SAP was evaluated for completeness of vision and ability to execute, and SAP’s product offering, SAP Leonardo, was assessed as part of the company’s evaluation.
“Being named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT solidifies SAP’s leadership in enabling customers to innovate with transformative digital technologies,” said Mala Anand, president, SAP Leonardo and Analytics, SAP. “The value of the IoT comes from what you learn by analyzing new data from smart devices and equipment, and combining it with existing data and systems. We are helping organizations connect Internet-enabled things to business processes for innovative outcomes.”
According to Gartner, “By 2020, on-premises Internet of Things (IoT) platforms coupled with edge computing will account for up to 60 percent of industrial IoT (IIoT) analytics, up from less than 10 percent today.”
The report further states, “CIOs in industrial enterprises must cautiously approach IoT platform due diligence. Adoption is growing but the installed base of complex IT/OT integration is small and focused on narrowly defined outcomes. Focus on integration, and data and device management to ensure platforms scale with needs.”
Highlights from the Gartner Report
While Leonardo IoT is an industry-agnostic IoT platform, it is best-suited to organizations with a significant SAP installed base that seeks an integrated solution spanning IT/OT integration, SAP's IoT applications, asset intelligence network and legacy industry applications. Leonardo IoT is appropriate for industrial asset monitoring and related analytics across manufacturing, utility, and transportation and logistics sectors. Observed and verifiable industrial use cases include asset monitoring and predictive maintenance of multiple manufacturing styles and in-field industrial assets, such as heavy industry and renewable energy generation.
SAP's experience in enterprise applications and middleware for manufacturing, and transportation and logistics markets provides a strong foundation of expertise for customers of SAP Leonardo IoT.
SAP's IoT-specific acquisitions, investments and partner ecosystem demonstrate SAP's commitment to the IIoT market and the long-term viability of IoT within SAP and the SAP Leonardo product set.
SAP Leonardo IoT offers proven capabilities to enrich and supplement OT functions with IoT for improved asset life cycle management strategies and processes.
