Expert Analytics runs only on desktop ?


Expert Analytics runs currently only on desktop . I understand we can export expert analytics model into HANA and run the process in HANA .

In the above case what will happen if I am using R algorithms . Will R algorithms also be executed on HANA or I would need a separate R server.

Is there any plans for SAP to have expert analytics also run on client/server in future. ?

Since expert analytics provides much more flexibility this would be a nice feature to have.

    Hi, Expert runs on desktop only. Our plans is to provide model creation capabilities (Automated + Expert) inside the Predictive Factory (browser-based experience relying on the Predictive Factory and Predictive Analytics Server). For R execution in SAP HANA you need to set up a R-server that is technically not in SAP HANA.

    I hope this helps, thanks & regards,

    • Thank you Antoine.

      Then will the Expert analytics model created on HANA tables and with delegation enabled be executed on SAP HANA.

      Apologize if I am asking the same question again . Just want to make sure I understand the limitations and capabilities well . Expert analytics models even though its enabled only on desktop version it can delegate the processes to SAP HANA .

    Hi, for Expert on HANA, you have three sub-cases: you use a PAL algorithm (expert library in SAP HANA), you use a APL algorithm (automated library in HANA) or you use a R algorithm. For APL/PAL this is delegated to HANA, and the respective libraries handle the processing. For R this is delegated to HANA and the R portions are redirected to the R server alongside with the data. Hopefully this clarifies further. Thanks & regards Antoine
