If you are a basic license user, semantria does well and presents analysis quickly. After the analysis, it creates multiple tabs with different views of the data and some visualizations and graph analysis also. The graph analysis and node connector graph is very useful. Their algorithm is very strong and it gives correct sentiment score even for neutral statements. I didnt get to use the API version of semantria so have no comments about that. Upon reading online about it, i found that the integration takes a while .

It's a great tool to merge actual data analysis (which Lumira doesn't do that well) with visualization (which Lumira does well) - so it can be seen as Lumira for data analysts. However, a lot of the 'predictive' side is hidden/black box which can be frustrating for those analysts, so you could argue it is too complex for casual users, but too 'black box' for analysts.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It doesn't require you to have a Ph.D. to build models!
  • You can use it to address a very large and wide dataset without worrying about sampling.
  • Automation is in the product DNA. You can prepare your data, ingest it into the "Kernel", then get insights about what was found, decide to publish it and schedule scoring tasks or model refresh in the same product.

Cons

Lexalytics

  • extra pricing option for more languages
  • limited transactions for basic license
  • tends to crash with large data sets on Excel.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It's extremely hard to get started. We even have a data scientist who, when we put Predictive Analytics in front of them, they could not intuitively create a data model and start analyzing. Even with deep knowledge of data analysis, the interface isn't intuitive and it's hard to get to the point of having imported a data set and start analyzing/predicting
  • Our platform team had confusion installing Predictive Analytics, particularly on the BI Platform. Additional complexity came when it came to using APL Libraries (AFL Wrapper or Stored Procedures)
  • We are still working on merging datasets. In theory, we get how to do it but we come across all sorts of issues which don't occur in Spotfire (missing records etc.)

Based on 1 answer
The documentation provides an explanation about what features are available but not necessarily what's happening behind the scenes. On the other side, the "community" has grown since the acquisition and most questions are properly addressed by SAP folks. Since the "product maintenance" mode announcement was made, there wasn't much new content published except on the Smart Predict side (which is built by the SAP Predictive Analytics team)

Alternatives Considered

Semantria holds its ground pretty well. Their Excel plugin works flawlessly. Apart from semantria, i have used Vivekn sentiment analysis which is just a basic text input -web based sentiment tool, giving you sentiment score and sentiment category. Semantria gives an array of analysis for its excel version. The only good thing about Vivekn is its web based so can be used from a mobile device.

SAP Predictive Analytics

We have typically used Spotfire for data analysis but decided to move to SAP Business Objects due to its innate connection with SAP. I found Lumira to be good for visualizations but it is not meant for data analysis. Therefore, we have introduced Predictive Analytics to see if it can fill that gap. So far, it's been far less intuitive than Spotfire to get started, and as far as I am aware so far, it does not bring many additional capabilities. I do, however, like that it utilizes the Lumira look/feel and integrates very well.

Return on Investment

Lexalytics

No answers on this topic

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It will potentially save time in forecast creation by giving an algorithm-derived forecast which can then be adjusted vs. starting from scratch. We can call this, a system enabled forecast
  • Thresholds can be created based on historical data to flag actuals as in/out of the 'norm', or to limit the scope of an investigation
  • We spent a lot of time so far and haven't got very far with it - it's been quite frustrating to use and a lot of time/money has been invested
