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.

Learn more about the labs here, and you can check out Rudi on LinkedIn

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.
