SAP SE has unveiled new offerings for customers and partners on the comprehensive SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Announced recently at the IoT World conference in Santa Clara, CA, the company said the new offerings are intended to help customers gain better insights into their interconnected devices and the data that those devices capture. A growing number of organizations are invested in the IoT, but realizing business value from the IoT remains elusive for many.

According to the SAP announcement, the IoT represents one of the greatest opportunities for organizations now, but it also places greater demands on the enterprise. In response, the new SAP HANA offerings are intended to extend the platform capabilities to meet the needs of new IoT-related applications.

The new offerings should be especially helpful to customers in the areas of edge computing, connectivity management, device management, mobile enablement, dashboarding, analytics and predictive computing, SAP explained. Solutions like the Siemens MindSphere are already productive and operating on SAP HANA Cloud Platform. SAP is supporting OpenStack as the cloud infrastructure and Cloud Foundry as the open source framework for SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

The new IoT offerings from SAP include: The IoT foundation bundle for SAP HANA provides a set of critical capabilities for IoT data management. Most significantly, smart data streaming enables organizations to conduct data filtering, aggregation and correlation at scale.

A dynamic tiering tool helps customers to manage multitier database storage according to the value of the data, thereby lowering costs in big data projects. SAP HANA Vora provides big data analysis with an in-memory computing engine for Hadoop.

The IoT intelligent edge processing bundle for SAP HANA consists of a “streaming lite” component, the edge database and sync client, and SAP Plant Connectivity software.
