Opening Introduction



The purpose of the event is "Let's challenge it! Start doing from now on!"

and this makes sense from the "Learning Pyramid" theory. According to the theory, 5% can only recall what you learn only taking lecture to increase up to 75% to practice doing.

In the introduction, call for participation to the facebook community ChillSAP, please also join.

今回のSIT Tokyoのテーマは、「チャレンジしよう! 行動をおこすキッカケに」  ということもありますが、学習ピラミッド理論によると講習を受講するだけで


コミュニティ活動への参加も呼びかけられましたので、ぜひ Facebook コミュニティ ChillSAP にも参加してもらえたらと思います

Session 3 SAPでIoTやってみた (講師 大塚將司)

"I tried out SAP IoT" by Masashi Otsuka (@sapsumikko on Twitter)

Abstract 概要

ご存知「すみっこさん」のTechEd のセッションサマリと独自にIoTを使ってお子さんの位置情報をトラッキングしてみたお話。

TechEd ハンズオンでは、IoTとEdge Serviceについて。



The speaker is famous blogger as "sumikko in SAP world".

He presented the Teched sessions summary of IoT area and also tried to build a solution to track his daughter by GPS.

The TechEd HandsOn is about IoT and Edge Services.

The example is to process shipping using IoT sensor device and to detect and inform sales representative for the abnormal vibration and temperature by sensor device.

I had ever heard about that similar situation is happened to ship medicines using cold storage container. But once reached to the port and stopped without power supply and the medicines are not kept in the designated environment to keep the quality.

IoTのハンズオンはTechEd当時のIDがないと実行できないけれど、Edge Servicesのハンズオンはトライアルアカウントで最後までに実行できるのでぜひやってみてほしいとすすめた。

He recommended to try the IoT Edge Services HandsOn, which is still available to execute only with trial account.


I personally took an external IoT course and would try one.

Session 4 コロナ対策:紙の証憑はもういらない! Document Information Extraction SAP AI Business Services (SAP関口←筆者)

"No more paper invoices in this Colona situation! - Document Information Extraction SAP AI Business Services" by me ( Yasuko Sekiguchi)

Abstract 概要

このセッションでは、SAP AI Business Services と呼ぶ、Machine Learning のサービスをいくつかの業務的な用途で汎用的に使用できるようにパッケージ化したものをご紹介しました。

In this session, I have shared the overview of SAP AI Business Services, which is packaged Machine Learning services, to be generally consumed for many business purpose.

Document Information Extraction (以下DIE)以外にもいくつかありますが、今回紹介したDIEは自身が過去に数回関与したCo-Innovation プロジェクトで開発されたという経緯もありました。

There are some AI business Services other than Document Information Extraction (hereby DIE), I choose this is because I was involved in the co-innovation project years ago.

DIE は、事前定義モデル。Invoice Document を読み込むことを目的として開発されています。文書書式は縦型のみ、横書きにはまだ対応していません。

DIE is a pretrained ML services developed to OCR-extract invoice document mainly. The supported format is portrait, landscape is not supported currently.

他のドキュメントタイプをサポートするためには、10,000枚の学習が必要。(Co-Innovation アプローチ)

To cover the other document types such as Sales Orders, Purchase Orders,  it is needed Co-Innovation Approach to train the model with 10K documents per new document type.


There were an obstacle to train the new document types with annotate the extraction fields by translating into position in a certain manner. This was a huge manual efforts. The annotation is covered by user friendly tool. This is progress from the past PoC.

Trial 環境でDIEの有効化を行い、UI上で自身の持っていたAmazon の購入請求書を読込ました。


I have set up the DIE in BTP trial and extract an Invoice which I purchased via Amazon.

It was extracted in the good quality. And the UI tool to edit the extracted data and mapping additional fields there was pretty easy.



I was not able to introduce due to time limitation, but I have also tried beta feature to create new template. Which is only available via customer collaboration project.


Create new template with Shinkansen to Osaka, and extract the receipt of Shinkansen from Osaka using the created template. It was done!


There might be more precise validation would be needed in business use, but please feel free to try and propose it to use at your customer project!
