Software giant SAP SE has launched Leonardo Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities and announced the extension of its association with Microsoft on IoT interoperability.
SAP unveiled the Leonardo Internet of Things (IoT), which is an all-encompassing technology that creates and drives digital transformation for Industry 4.0 or Industrial IoT (IIoT).
Besides, SAP announced the Leonardo IoT’s cloud-to-cloud interoperability with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. This will provide the customers a choice of connectivity and device management.
