Title AI Tools in the SAP Environment

In the age of artificial intelligence (AI), SAP offers various solutions, such as SAP Joule, to help companies utilize their data more effectively. However, third-party providers have also developed innovative AI tools that can be integrated into SAP products. These tools include R scripts, TensorFlow, and large language models (LLMs), which can be connected to a data warehouse based on BW/4HANA, DWC, or HANA.
The goal of this bachelor thesis is to create a comprehensive market overview of these AI tools. A taxonomy of available solutions should be developed, and use cases should group these solutions.
