Ericsson and SAP Target Cloud-Based Machine-to-Machine Solutions

Ericsson and SAP will jointly market and sell cloud-based, machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions and services to enterprises via operators around the globe.  The solutions will be based on a combined software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering from Ericsson and SAP within M2M.

The alliance combines Ericsson's Device Connection Platform & Service Enablement Platform with enterprise business solutions powered by the SAP HANA platform.  Ericsson will also provide its consulting, systems integration and managed services, and complementary device and applications testing, as well as verification services to facilitate a faster time-to-market, efficient use of mobile network resources and an optimized user experience.

"Today's announcement is a first step toward delivering on a shared vision that SAP and Ericsson have for co-innovating with our customers worldwide to help them deliver on the promise of M2M. Together, we will break down the barriers that prevent customer adoption of M2M solutions by delivering a simple, affordable and fast-to-implement solution.  Enterprises will benefit from an offering that provides them with everything they need to connect to machines, and helps turn high volumes of data into real-time knowledge and decision-making," stated Jim Hagemann Snabe, Co-CEO of SAP AG.
