For instance, real-time environmental conditions such as location, temperature, humidity and vibration at various units of customers can be processed with SAP Edge Services and Verizon’s 5G network. The analysis part can be taken care of by Verizon’s ThingSpace-enabled Critical Asset Sensor (CAS) and SAP Edge Services. This will generate real-time insights.

SAP Field Service Management solution, based on the analytics can generate automatic service calls, driving.

Similarly, Verizon’s ThingSpace platform provides developers tools to build and deploy connectivity and manage data capture for CAS and hundreds of other certified IoT devices on behalf of the companies.
The association of Verizon and SAP is a time-tested one. For instance, Verizon had selected the SAP S/4HANA Finance solution and SAP S/4HANA for its central Finance foundation.
