Each of these areas has seen explosive growth, but there are clear upsides and downsides to each. For example, Data Discovery excels in ease of use, but allows only limited depth of exploration, while Data Science provides powerful analysis but is slow, complex, and difficult to implement.
The SAP Lumira data discovery product runs on top of the platform to provide self-service data manipulation and visualization, and integrates tightly with the latest SAP Predictive Analytics 2.0 product. The latter combines a traditional advanced analytics workbench with the famously easy-to-use automated data preparation and mining of the SAP Infinite Insight product.
In addition, SAP is taking things to the next level. After carrying out co-innovation projects with customers, the company has created new packaged business applications such as SAP Predictive Maintenance. The application uses combines sensor data access, embedded data science algorithms, and traditional business measures to create new best-practice business processes.
What do you think? Will Big Data Discovery take over from existing approaches, or add to them? (and will it just become "Data Discovery" over time?)
