existing workflows to ensure frictionless adoption by all stakeholders involved. 

With DataRobot’s built-in capability to connect to SAP HANA, users can quickly build custom AI models, using either the DataRobot user interface or DataRobot Notebooks for code-first data scientists. SAP customers can also ingest multimodal external data from other non-SAP sources, export DataRobot models into SAP AI Core through model-deployment pipelines, and use their predictions in SAP business applications, as well as continuously monitor and retrain models.

This joint solution thus helps enterprises get even more value out of their existing SAP and non-SAP business data by applying machine learning with broad interoperability across existing machine learning libraries and frameworks, and end-to-end capabilities for Experimentation and Production.

Enterprises can accelerate collaborative experimentation with the flexibility to customize models across open-source frameworks and production environments through a superior user experience, a decade of DataRobot’s data science expertise, and support for diverse organizational use cases. Using DataRobot, companies can monitor their models in production for accuracy and data drift, in addition to retraining them proactively. 

With DataRobot and SAP,  joint customers can:
