Generate Sensor Data in SAP Data Intelligence, Trial Edition
- How to use a Data Generator to generate random sample data
- How to visualize the generated data via a Terminal
Please note in this tutorial GCP refers to Google Cloud platform and AWS refers to Amazon Web Services and Azure refers to Microsoft Azure.
- Step 1
Open the modeling environment for building pipelines via SAP Data Intelligence Modeler. To access the SAP Data Intelligence Launchpad in AWS or GCP or Azure you need go to the chapters 3.3 and 3.4 as described in the Getting Started with SAP Data Intelligence, Trial Edition guide. From SAP Data Intelligence Launchpad you could access the SAP Data Intelligence Modeler.
