Business and IT leaders across industries are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to service and delight customers like no other competitor. With emerging smart assets that can be always-on, industries see a tremendous possibility to transform operational scenarios and re-imagine their business models.
The massive numbers of connected things and the explosion of data generated by connected devices (“Things”) will change the way we do business forever. The journey a company takes to get from “Things to Outcomes” is becoming the catalyst for digiti
zation. IoT is not necessarily new to most companies. However, most are collecting and storing the data and may also have the ability to visualize it.
With SAP Leonardo, SAP provides a highly innovative IoT portfolio which extends the digital core with adaptive applications, big data applications and connectivity to enable:
New business processes
New business models
New work environments
Connected Products - Enable end-to-end visibility to product-centric operations and ability to optimize compliance visibility and service availability
As the demand for information and insight increases, we are seeing a
significant increase in the design, manufacturing, and delivery of smart,
connected products across all industries. R&D can utilize data from sensors,
connected products, and other Big Data sources, to support the development
of more reliable and desirable products that meet target requirements.
This leads to increased demand and opportunities for you in the market,
and increased access to information for both you and your customers.
Goods and Equipment: Connect, monitor, and control a large number of customer facing products
Connect smart devices and products with core business processes and back-end systems. SAP Leonardo enables you to easily collect and analyze data from IoT devices from smart products e.g., coolers, coffee machines. At the same time, you can bring back-end business context and processes in real time by converging it with digital twins of physical product within IoT smart applications to improve efficiency, automatic replenishment – and create new product-as-a-service business models.
Product Insights: Design, manufacture, and distribute smart products to leveraging sensor data by manufacturers and consumers

And master product cost potential and transparency – at a time when it counts.
Supply Networks : Manage, control, and respond to changing conditions with a digital operations center for response
