SAP challenges entrepreneurs.
Every day more and more objects are being connected to the Internet. These include devices such as cars, watches (wearables), and even refrigerators. This phenomenon is referred to as the Internet of Things.
More and more companies are implementing smart systems that handle processes such as office management (Smart Office) or even controlling car fleets (Smart Car).
The accumulation of many sensors and detectors produces huge amounts of data. A growing number of companies are implementing these types of systems, but can they handle such large volumes of distributed data and use them to streamline their processes?
Digital Transformation is a process that involves more and more companies. Part of it is also the incorporation of the Internet of Things with businesses. That is why soon it will probably involve your organisation as well. It’s worth being prepared for it.
SAP has recognized this problem and came up with a specific solution—SAP Leonardo.
What is SAP Leonardo?
SAP Leonardo is a solution combining the Internet of Things with a range of features and applications that enable companies to cope with the accumulation of information from a variety of sources. And there are a lot of them if you take into account all the sensors and detectors connected to the Internet devices Things.
Such solutions streamline many processes at companies. For example, they are able to:
- control the operation of machines in real time—this enables efficient use of resources,
- notify when detecting unusual machine behaviour,
- generate predictive analyses of the expected life of a component or suggested repairs.
SAP Leonardo enables a smooth transition from traditional business models to Digital Transformation. Thus, it maximizes the level of satisfaction of customers who aren’t always prepared for the effects of a company’s transition into the digital age. SAP Leonardo allows you to manage and scale innovation. This is possible by using and combining a whole range of tools and technologies cemented by Design Thinking.
This allows for intelligent management of the organization. SAP Leonardo changes the decision-making process from intuition-based activities to those based on hard data.
SAP Leonardo is a digital innovation system. It allows you to create, develop and integrate new Internet-related applications and expand the portfolio of IoT products related to SAP products. The following technologies were used and combined in SAP Leonardo:
- Big Data
- Internet of Things
- Machine Learning
- Data Intelligence
The synergy of these technologies allows its users to achieve SAP Leonardo’s key benefit—practical use and management of stored data.
In the near future, this will be one of the factors determining competitive advantage. In the age of generating massive amounts of data, more specific information that facilitates quick actions or allows for efficient management of resources is becoming increasingly important.
In addition, the distinguishing factor of this solution is the ability to connect it with business data from systems such as ERP, CRM or SRM.
How can SAP Leonardo take your business to the next level?
Changing the approach to running a business can bring a number of benefits. These include not only reliable decisions but also cost reductions thanks to using the latest technology. SAP Leonardo supports the latest business models. Its use is also able to optimize processes related to areas such as logistics, resources, and maintenance.
