SAP brought together its IoT capabilities under the Leonardo brand, committing $2 billion of investment over five years. Leonardo IoT is designed for industrial asset monitoring and related analytics across manufacturing, utility, and transportation and logistics sectors. The platform is multi-cloud and can run on AWS, Google and Microsoft cloud services.
The solution is available as a standalone but it offers more benefit with SAP's existing middleware and enterprise applications. The company has moved from selling IIoT as a platform to selling end-to-end solutions around enterprise apps. SAP ranks No. 2 for execution and No. 3 for vision on the quadrant.
