Vodafone and SAP have tied-up to explore Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in India where the companies would develop communication solutions for enterprises that will leverage both SAP Leonardo and Vodafone’s IoT Managed Connectivity Platform.
For this, the companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together and offer packages comprising connectivity solutions, business application software, end-to-end device management and support services.
“Enterprises of all sizes are seeking to embrace new-age technologies for higher efficiency,” said Neeraj Athalye, Head – Innovation & Digital Strategy Group, SAP Indian Subcontinent. “The offerings provided by Vodafone Business Services are complementary to the SAP Leonardo portfolio. With this we aim to equip our customers with end-to-end solutions that will shift business value from ‘things to outcomes’.”
“We are delighted to announce our association with SAP. As customers digitize, industrial IOT is at the center of their programs. Working in collaboration with SAP, we offer an end to end partnership across IOT and analytics which enables meaningful insight and focused outcomes,” said Nick Gliddon, Director – Vodafone, Enterprise Business.
The current collaboration between Vodafone and SAP is in addition to an existing global partnership for Global SIM Management in SAPHANA.
