At SAP's internal event d-kom in Karlsruhe recently I met up with Markus Richter who leads SAP's research and innovation into sports to discuss how IoT is changing sports.

We had a great conversation around the increasing digitisation of sports, how SAP is working with national teams to help them improve their performance, and how data will be the great new battlefront in securing the rights of games

I had a great chat recently with Rudi Held. Rudi is the Global Head of SAP's worldwide network of co-innovation labs. These are labs where startups, research institutes, partners and customers can come to co-innovate a product with SAP.

I brought him on the show to talk about the co-innovation labs, what was the thinking behind setting them up, who uses the labs, and what are some of the more interesting outcomes of the co-innovation projects.

SAP made a major announcement recently. It announced its new SAP Leonardo brand for its Internet of Things portfolio of software products. At the same time SAP also announced its new SAP Leonardo Jump-Start program - a program of software and services at a fixed price to help companies starting out on IoT projects, and SAP also announced a new SAP Leonardo event. to be held in July.

 

I blogged about the announcement but I also felt it would be great to have SAP EVP for the Internet of Things and Digital Assets, Dr Tanja Reuckert explain the announcement, the thinking behind it, and how it will benefit customers. She very graciously agreed to come on the show. Enjoy :)
