SAP’s goal is to enable the Internet of Things for our customers to help run their businesses better. To accomplish this task, we are working to make it even simpler to connect the new generation of Internet-enabled devices in the cloud. We are delivering new products that support our customers as they transform their existing business processes by harnessing the machine data generated by their connected devices.
And we’re delivering the platform technology needed to reimagine customer experiences from the ground up. SAP solutions for the Internet of Things, running on the SAP HANA platform, have the ability to integrate with core on-premise SAP and non-SAP back-end systems.
SAP’s open approach to working with IoT partners makes it easier for our customers to find their path toward the ideal IoT solution. SAP also intends to work with other software vendors to integrate their specialized capabilities in IoT technology with our offerings. SAP is open to embracing community-driven software, such as the Hadoop with Hortonworks and Spark ecosystems.
