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 Rueckert 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.
In this week's podcast I speak to Connected Cars expert Heino Kantimm. We had a wide-ranging discussion on how the Internet of Things, and autonomous vehicles is completely disrupting the transportation industry, and associated industries such as parking and insurance.
The Internet of Things, and more particularly the Industrial Internet of Things are complex spaces. Many pieces have to be connected to ensure a working system.
One tool which can help navigate the complexity is the SAP Enterprise Architect Explorer.
In this week's IoT Heroes show I interview Enterprise Architecture Explorer lead Juergen Jakowski and we talked about the genesis of the product, its purpose, and his vision for its future.

For the latest IoT Heroes show I recorded an interview with the CTO of smart city IoT company Fybr Tech (http://www.fybr-tech.com), Mrinal Wadhwa (aka @mrinal). We had a very interesting, wide-ranging discussion about everything from IoT, to smart cities, and even sewage!
At the recent IIC and Platform Industry 4.0 event I had the chance to have a fascinating discussion with Dr Richard Soley about the Industrial Internet Consortium, and the trends in the industrial Internet of Things.
