SAP and Vodafone combine to help customers get most of their IoT data

SAP SE announced the Internet of Things (IoT) foundation bundle for SAP HANA®, which features device connectivity management capability from Vodafone.

It is designed to help customers gain quicker returns on their IoT investments. The announcement was made at CeBIT 2016 held in Hannover, Germany (March 14–18).

SAP and Vodafone have signed an agreement to collaborate on customer projects in all markets that they jointly serve. This collaboration aims to allow enterprises to connect and manage devices using Vodafone’s IoT connectivity platform and to collect and move data from the devices into the SAP HANA platform to support predictive maintenance as well as other use cases. The technical certification of the integration between Vodafone and SAP HANA is supported by the new IoT foundation from SAP.

By combining device connectivity management capabilities from Vodafone with IoT applications, the IoT foundation for SAP HANA can help simplify the process of acquiring and managing regional and/or global wireless services that interoperate with SAP® solutions for the IoT.
