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.

I had a chat recently with John Bates, the CEO of PLAT.ONE, a company recently aquired by SAP.
PLAT.ONE is a company which helps connect diverse devices to the Internet of Things, manage compute locations (edge computingcentral, or hybrid) and sensor data flows, so amongst other things, we discussed integration in our conversation - both of edge device data, and the integration of PLAT.ONE into SAP.

Bill Clee is the founder and CEO of UK company Asset Mapping, a company which does geoloaction and enterprise asset management for assets, be they indoors or out.
I reached out to him and asked him to come on the show, and he graciously accepted.

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 :)
In this show, I attended SAP's internal d-kom event in Karlsruhe where I caught up with Asset Intelligence Network Product Owner Pascal Rauprecht, and we had a chat about the Internet of Things, Enterprise Asset Management, and how SAP's Asset Intelligence Network can help organisations turn asset management from a cost centre into a profit centre.
Given Gary's unique experience in both the IoT Enterprise, and IoT startup worlds, I thought he'd make a great guest for the show, and I wasn't wrong!
Constellantion Research's industry analyst Andy Mulholland has a very strong technical background having been Group CTO for Cap Gemini before coming out to retirement to join Constellation to lead research into IoT.
We had a fascinating conversation around IoT, manufacturing, and the transition to the digital services economy.
