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.
