SAP has added machine learning to its Leonardo IoT software suite to help businesses handle data gathered from smart devices more intelligently.
It unveiled the additions to Leonardo — and a cloud of other news — at its customer conference, Sapphire Now, in Orlando on Tuesday.
Leonardo runs on SAP Cloud Platform and provides a number of services to process data from the internet of things, including streaming and predictive analytics. Now, those predictive capabilities will include machine-learning tools tuned to work with the rest of the Leonardo components.
“It’s about adding intelligence to existing business processes and integrating with the core systems of record. Leonardo’s capabilities can be infused into SAP applications,” said Mike Flannagan, SAP’s senior vice president for analytics. “We see Leonardo as something that will help customers transform processes.”
