SAP launches HANA Cloud Platform for IoT; teams up with Intel, Siemens
SAP is taking the complementary SAP HANA platform in conjunction with the Intel blueprint to simplify IoT end-to-end deployments for enterprises.
With the penetration of connected devices set to increase, SAP has launched HANA Cloud Platform for Internet of Things (IoT). The company also collaborated with Siemens and Intel to "make it easier for customers to adopt and manage IoT solutions."
SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the IoT provides the infrastructure to enable businesses to tap into a network of millions of connected devices. Building on its existing data and application services, which include predictive analytics, telematics, geo-location and more, the newly launched IoT services from SAP plan to enable the device cloud for faster delivery of IoT business value: device management, IoT messaging and IoT application enablement including data modeling.
"IoT services from SAP plan to support the cost-efficient and quick development, deployment and operation of SAP solutions for IoT," the company said.
Private cloud deployments intend to enable SAP customers to run their own device cloud or to operate a device cloud for their customers. To make it easy for customers to deploy IoT applications at the edge, SAP will include for a limited time free and unlimited access to the SAP SQL Anywhere suite —embeddable databases for remote devices for use with the new SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the IoT.
SAP offers a portfolio of IoT applications such as the SAP Connected Assets solution, including the cloud edition of the SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service solution, and SAP Connected Logistics software, among others that leverage SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the IoT.
Siemens has chosen SAP HANA Cloud Platform to build the Siemens Cloud for Industry powered by SAP HANA Cloud Platform as an open cloud platform for analyzing large datasets in the industry. It is intended to simplify industrial customers' ability to create additional value from the Internet of Things to help boost their own production as well as product and service offerings. Siemens plans to create an open IT ecosystem for OEMs and application developers based on SAP HANA Cloud platform.
In addition, SAP is taking the complementary SAP HANA platform in conjunction with the Intel blueprint to simplify IoT end-to-end deployments for enterprises. The first step in the collaboration is a joint proof of concept (POC) to integrate the Intel IoT Gateway with the SAP cloud.
The report also said that although a general war between India and Pakistan is unlikely, crises between the two are likely to become more intense, risking an escalatory cycle
