Enterprise Machine Learning in a Nutshell

via openSAP


Machine learning enables computers to learn from large amounts of data without being explicitly programmed to do so. We can already see how machine learning gives rise to new intelligent applications, from self-driving cars to intelligent assistants on our smartphones.

Increasingly, businesses recognize the importance of using machine learning to transform their data assets into business value. However, many companies are unsure how machine learning can be applied to solve problems in an enterprise context. As the world’s most relevant enterprise data is part of SAP’s system and business network, SAP aspires to make all its enterprise solutions intelligent and help customers to leverage their data.

The objective of this course is to help business decision makers understand the significance of machine learning for enterprise computing. After taking this course, participants should be aware of recent advances in machine learning, have an understanding of the basic concepts involved and how business problems can be solved with machine learning. In particular, the course gives guidelines on how to formulate a business problem as a machine learning problem. This course is mainly aimed at a business audience. In the meantime, we are working on another machine learning course for a developer audience, and expect this course to be available next year.
