Incident Solution Matching
To find solutions to your issue:
The more you use the service, the more relevant the recommendations become.
Incident Solution Matching is a new service from SAP based on artificial intelligence (AI) technology which helps SAP customers get answers to technical questions faster.
The service proposes solutions ranked in order of relevance within the incident creation form, so you can find relevant SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles (KBAs) quickly without searching manually. Incident Solution Matching uses AI and machine learning for improved results by learning from past incidents. The more you use the service, the more relevant the recommendations become.
Incident Solution Matching is embedded in the incident creation form accessible via the SAP ONE Support Launchpad.
Including the following information in your problem description will significantly improve your search results.
Incident Solution Matching is the result of a highly sophisticated technology. On the first view, you will still use the same search environment or incident creation form. However, performance and quality of answers are improved considerably by this new technology and you should get answers much faster with a much higher relevance to your questions.
Incident Solution Matching is available for all SAP products.
Because the Incident Solution Matching automatically identifies and ranks solutions according to their semantic relevance based on incident data. The more detailed and concise information you provide, the more matching results you will get.

More use cases based on artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are planned for the future and will help further improve performance and customer experience.
