A high value investment, for a high value outcome, built on a solid foundation
Why Continuum of Care? An analogy.
A multi-point road bridge is designed to support vehicular movement end-to-end, for many years. It is a strategic investment towards enabling a high value outcome, for example commerce and trade. To last the test of time and ensure sustainability, scalability, and reliability, the bridge has to be designed, built, and supported on an end-to-end solid foundation, across multiple touch points. This requires end-to-end design thinking and agile collaborations, planning and governance, by experts through the life cycle of the project and beyond, to deliver continuous business value – the basis for Continuum of Care.
What is Continuum of Care Managed Data Services for IoT, and how is it delivered?
Organizations depend on data to run their business. In today’s data driven economy, business agility depends on the in-time availability of relevant data for business continuity or information processing, across processes and the extended enterprise. The maturity of capabilities to enable integration of Operational Technologies (OT), as in a shop floor, with Information Technologies (IT), as in a datacenter, offers organizations an opportunity for IoT Digital Transformation – a strategic imperative for continuous price-performance and competitive advantage. IoT Digital Transformation offers a high value business application outcome whether for active insights, predictive analytics, or sense and act business automation.
“IoT is the marriage of two very different worlds — operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) — each with very different technological lifespans and operational requirements.” – Gartner
A successful IoT Application outcome will depend on the high availability, and efficient data access and movement across the IoT landscape – data is the very foundation of the expected business outcome. To build a solid data foundation for a sustainable, scalable, and reliable IoT enablement and business outcome requires advanced end-to-end data management and integration techniques. The SAP Continuum of Care Managed Data Services for IoT is a best practices based Data Management and Integration methodology for a non-disruptive and sustainable IoT Digital Transformation. This methodology incorporates a set of well-defined services, including discovery, engagement transition, incubation, operations and support. The Continuum of Care Managed Data Services for IoT helps customers realize their data management and integration success criteria based on specific volume, velocity, variety, veracity requirements and security needs, across the IoT Application landscape, on premise, in the cloud, or across.
“IoT is not one thing; it’s the integration of several things. IoT requires advanced integration skills and end-to-end thinking.” – Gartner
