SAP and Endress+Hauser to cooperate to develop IIoT applications for the process industry

June 11, 2018 - SAP and Endress+Hauser will intensify their cooperation in the development of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications for the process industry. The enterprise software specialist for process and laboratory measurement technology made the announcement during ACHEMA in Frankfurt, Germany, a trade fair for the process industry. In future, both companies intend to work closer together in the development of joint solutions, sales and customer implementation.

The goal is to fully integrate the Endress+Hauser field instruments as digital twins into the SAP cloud platform. Both companies want to take advantage of the services and smart apps from SAP’s Leonardo system as well as Endress+Hauser’s IIoT offering. The idea is to integrate master and sensor data, as well as measurement values, into customer business, logistics and production processes and develop new digital services focused on predictive maintenance and predictive quality. An open platform concept forms the basis for this approach.

Endress+Hauser’s role in the partnership involves delivering the field instrumentation knowledge so critical to plant operators in the form of digital services, which will be implemented by integrating the existing Endress+Hauser IIoT services and the SAP platform using a standardized approach. From the initial creation and automatic updating of a digital twin across the entire product life cycle, to end-to- end connectivity from the sensor to the SAP IT platform, Endress+Hauser is supporting the digitalization strategy of its entire customer base.

In the SAP Asset Intelligence Network, field instruments are represented as digital twins, which serve as a basis for integration into the customer’s business processes. Using SAP Leonardo technologies like Machine Learning, Analytics and Blockchain, intelligent services can be enabled for the production environment.
