GlobalSoft’s foray into IoT :
A few years back we were engaged by a medical devices client to create a connector product to integrate IoT platform of Axeda with SAP. Our experienced solution architects have always been passionate about building solutions and the challenge to be pioneers in connecting devices to the enterprise world reinvigorated us. While our techies have always been fascinated with new platforms and tools, this assignment called upon us to go back to our drawing boards and get entrenched in machine language. Very soon, our technical team who are rather quiet in their own space were compelled to talk to each other to leverage skills across technologies such as the world of embedded software, communication packets, connection aggregation, message queuing, stream processing and transformation before getting into the SAP enterprise world. The learning curve while we created the Axeda-SAP connector product was a defining period and became the foundation of our SAP IoT solutions competency. We have ever since been involved in architecting & developing various IoT specific scenarios for medical devices, equipment and retail industries. Some of them are:
Maximize the power of IoT with SAP HANA Platform
IoT enables automation in a plethora of application areas and this will generate large amounts of data, thereby increasing the need to process petabytes of data in a short period of time. Gartner estimates nearly 20.8 billion devices on IoT by 2020.
The launch of SAP’s HANA Platform enabled our solution architects to understand how the world of “Connected Devices” can truly be better leveraged to offer business value to organizations running SAP HANA. The speed & power of in-memory computing that SAP HANA offers is an imperative for organizations that have their brands being represented by millions of devices or machines running in a 24 X 7 mode in shop floors. IoT applications running on SAP HANA or HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) are able to identify patterns on petabytes of data and predict & trigger business events in a timely manner for business operations to be run in a non-eventful manner. GlobalSoft’s experience in working with the clients using SAP in the Medical Device, Equipment and Retail industry vertical and our knowledge and experience of IoT, HANA, Predictive Analytics, API Management, HCP, Fiori and S/4 will enable in delivering a “Connected Solution” that will be part of Industry 4.0.
By co-innovating with customers in the medical industry, GlobalSoft offers preconfigured and packaged solutions in terms of purposeful integration between SAP Enterprise CRM/C4C and HANA Cloud Platform. With a highly scalable framework to seamlessly accommodate multiple SAP Enterprise CRM/C4C instances, Globalsoft IoT caters to industry specific business scenarios like Machine remote diagnostics, Field Service tracking and optimization, Replenishment order automation, etc.
