The showcase is the result of a successful collaboration between SAP and Huawei, a multinational networking and telecommunications provider headquartered in Shenzhen, China. The collaboration launched in November 2014. It aims to develop industrial applications for the Internet of Things, a combination of computing, networking, and telecommunications technologies that allows firms to digitize real-world processes in many industries. The showcase at CeBIT focuses on process transformation in construction, an industry of particular importance in fast growth economies.

The joint showcase of SAP and Huawei at CeBIT 2015 featured a physical model of a construction project that attracted the attention of many high profile visitors. The model allows visitors to simulate operational events such as the failure of a concrete pump and monitor the adjustment of production capacity and fleet scheduling in real-time on a computer screen. Changes to production plans made by the software system are then applied back to a miniature plant in the physical model.
SAP board members Gerd Oswald, Ingrid-Helen Arnold, and Michael Kleinemeier visited the booth at CeBIT. Other external guests like senior executives including William Xu, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer of Huawei, and the Mayor the City of Nanjing has paid their visited to our booth.
