After last year's successful event in Dublin, we are bringing our IOT Symposium to the UK!

If you would like to LEARN and NETWORK with other SAP customers and experts alike, ensuring you make new connections, benefiting both you and your organisation then you need to attend this symposium.

Unlock your Intelligent Enterprise with IoT and Machine Learning

Learn how to achieve business outcomes, and stay competitive in the market, by using edge technologies

Learn about SAP products and services that can enable the use of edge technologies

The spread of Internet connectivity among virtually every device around us has created the world of the IoT. Every device has an identity that can be tracked, monitored, given direction to, and received information from. SAP Leonardo IoT Products and Services enable organisations to embed IoT data and technology into almost any line of business solution one can imagine. Learn how SAP companies are leveraging it to introduce greater productivity and an array of new product offerings to their customers.

Ralf Vath & Larissa Limarova from SAP will deliver this keynote, which will also give insight into an award winning customer example:

KAESER Kompressoren SE is on a journey towards realising a full Digital Supply Chain, from Design-to-Operate. With the Digital Supply Chain goal, KAESER also implemented an SAP Asset Intelligent Network as a single point of truth for documentation of a compressor running at a customer location thus providing a digital twin. In addition, KAESER has introduced Compressed Air as a Service with an option to own equipment or not. Click here to read more.

Andy Steer from itelligence will present Bringing the Digital Twin to life. Using SAP, IoT and Microsoft HoloLens to bridge the gap between the physical and the digital.

itelligence can guide you on your journey to the intelligent enterprise and help you to introduce entirely new business services, reduce costs with streamlined and automated processes, and become far more agile with sound data insight.

During this session itelligence will introduce the concept of the digital twin and its cross industry applications, from asset management, field service and training.

The session will then go on to illustrate how itelligence have used SAP S/4HANA, IoT technology, the SAP Cloud Platform and the Microsoft HoloLens to create a "mixed reality" solution that bridges the gap between the physical and digital. Take service and maintenance scenarios to a whole new dimension. Accelerate Industry 4.0 initiatives within your business.

In addition to a number of knowledge rich plenary sessions, the symposium will include up to eight different breakout sessions and a number of excellent networking opportunities.
