Configure Edge and Cloud Processing Functionality to Meet Customer Needs

SAP Leonardo integrates new technologies on the SAP Cloud Platform, while offering design thinking services and expertise to help fast-track your digital transformation. SAP Leonardo is composed of the following; Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning, Big Data, Analytics, Design Thinking, Block Chain, and Data Intelligence.

The Internet of Things or IoT for short, is one of the most popular and groundbreaking topics of today. This technology will shape the future we live in and give us access to information we never thought possible.

SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) is proud to announce the newest additions to the hardware certification scenario list program the IoT Gateway Edge, Gateway Edge Sensor, and Device Cloud Certifications.

IoT Gateway Edge Certification- Allows manufacturers of Edge Devices to demonstrate successful implementation of the SAP IOT Gateway Edge software on their hardware devices. The IoT Gateway acts as a virtual gateway that brings previously offline devices and assets online, managing the connectivity with devices according to the specific communication protocol that the devices implement. The IoT Gateway component provides a platform for collecting data from a sensor, making local decisions and sending data to SAP Cloud Platform for further processing, analysis and to trigger business transactions.

IoT Gateway Edge Sensor Certifications Option A & B- 

Option A: Tests the compute platform’s ability to transform data from a sensor and send it to the SAP Cloud either directly or through IoT Gateway Edge.

Option B: Tests the Sensor’s ability to send data to the SAP Cloud Platform IoT directly or via IoT Gateway Edge.

IoT Device Cloud Certification-

This certification tests the partner’s device cloud. The partners device cloud will send data to the SAP Cloud Platform IoT directly or via IoT Gateway Edge.


IoT technology will give customers and partners an opportunity to effectively process volumes of data from IoT and learn from the data. IoT provides a platform for local decisions and processing. SAP ICC hopes that pre-tested and certified devices from SAP partners will help customers jump start their IoT projects, and will allow them to focus on the outcome of their digital transformation journey, rather than its bits and pieces.

Customers today want their demands met as quickly as possible and without interruptions. As customers start adjusting to connected devices “things”, sensors, vehicles, etc. businesses  will start expecting that immediate gratification that the IoT offer supports. Business Insider recently reported there will be a total of 22.5 billion IoT devices in 2021, up from 6.6 billion in 2016. Additionally, they forecast there will be $4.8 trillion in aggregate IoT investment between 2016 and 2021. The possibilities of IoT are endless across all industries and will no doubt play a critical factor in the way we do business and process data for years to come.
