SAP and Endress+Hauser will expand on their partnership for the development of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications for the process industry. The two announced the commitment during ACHEMA in Frankfurt, Germany. In future, both companies intend to work closer together in the development of joint solutions, sales and customer implementation.
The goal is to fully integrate the Endress+Hauser field instruments as digital twins into the SAP cloud platform. Both companies want to take advantage of the services and smart apps from SAP’s Leonardo system as well as Endress+Hauser’s IIoT offering. The idea is to tightly integrate master and sensor data, as well as measurement values, into customer business, logistics and production processes and develop new digital services focused on predictive maintenance and predictive quality. An open platform concept forms the basis for this approach.
“Two innovative companies have come together here to realize the end-to-end OT/IT integration from field instrument all the way to business processes,” said Hala Zeine, SAP’s president of digital supply chain and manufacturing.
