SAP Offers Unparalleled Machine Learning Technology to Growing Businesses

If you’ve been following SAPPHIRE NOW 2016 via livestream or on Twitter, you’ve probably heard the term “machine learning” thrown around a few times. SAP CEO Bill McDermott predicts that machine learning technology will be one of the top trends of the next decade, alongside augmented reality and improved artificial intelligence. All three of these concepts are straight out of science fiction, but are actually becoming possible in the real world as technology improves.

What is machine learning technology? Within the field of computer science, “machine learning” refers to a computer’s ability to learn and adapt without being programmed. The computer accomplishes this feat by recognizing patterns in data and successfully predicting outcomes based on previous experiences–similar to how human beings learn. As the owner of a small or mid-sized business (SMB), you might already have first-hand experience with machine learning technology. Many of SAP’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software systems utilize machine learning capabilities to provide business owners with real-time insights into their companies and customers.

Machine Learning Enables Outstanding Customer Service, Increased Business Efficiency

Powered by SAP HANA, the world’s fastest-selling ERP software SAP Business One can provide incredibly accurate predictive analytics at the speed of thought. It can accurately automate a variety of critical business processes from every area of an enterprise, including accounting and inventory management, with the analytical insights generated by the business intelligence software. When your ERP can not only automatically handle important tasks, but complete them correctly and efficiently, the software removes a tremendous amount of stress out of your daily business operations. You and your employees will have more time to spend on more satisfying tasks, improving productivity and employee retention and morale. Happier, more productive workers and more accurate operations can directly result in fast business growth and increased profitability. That’s only one of the ways machine learning technology can benefit growing SMBs.

At SAPPHIRE NOW, SAP and its partners encourage businesses of any size to focus on the customer. The leading business technology company has already helped growing enterprises refocus on the customer with cutting-edge customer relationship management (CRM) and integrated ERP software like SAP Business One. Bill McDermott believes machine learning technology will help these advanced business management software systems provide even greater aid to businesses looking to improve engagement with customers. McDermott also hopes that businesses will utilize today’s latest technology to develop empathy for their customers as a second, equally critical component of providing high-quality customer service.
