Connect Your Assets to SAP HANA — Anywhere, Over Any Network

How to Enable Real-Time Analytics and Business Optimization with IoT and M2M Application Enablement Platforms

by Fred Yentz | Issue 3

July 1, 2014

A challenge in leveraging SAP HANA to its full potential is getting the right data from the right assets at the right time to and from SAP solutions. With the capabilities of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the increase of machine-to-machine (M2M) data, organizations must manage their uptick in data as cost-effectively as possible. This article explores application enablement platforms, which facilitate the collection and processing of data from any device, anywhere.

 

Managing business in a more connected world requires the ability to adjust in real time to limitless decisions based on millions of live signals from devices and machines. SAP HANA provides data analytics to extract more value from critical capital assets, uncover innovative consumer insights, and establish preventive and efficient business practices. 

The deviceWISE application enablement platform facilitates the collection and processing of data from any device, anywhere, and provides seamless connectivity and integration of data into SAP applications.

The main hurdle in leveraging SAP HANA to its full potential is getting the right data from the right assets at the right time to and from SAP solutions. Most organizations operate a large number of disparate assets — from production equipment to vehicle fleets — that are made by different suppliers, use different technical protocols, are connected via different channels, and are located all over the world.

Keeping Ahead in a World of Cloud Solution

Enter the world of cloud platforms and services for the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) application enablement platforms (AEPs). An AEP facilitates the collection and processing of data from any device, anywhere, and provides seamless data connectivity and integration — both directly to the enterprise and to the cloud. 

The deviceWISE AEP from ILS Technology is fully integrated with SAP HANA and SAP solutions, allowing companies to collect and analyze massive amounts of data from all their assets to make better decisions, share pertinent information on demand, and improve service in real time (see Figure 1). deviceWISE reduces the risk, cost, time, and complexity of developing IoT and M2M applications with SAP HANA, enabling innovative consumer insights, improved operational efficiencies, cost reductions, predictive maintenance, and new revenue models.

Take Control of Your Assets

Whether monitoring and controlling remote assets, tracking assets and field service personnel, or operating data-intensive industrial factories around the globe, companies rely on the deviceWISE platform for its mission-critical connectivity, security, scalability, and simple click-to-configure integration with SAP systems.

For example, in the industrial and retail markets, the deviceWISE AEP can be used to reshape cold storage management by monitoring and controlling commercial refrigeration equipment with real-time analytics, using cloud-based applications running on SAP HANA. Food and beverage companies can use the software to help control the quality, temperature, and freshness of their inventory at any stage, from production to retail. They can also monitor real-time demand and improve production scheduling and logistics.
