SAP has introduced a jump-start programme as part of its SAP Leonardo Labs global enablement network to help organisations identify and validate IoT pilots and use cases.

As a consultative service, the jump-start programme is a multiphase engagement featuring design thinking to match IoT innovations with customer strategies and objectives in achievable pilots with a clear path to business value. The programme is intended to ease the first steps of the IoT journey, producing pilots that define business cases for IoT strategies and further deployment, according to SAP.

SAP Leonardo IoT portfolio combines adaptive applications, Big Data applications and connectivity in packaged systems across line-of-business and industry use cases ranging from connected products, assets and infrastructure to vehicle fleets, markets and people.

With SAP HANA as its platform, SAP Leonardo offers intelligent IoT applications, business services for development, technical services for processing high-velocity data and an intelligent edge to process information at the device level.
