SAP Leonardo – An Overview based on OpenSAP course

A strategic paper mention’s that around 60% of human tasks will be automated by year 2025. The level of automation has become very sophisticated due to the availability of different technologies. The intelligent enterprise which evolved from mainframe era, comprises of business suite, digital platform and intelligent technologies. These Intelligent technologies consists of AI/ML & IoT, Block Chain, Big Data and Data intelligence and Analytics. These technologies help in experimenting with cost effectiveness and risk potential to come out with improved processes, increased revenue. There are various ways by which these intelligent technologies can be consumed either by embedding within the applications, industry innovation kits or by means of open innovation for best in class approach. Here’s is a overview of different segments of Leonardo and their features.


Lets now look into each of Leonardo component in more details.
