Overall Satisfaction with SAP Conversational AI

I am currently implementing it at an infrastructure company. I find the connection with SAP S/4HANA On-Premise systems is not very efficient yet. Moreover since I am implementing in Dutch, I found the entity recognition algorithm of Conversational AI shows some anomalies.
  • SAP Conversational AI is the chatbot platform for SAP product environment. It has very easy integration features with the whole SAP landscape.
  • There will soon be a lot of out-of-the-box skills available for different SAP products like SuccessFactors, etc.
  • SAP Conversational AI prototyping is free. Hence it is extremely easy to create a POC for a client.
  • Conversational AI supports internationalization very efficiently. The only problem is that there isn’t any direct tool in the Conversational AI platform which will translate intents from English to other locales.
  • With the latest release, Conversational AI bot connectors have matured a lot, hence the implementation effort for Conversational AI in an SAP landscape has been reduced drastically.
  • The Conversational AI bot building platform is very simple to use, and intuitive, hence it isn't an issue for a beginner to start working with it. For simple skills you also don’t need to code.
  • There is no option to export all intents. This makes translation of skills very effort consuming.
  • There are no data masking features in Conversational AI. Hence some clients feel uncomfortable when their data is being sent to the cloud. But Conversational AI is GDPR compliant.
  • It is tricky to implement a Conversational AI bot in a non-SAP environment. Though it is possible.
  • SAP Conversational AI increases ease of operations, which in turn uplifts employee morale.
  • It reduces training efforts for new joiners.
  • It increases performance and efficiency for mundane operations.
  • Acoustic Analytics (formerly IBM Watson Customer Experience Analytics)
SAP Conversational AI’s natural language processor was much more efficient.
I have been working very closely with the development team for SAP Conversational AI. They have assisted me on numerous occasions, to resolve issues with my project.
