In this blog, I am going to showcase how SMEs running the SAP ERP Cloud – SAP Business ByDesign (ByD) can become the Intelligent Enterprises by optimizing, innovating and extending their business with the help of the SAP Business Technology Platform, particularly using the advantages of the SAP IoT Services.
First let me define, What is the Intelligent Enterprise (IE)?
The Intelligent Enterprise focuses on day-to-day business processes to remove repetitive tasks, and move your efforts to higher value activities. It gives you better tools so you can engage better with your customers, suppliers, and employees. These applications are intended to be specific, global, and as well applicable to small, large or middle-sized enterprises.
Nowadays we can all see the evolution of IoT in industry 4.0 and the importance of 5G networks for IoT.
- SAP is named a leader in worldwide industrial IoT platforms in Manufacturing by IDC’s MarketScape – Read an excerpt from the report.
- The IoT is key to digital transformation success – Read the study made by SAP-commissioned Forrester Consulting study “Accelerate Your Digital Transformation With IoT.”
As the IoT layer of SAP’s BTP, it enables users to reimagine business processes and models with embedded IoT services and data, where data enables intelligence that which in turn feeds process automation and ultimately, innovation.
Hence with SAP IoT services for SAP BTP, customers and partners can develop, customize, and operate Internet of Things business applications in the cloud, where in such apps they can seamlessly turn their sensors’ data into contextual insights.

This IoT app can either run standalone or can even be embedded inside the SAP Business ByD business area in order to facilitate the users’ daily business matters.
Thanks to help of the Mashups in SAP Business ByD, I could use the HTML Mashup feature to embed the IoT web based app directly onto the SAP Business ByD Service Request screen.

Indeed with the help of SAP IoT Services, customers can indeed unlock the IE by embedding real-time telemetry data into new and existing Business Processes in the cloud.
To conclude, The SAP Business Technology Platform empowers customers to become an intelligent enterprise through integration, extension, and data-to-value from all SAP and third-party application and data assets, while ensuring our customers’ long-term success through agility, value-creation and continual innovation.
