SAP stepped up its efforts to integrate Internet of things sensor data with its analytics tools and then connect them to the iOS apps created via a partnership with Apple and development tools
As part of its SAP Leonardo digital innovation efforts, SAP integrated IoT tools for logistics, manufacturing and assets into its broader ecosystem and cloud platform. About a year ago, SAP outlined its plans to invest in IoT. The company launched the following:
These IoT-based systems will connect to SAP's broader software for various industries as well as SA S/4HANA. SAP also said that SAP Asset Manager will support an iOS app. Other apps will combine SAP Leonardo IoT tools with iOS mobile apps for asset intelligence and predictive maintenance and service.
