You’ve heard about the Internet of Things (IoT), right? If you’re like me, it’s not so easy to wrap your head around the myriad use cases of connecting everything or why it’s even necessary.
This week at SAP TechEd && d-code in Las Vegas, I got schooled at the IoT Lab in the Hacker’s Lounge. And now I am a believer. Even more surprising is the secret sauce to make it run simple – SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
Demo 1: Water Pump
Similar to the Alliander demo showcased in the Day 2 keynote, this demo also proved the power of sensor technology and how it drives safety and maintenance efficiency across the enterprise. In essence, this water pump is constantly being monitored with various sensors. If one pump fails, a sensor kicks off an alert to rout the water flow to the back up pump. All pump activity data is being collected and pushed to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform where it’s easy to analyze data and identify patterns to avoid catastrophic situations and perform predictive maintenance.
