SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition

There’s a lot of hype around artificial intelligence (AI).

You’ve heard of AI, but you may not realize how often you use it: every day.

AI is behind the scenes when you unlock your phone with Face ID, search Google, talk to Siri, Alexa, and Google Home, get personalized content in your social media feeds, and see recommendations on Amazon and Netflix.

AI in Business

AI has come a long way since its beginning in the 1950s. After decades of research, development, setbacks, and breakthroughs, AI isn’t just part of our personal lives—it’s a powerful business tool.

Many industries use AI to automate processes, improve decision-making, and drive innovation.

But what is AI?

In a nutshell, AI is a set of advanced analysis and logic-based techniques that interpret events, support and automate decisions, and take action. It identifies patterns and solves problems very quickly with massive amounts of data.

When you begin using AI, you’ll need to correct its work and teach it how your business operates—much like hiring a new employee. But AI is a quick study, and the more examples you give it, the smarter it gets.

AI in ERP Solutions

Business leaders are considering AI’s power and potential when evaluating new technology to optimize processes, increase agility, and improve product and service quality—and their research inevitably leads to SAP.

As a technology pioneer, SAP has designed some of the most robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions available. SAP has been innovating in AI for years and has successfully woven AI into its products and processes.
