Hans, Many thanks - this is a very interesting overview of Leonardo. We've just started an Industrial IoT research project in which we interview the main 'platform' providers and several 'niche' providers to form a common view of the landscape and terminology. We will be publishing this in eight weeks (end of March) after which we will research 'TAM' (Total Available Market) and segmentation by supplier, country and industry for our 'IIoT Observatory'. I would very much like to talk with you for an hour so that we can include Leonardo in our study. Please could you email me on: If you would like me to speak to SAP Analyst Relations first, please let me know who to contact. Best regards, Alan, Industry Analyst, Cambashi, Cambridge
