SAP re-christens Leonardo as its "system of innovation"

SAP Bets Big On IoT Platform Expansion, Takes Aim At Digital Transformation Applications

Google and SAP plan to accelerate customers' digital business transformation through intelligent applications such as conversational apps that guide users through complex workflows and transactions and answer questions around their enterprise.

The Google news makes SAP a three-pronged cloud provider, offering customers cloud deployments through Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google.

"The Protera team is once again very excited to be exhibiting at the SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG, as this conference is the premier event to connect with SAP customers and the SAP ecosystem". "You don't have to wait till you have closed the books", he said.

SAP and Google have now certified the SAP NetWeaver technology platform on GCP, enabling organizations to run SAP S/4HANA and the SAP Business Warehouse application on GCP. This will be supported by a network of SAP Leonardo Centres with initial locations in New York, Paris, Sao Leopoldo, and Bangalore.

SAP Customer Retention uses machine learning to mine data that reveals subtle indicators of potential churn and helps companies predict when a customer is in danger of leaving them for a competitor. It provides customers the full power of SAP HANA in a private, managed cloud environment that is supported by the most knowledgeable resources in the industry - from infrastructure to applications.

Walldorf, Germany-based SAP is committing to a cloud strategy lately following claims from competitors that it was late to the party - a claim which Bernd Leukert, executive board member and head of products and innovation for SAP, admitted in an executive media briefing Tuesday afternoon.

He stressed the importance of being open - both in terms of how Leonardo and its connections are built, and in terms of the data the system can ingest and enter into consideration, citing the ability to bring in outside data ranging from traffic and weather information for logistics planning, to social media data for customer profiles.

SAP intends to make the partnership, announced earlier this year, available globally and partner with Google in machine learning, IoT, data transparency, custodian services and workplace productivity.

This digital innovation platform will offer customers either "an industry-focused approach called industry accelerators, aligned to specific use cases with fixed prices and timelines", or a flexible approach that allows customers to build whatever they want and need for their industry or business.

SAP Analytics Cloud was formerly known as SAP Business Objects Cloud.

Several other SAP partners interviewed by CRN at Sapphire said they are starting to see interest in IoT from their customers.

However, Co-Pilot is not Apple's Siri digital assistant in a business duds, asserts Darren Roos, president of SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

SAP also announced that it would collaborate with Deloitte Consulting to create a suite of next-generation digital offerings for finance, the supply chain, and software-as-a-service companies.

"This is the biggest move our company has made since HANA, and we all know how that worked out", McDermott said, referencing the company's in-memory database, which has become the underpinnings of everything it does and the fastest-growing product in the company's history.
