To scale this, SAP is co-innovating with start-ups and customers and growing its ecosystem of developers and partners.
“SAP solutions for the Internet of Things meet a number of organizational and consumer needs. With our enterprise-class expertise across multiple industries, we are helping customers become early adopters of IoT by bringing together the new world of connected things, sensors and machine data with existing business processes and applications,” said Dilipkumar Khandelwal, Managing Director, SAP Labs India & Executive Vice President, Suite Engineering, SAP SE.
