Enrich your edge data with business context – using SAP Dynamic Edge Processing
Improve the efficiency of your edge assets and workers – with SAP Dynamic Edge Processing. Collect and process IoT sensor data at the edge, instead of in a data center – while providing uninterrupted access to SAP functionality at lightning speed. Combine edge data with business context, simplify common IoT data processing patterns, and accelerate local workflows.
Because only about 15% of edge data needs to be analyzed in data centers, and the rest can be processed at the edge. SAP Dynamic Edge Processing simplifies and accelerates edge computing – so you can analyze and take intelligent business action immediately, where it’s needed most.
With SAP Dynamic Edge Processing you can:
Simplify processing patterns from multiple types of IoT sensors
Extend your digital core and workflow actions to the edge of your network
Securely transmit data from edge sensors to your core digital systems
SAP Dynamic Edge Processing evolved from industry leading intelligent edge architectural implementations at Fortune 500 companies where edge data is processed in real-time
Reference data & metadata from the digital core is stored locally at the edge, outside of the data center
IoT data event processing rules are configured at the edge and enriched with situational data
Relevant processed insights can be sent to the cloud e.g. employee activity combinations that result in plant maintenance work order creation
Applications can be hosted locally at the edge using edge data for sub-second system-response time
Edge data can be sent to the cloud periodically or on-demand for consolidated analysis to maximize computing resources
Extends SAP Plant Maintenance (PM), Materials Management (MM), Inventory Management (IM) functionality to the edge
Provides an architectural foundation and repeatable methodology to also extend other SAP functional areas to the edge (e.g.Employee Health & Safety (EH&S), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Human Resource (HR), Quality Management (QM), Supplier Relationship Management (SRM))
This retail demo and reference architecture provides an example of how you can use SAP Dynamic Edge Processing to extend your business operations to the edge. Digitize your inventory to transform store operations, leverage real-time product tracking, and avoid stock-outs.
