SAP Enters Edge Computing Segment with Leonardo IoT Edge


As Internet of Things (IoT) becomes more prevalent, a swelling pool of data gets generated at the sensor and device level. This data can be leveraged to derive actionable business insights through analytics, which until now has been processed in the cloud. However, there is an increasing need for real-time collection, processing and analysis of this data at the device or gateway level i.e. closer to the edge, for real-time quick actions. This is Edge Computing & Analytics, which emulates the public cloud capabilities by bringing intelligence closer to the devices but with a smaller and agile footprint.

SAP has launched SAP Leonardo digital innovation system – which runs on the SAP Cloud Platform and supports Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Analytics and Blockchain.
