SAP SQL Anywhere: A Database for the Internet of Things
SAP SQL Anywhere and IoT – Focusing on data collection and synchronization
Many Internet of Things (IoT) applications demand a reliable data store at the point of data collection, rather than relying on connections to the cloud for data. These include applications that must continue to operate in the face of unexpected network interruptions, and applications that have complex data processing requirements.
SAP SQL Anywhere (a robust embedded data management solution) is ideal for supporting scenarios such as these, where large volumes of data are created at the edge of the network and may not be transported to data centers regularly. The software is engineered specifically for deployment in remote environments or locations that lack IT resources.
SAP SQL Anywhere is extremely lightweight, integrates with enterprise systems running on servers, desktops, mobile or remote environments, and can be deployed on devices with minimal compute and storage capacity. It has integrated self-managing, data synchronization capabilities, and that is what makes this technology special.
In the case of IoT data management, SAP SQL Anywhere is being used to support smart energy grids, smart vending machines, automated sensor-driven supply chains and many more data-driven scenarios.
