German companies T-Systems and SAP announced this week a partnership to enable their customers to easily integrate Internet Data of Things (IoT) into their SAP systems. As T-Systems points out in a statement, the agreement provides for the connection of its cloud-based platforms to integrated sensors and networked equipment.
"We are making this process very simple for our customers: connecting sensors and activating them, so that Internet of Things can be easily used for process automation," said T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh that the solution is already available.
The integration was done initially for the logistics sector, and the telematics module recognizes the speed of the vehicle as well as its position via GPS, as well as providing information on shocks and temperature. According to companies, other devices are also on the way, such as a button for orders or a module that will collect data on machines. The forecast is that in the future there will be a digital label for use in logistics.
In practice, components like these collect data and transmit them, encrypted, to the T-Systems IoT platform. With the integration of platforms, this data will now automatically be transferred to SAP Leonardo IoT, an Internet Solution from SAP Stuff. This will enable customers to improve their processes with the use of SAP systems, such as SAP S / 4HANA.
