SAP’s Historical AI Curve

 

When SAP Joule meets SAP CX

SAP has long been a pioneer in the realm of business technology. Let’s take a step back and appreciate the journey SAP has undertaken to get here. The company has been integrating AI into its portfolio for decades, each era marked by a distinct approach to business intelligence:

  • R/1 to R/3 until the 1990s- The focus was on deterministic programming and rule engines.
  • Business Suite in the 2000s- This era saw the introduction of predictive analytics and forecasting.
  • HANA in the 2010s- The in-memory capabilities of HANA enabled specific analytics and intelligent use cases over large datasets.
  • Intelligent Enterprise in the 2020s- This is where things get really interesting. SAP has invested in foundational models, LLM (Low-Level Models), and Large Process Models (LPM). They’ve also directly invested in AI companies like Aleph Alpha, Anthropic, and Cohere.

In the mid-to-long term, SAP is now focusing on exploring unique capabilities to leverage these assets and address the limitations of LLMs. So, when we talk about SAP Joule AI, we’re talking about the culmination of decades of innovation and investment in AI.

The Birth of SAP Joule

While that’s how the curve went for the SAP’s AI revolution, the origin story for the Joule AI has yet another facet we should explore. Initially, SAP aimed to build a conversational tool native for SuccessFactors in 2018. However, the vision expanded, and the focus shifted to creating a tool to support the entire SAP business suite. 

Fast forward to September 2023, and Joule was born!
