SAP SE and Jasper today announced they are collaborating to help enterprises simplify the process of deploying and managing Internet of Things (IoT) services on a global scale. Together, SAP and Jasper will team to offer integration of their solutions designed to help simplify and dramatically shorten the time to launch, manage and monetize IoT services. The announcement was made at Mobile World Congress (MWC) being held March 2–5 in Barcelona.
The Jasper Control Center platform, which automates the lifecycle of IoT services, is planned to integrate with the SAP HANA® platform, creating business value for customers and partners by analyzing service subscription and usage data.
