SAP Expands SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation

BARCELONA SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced an expansion of its SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation based on SAP Cloud Platform with three major capabilities: ready-to-use services, retrainable services and bring-your-own model. The announcement was made at SAP TechEd Barcelona, taking place Nov. 14-16.

Customers, partners and developers can now rely on additional ready-to-use services, such as optical character recognition (OCR) and multidimensional time series forecasting, to predict the optimal price for a product, for example.

Additionally, SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation now allows customers and partners to tailor generic models with company-specific data. The new image classification service can be retrained to recognize customer-specific objects such as products, components or spare parts.

Using predefined services or retrained models requires only minimal machine learning experience.

“SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation puts digital intelligence into the hands of all customers, partners and developers – whether they are just getting started or already have dedicated data science teams. We aim to deliver offerings that are the easiest to use and have the most impact on companies,” said Markus Noga, head of machine learning, SAP.

Customers and partners with their own data science teams can now deploy and run their custom models based on TensorFlow models from Google LLC on SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation. These advanced users can benefit from seamless interoperability with SAP Cloud Platform to take advantage of the platform’s scalability, reliability and security.
