SAP Edge Services

Run LIVE Business at the Edge

Optimise business processes at the edge, near the source of IoT data, to increase asset uptimes, operational efficiency and worker productivity – with SAP Edge Services. Enrich IoT sensor data with business context to enable real-time actions and outcomes. Initiate mission critical workflows from the edge, anytime or anywhere, with uninterrupted access to your enterprise systems.

Why SAP Edge Services? 

From off-shore oil rigs to retail outlets, military tanks and manufacturing equipment, SAP Edge Services lets you run live business at the edge, where IoT data originates. 

Whether you run your business in the cloud or on-premise, IoT Edge allows the creation of business process data in off-line mode while ensuring transactional integrity and back-end synchronisation with enterprise systems, even with intermittent connectivity.

With SAP Edge Services you can: 

  • Enrich raw sensor data with enterprise business context to facilitate decision-making and trigger immediate business action
  • Accelerate data processing speed, response time and performance at the edge to enable ultra-low latency
  • Reduce communication costs with data throttling, by sending only essential data and insights back to your digital core
  • Deploy, execute and update predictive analytical models at the edge

Learn how SAP Edge Services can optimise worker productivity and simplify the lives of business users and IT staff by bringing compute, storage, business semantics and predictive analytics to the intelligent edge for deterministic performance and real-time action.

  • Extend your digital core to the edge: Extend business processes beyond your data centre, enrich IoT data with enterprise business context, and provide continuity for critical business functions without reliance on network connectivity. Speed up decision making, and increase the efficiency of workers.
  • Simplify the user experience: Optimise local work flows to enhance the user experience and boost worker productivity.
  • Improve speed and performance: Quickly process events locally to accelerate performance and reduce round trips to the cloud.

  • Optimise compute spend: Choose which data to persist locally to support critical functions, and which data to aggregate and send back for deeper analysis.

  • Enable cloud-driven services: Seamlessly leverage Streaming and Persistence Service, Policy Service, Business Essential Function Service and Predictive Analytics Service at the edge with SAP Edge Services and SAP Cloud Platform, to support real-time decision making.

SAP Edge Services offers industry leading intelligence at the edge in real-time, where IoT data originates, to optimise efficiency, reduce latency and minimise disruption due to intermittent connectivity.

  • Business Functionality Service: Execute business processes at the edge to ensure uninterrupted business process flow and keep your business running - Using SAP Plant Maintenance (PM), Materials Management (MM) and Inventory Management (IM). Extend other SAP functional areas to the edge, such as Employee Health & Safety (EH&S), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Human Capital Management (HCM) and more, with repeatable architecture for edge services.

  • Real-time Decision Making: Host applications locally at the edge using edge data for sub-second system-response time to facilitate real-time decision making without round trips to the cloud.

  • Streaming Service: Analyse IoT data streams and define conditions with adjustable time windows for pattern recognition and automated events.
  • Edge Persistence Service: Locally store IoT data on gateways and run directly on IoT devices at the edge, to minimise bandwidth congestion, automate data throttling or set local data policies.
  • Predictive Analytics Service: Deploy, execute and update predictive models.  Read predictor variables from the persistency service, to predict and prevent real-time incidents and find undetected anomalies.


With SAP Leonardo IoT Edge, we offer flexible deployment options to meet your business needs. Deploy SAP Edge Services, cloud edition or SAP Edge Services, on-premise edition.

  • SAP Edge Services, on-premise edition
    SAP Edge Services, on-premise edition, provides a stand alone solution which integrates with SAP Plant Connectivity.  It offers a perpectual license model, based on number of devices.

AzkoNobel debuts SAP’s Edge

Fully approved by the race organisers and available to all competing teams, the innovative system - being used for the first time in professional sailing - is designed to track fitness and recovery levels and analyse whether the sailors are performing at their best.

The value of the intelligent edge

Edge computing extends cloud computing to the edge of the network where the physical  devices are located, closer to the source of data, while still using the cloud for heavy lifting.

Extending SAP to the edge

SAP Leonardo IoT Edge bridges physical "things" with the business world. Functional areas extended to the edge include plant maintenance, inventory management, and materials management.
