SANTA CLARA, Calif. SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced it will be a platinum sponsor of the Cloud Foundry Summit, the premier event for enterprise app developers, taking place June 13-16 in Santa Clara, California.

Bjoern Goerke, CTO of SAP and president SAP Cloud Platform, will present the importance of an agile, robust and open business platform to develop innovative applications without compromising enterprise-grade qualities in his keynote, “Enterprise Is the New Black.”

SAP Cloud Platform leverages the openness of Cloud Foundry to provide customer choice of underlying infrastructure and programming models to shape the next-generation open enterprise platform. As announced recently, SAP Cloud Platform, based on Cloud Foundry, delivers a groundbreaking multicloud business platform offering smart business services as well as a unified digital marketplace experience via SAP App Center.

SAP Cloud Platform is also the foundation for SAP Leonardo, SAP’s digital innovation system that brings differentiating software capabilities in machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, analytics and blockchain together with SAP’s experience, deep process and industry knowledge, and advanced design thinking methodology.

“We are excited about what we have been able to accomplish at SAP with Cloud Foundry,” said Goerke. “It’s at the core of SAP Cloud Platform and the technical enabler of our multicloud platform as a service solution. As a cofounding member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, we are fully committed to further foster Cloud Foundry’s position as the de facto standard in enterprise platform as a service.”

Mitsubishi Electric will share its experience with the SAP Cloud Platform Internet of Things service at the summit.

“SAP Cloud Platform Internet of Things has enabled us to onboard and manage our SPS Robot Nc Motion from Mitsubishi Electric in a fast and efficient way,” said Thomas Lantermann, senior solution consultant FA EMEA, Factory Automation, European Business Group, Mitsubishi Electric. “In particular, the immediate visualization of the sensor data without any coding, the secure communication from device to the cloud, and also the tight and smooth integration of relevant data into any back-end application via SAP Cloud Platform were impressive.”

SAP also intends to be a platinum sponsor of the Cloud Foundry Summit taking place in Basel, Switzerland, on October 11-12, 2017.
