Digital Supply Chain

The agile engineering teams of SAP Munich at location Hallbergmoos deliver innovative business applications that are part of the SAP S/4 HANA Digital Supply Chain solutions. They co-innovate with customers to provide intelligent services and apps in the area of manufacturing with a focus on inventory management, production planning, execution and control, and enterprise asset management. 

Recent innovations in manufacturing have been new UX solutions for Material Requirement Planning (MRP) and increased performance of the MRP run on the HANA database (‘MRP live’), which allows execution of MRP runs in much shorter cycles and analysis on real-time data.

Innovations in enterprise asset management include the new Actual Maintenance Cost Analysis app, which uses real-time data to enable maintenance planners to track and evaluate actual maintenance costs and provide insights needed to take immediate action. This is achieved by presenting business operations and business analytics in one dashboard.

The Industry 4.0 & Digital Supply Chain Innovation team is addressing Industry 4.0 relevant challenges in research and co-innovation projects with customers

.It is part of the SAP S/4 HANA Digital Supply Chain and develops approaches with autonomous systems like robots in warehouse management scenarios. 

To accomplish that, multiple technologies from edge to cloud, machine learning, or distributed process management are needed that will enable customers to address many automation challenges. In addition, interoperability as the key enabler of Industry 4.0 is being implemented by the team to enable new business models and to reduce integration efforts based on industrial standards.

Combatting real customer challenges together with great colleagues while also being able to work on and even drive cutting-edge technology is an accelerating experience.

Climate 21

SAP’s product vision is to embed sustainability as a new dimension of success in all analytical and transactional applications in end-to-end business processes across the entire value chain. And in doing so, help customers address three dimensions of success – top line (business model innovation), bottom line (operational excellence), and green line (sustainability).

The SAP Munich Climate 21 team develops cloud-native applications and services to support our customers in understanding and acting on their sustainability impact in all relevant business processes. For example, these applications plan to make it easy to calculate the CO2 emissions of relevant business activities based on data from various SAP systems. The team leverages state-of-the-art technologies to build standard products that help our customers in pursuing their climate-related objectives of the 21st century.

SAP Innovation Center Network

SAP Innovation Center Network Munich is the latest addition to the SAP Innovation Center Network. The mission is to future-proof SAP by exploring and contextualizing transformative technology with their internal and external partners, researchers, and students. The SAP Munich team focuses on new foundational platform technologies for the intelligent enterprise in close cooperation with academic partners at TUM and other leading institutions.

Open Source Technologies

At SAP Munich we are developing multiple open source projects – projects with its code accessible for everyone to reuse and contribute to. This way, SAP is supporting its partners and customers in building and extending their applications exactly the way they want to, helping them fit into their own specific technology landscapes. Project Kyma (extending applications cloud-natively) and Project Luigi (enterprise-ready micro frontend framework) are great locally made examples of how customers can benefit from such an open approach.

Kyma is a platform for extending applications with serverless functions and microservices. It provides a selection of cloud-native projects glued together to simplify the creation and management of extensions. Luigi on the other hand helps you to build modularizable, extensible, scalable, and consistent UIs and Web Apps. With it, you can create a unified user experience around your complex functionality in a distributed development environment. 

Kubernetes Runtime

In Munich, we love following the path of openness when building applications ourselves. Our Kubernetes runtime (full name: SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, Kyma runtime) is based on the Gardener and Kyma open source projects that SAP itself has launched. With this new runtime customers as well as internal teams can build cloud-native applications and services to extend SAP and non-SAP solutions. The runtime gives organizations the ability to develop their own SAP application extensions with their cloud-native developers and create unique customer experiences.
