Turning Operations and Logistics into the digital worldFlorencia Calomino
One of the new trends that is currently emerging is the Internet of Things (IoT). The creation of smaller and more intelligent means that from glasses to miniprocessors are connected to collect, receive and send information. Despite looking more like entertainment-related innovations, they are revolutionizing the business worlds.
In the agricultural sector, for example, the introduction of drones serves to optimize plantings. Because it allows to control the soil temperature, it allows to obtain data to determine key factors such as the necessity of irrigation by culture and to automate it.
Our Chief Innovation Officer, Juan Alejandro Knight, is an expert on the subject and delivered a talk “Digitizing Operations and Logistics”, explaining the Internet connection of Things with the business world during the SAP Executive Summit in Buenos Aires.
In a 45-minute presentation I explained how real-time delivery tracking can increase productivity and logistics efficiency by 21%, as well as reduce costs by 45%.
He also detailed that the key part of this combination is SAP Leonardo, the portfolio of solutions associated with IoT and SAP. Features such as security, adaptability, real-time data processing, integration with reporting tools, forecasts and projections make it an essential tool to develop this innovative area.
Although it may seem like a distant trend, a World Economic Forum study indicates that the IoT is one of the six major IT trends that will shape society during the 2020s, while Business Insider projected a total of 22.5 billion IoT devices in 2021. This implies that the future is already beginning to write. Having the correct allies is essential to not be left with mere data collection and convert them into both resource optimization and event prediction.
