SAP's tomraftery presented this today, hosted by svea.becker
Tom says there is still a lot of confusion about what it is
It is not a product, application but a brand
It is an innovation portfolio product

Why are we here? Digital transformation
Initially Leonardo was IoT
Then in January it was established as a brand
July - Leonardo Live in Frankfurt
The marketecture slide
Machine Learning is used in all types of applications - fraud management, image management, brand identification
Big data - meter readings every 15 minutes versus once a month
Extract information from the data, and get predictive information
Data intelligence, blockchain
IoT with Edge computing to reduce compute times
Brainstorming, design thinking, integration blueprint, roadmap, development
"start small prototype" and think big
Why would I want one?
Efficiency led model with Caterpillar, a Fortune 50 company
Wanted a standard operating system for plants - 9 plants globally
Wanted to move to a cloud system to "harmonize data"
They deployed the Digital Boardroom
They deployed Vehicle Insights to obtain visibility of forklifts from loading docks to the lines
They deployed Predictive Maintenance for their manufacturing
IoT Trenitalia predictive maintenance to cut costs; wanted to be more competitive and reliable (against Uber) - save 8-10% on annual maintenance budget and 5-6% greater utilization of rolling stock and spare parts, and increased safety
Saved $20M Euros on fines for being "on time"
Cost of project was $50 million
Port of Hamburg - saved 5K hours per day by having horizontal integration of data
Using distributing manufacturing for 3-D printing; they have been using IoT - trucks have several sensors in them.
They hold stock parts for customers - if a machine breaks down, send a part in x number of hours
Moving to 3-D printing and ship to customer (virtual warehouse) - "print on delivery"; printing farm in Louisville, Kentucky - 12 hour delivery; building a facility in Singapore - new business model for UPS
Tom said they were "disrupting themselves"
Continental Tires - over the air updates for car manufacturers, remote cloud keys for opening trunks
Using Vehicle Insights for remote data platform - multi brand / blend of vehicle in platform to share information - fleet managers could use this when vehicles break down, due in for service; sell product to service center. Service centers can use the service as a service.
Average car in the EU is 9.5 years; going to retrofit for older cars
Kaiser (air ocmpressors) and selling the utility; want the machine running 99.99% of time

Question & Answer
Q: Why was it necessary to create Leonardo "brand"? It caused a lot of confusion along the lines of "what does it do".
A: Lots of products in portfolio; one name to cover them all. Initially it was IoT portfolio and now it is the innovation portfolio - IBM has Watson, Microsoft has Azure, Cortana
Q: How does SAP Leonardo apply to small-medium businesses? All use cases are for big companies
A: Depends on definition of small/medium - things are relative
Innovation program starts at $150-$250K
68fdcfd7801242baafce4e6cd1b5d218 added a request for SAP "with a scalable PaaS pricing it should also be useful for SMBs"
Q: Can we deploy Leonardo as a platform/service on the MS Azure? if so can you share some details on how does that work.
