SAP SE has been named a leader in “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Industrial IoT Platforms in Manufacturing 2019 Vendor Assessment.”

The report recognizes SAP SE’s strengths. These strengths include the commitment to continue embedding the IoT into solutions. These solutions include SAP S/4HANA, SAP C/4HANA and SAP Digital Supply Chain. These solutions can assist to innovate intelligent technologies for SAP SE customers. The report also notes that SAP SE’s focus is on enabling business networks, which is complementary to its IoT strategy.

To further the progress of this focus, the company created SAP Leonardo IoT. It is an industrial IoT solution that is designed to assist customers to make better-informed, real-time decisions in order to achieve superior business outcomes and to create new business models using IoT sensor data. The company’s solutions’ ability to associate business systems semantics integrated with SAP Leonardo IoT creates a superior customer experience. This supports new business models and revenue streams as well as bringing an overall situational awareness to unprecedented levels powered by IoT-enabled business processes.

“With the unprecedented growth in enterprise data and the rise of intelligent technologies such as the IoT, customers have new opportunities for business innovation,” said Elvira Wallis, SVP and global head, SAP Leonardo IoT. “SAP’s digital platform and intelligent technologies enable faster time to value by directly integrating SAP business applications with real-time IoT data and opening a broad range of new opportunities for the Intelligent Enterprise. At SAP, we believe best-run businesses are data- and process-driven, and we’re committed to help deliver on this promise.”

With assistance from the SAP Leonardo IoT, customers can embed the IoT directly into line-of-business applications, extend existing business processes with IoT capabilities or create new IoT-based applications. They can accomplish this while keeping their core business processes stable. This allows customers to align innovation with their unique business needs.

“SAP has demonstrated a strong commitment to the IoT space,” said Stacy Crook, research director, IoT Ecosystem and Trends Research Practice, IDC. “We believe the company will continue to dedicate focus to this area to enable their broader ‘Intelligent Enterprise’ vision across manufacturing. The recent acquisition of Qualtrics also will allow customers to leverage IoT data in the context of customer experience management.”
