I have been exchanging ideas with Sam Ko about how to predict using Lumira. Then someone asked this morning how this Visual Intelligence 1.0.4 tutorial works in SP12:
At first, because the navigation has changed, I couldn't easily find it. Looking at the help, the functionality was still there.
In the above, I already have a time hierarchy and filtered for United States only. Perhaps I want to use past data to predict expected order quantity in the future.
In the measures I drag over order quantity,and then drag over the order date / month as the attribute for the axis.
Then select the dropdown by measure and select Predictive calculation > Forecast
I select 12 periods to forecast in the future.
In the above you can see forecast order quantity is the green bars and it is predicting into 2014.
But a bar chart doesn't easily help you detect trends.
I switch to a line chart and also add linear regression in orange.
For more details on how this works, please see SAP Lumira (formerly SAP Visual Intelligence): ... | SCN
So now, maybe I might dive in and predict/forecast some NFL games with Lumira, along with Sam Ko - I could've used it today for some of the games.
