SAP Unveils Live Business and Expands Google Partnership

SAP Bets Big On IoT Platform Expansion, Takes Aim At Digital Transformation Applications

SAP CoPilot will use machine learning to allow people to interact with SAP applications in a conversational manner - and will also connect to systems from other vendors, including Slack and Google's G Suite, providing a new way to access data.

SAP has struck "long-term" deals to run its platform-as-a-service on top of public cloud infrastructure owned by AWS, Azure and Google in addition to its own data centres.

The release "is the biggest move our company has made since HANA", McDermott said. This will be supported by a network of SAP Leonardo Centres with initial locations in New York, Paris, Sao Leopoldo, and Bangalore. SAP and Google hope that this will make SAP Cloud Platform on GCP available globally, and encourage "future collaboration and integrations in machine learning, IoT, data transparency and custodian services, and workplace productivity".

BackOffice Associates' Digital Transformation Practice helps organizations grow around their digital core by optimizing cloud, mobile and big data technologies across the entire value chain.

During the press conference Bernd Leukert, the member of SAP's executive board who oversees products and innovations, acknowledged that "there are a ton of [IoT] platforms on the market".

He stressed the importance of being open - both in terms of how Leonardo and its connections are built, and in terms of the data the system can ingest and enter into consideration, citing the ability to bring in outside data ranging from traffic and weather information for logistics planning, to social media data for customer profiles.

Also announced at the conference and tying in nicely with the multicloud play by SAP, is the expansion of its partnership with Google. SAP's SuccessFactors, which provides human resources tools and analytics, will be offered as seven different packaged solutions.

Deloitte will work with SAP to develop use cases for Leonardo and create microservices extensions to the platform, especially in such industries as finance and manufacturing.

SAP® Software Integration Readiness Assessment - Through a series of workshops, the collective BackOffice Associates and SAP team will evaluate and quantify a business' readiness for SAP software integration and use this as a starting point for the integration roadmap.

"At Sapphire we will be showing examples of SAP and Google collaborating on IoT and with customers and partners in various industry scenarios", said Yen.

However, Co-Pilot is not Apple's Siri digital assistant in a business duds, asserts Darren Roos, president of SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Version 2.0 offers a new interface, which SAP officials said will give leaders a "better understanding of their current digital maturity as a foundation to build a company-specific, digital-transformation roadmap".

Another announcement from Microsoft includes its SAP HANA on Azure Large Instance SKUs, powered by Intel Xeon processor E7-8890 v4 from 4TB to 20TB memory. Customers can also leverage Protera's certified SAP HANA accelerated migration platform FlexBridge - moving customers to the cloud faster and easier by reducing risk, downtime and cost.

Virtustream, an SAP partner, is participating at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 16-18 in Orlando, Florida in booth #438.
