SAP Leonardo IoT

In my opinion SAP Leonardo IoT lets us access emerging technologies such as machine learning, big data, internet of things (IoT) and blockchain. It is often associated with SAP Cloud Platform services but it’s not limited to this, as it includes predictive features in S/4HANA (on-premise or in the cloud).

Watson IoT Platform

For large companies with large-scale manufacturing, electronics management, and infrastructures that require lots of maintenance, IBM Watson IoT is a must-have. It greatly increases performance, decreases downtime, and is an all-around great management dashboard. This is best for infrastructures that have a larger infrastructures of IoT devices in an enterprise/manufacturing setting, otherwise IBM Watson may not bring many benefits to your team.

Watson IoT Platform

  • The asset information is available in both static and dynamic format (from thermal images, to OEM data, to time series data). The ability to ingest all the information using a single platform has great value.
  • Another benefit is a seamless integration with Maximo. This has been a challenge with other 3rd party systems available.
  • The experience of IBM Maximo systems updates is positive.

SAP Leonardo IoT

  • Large Amount of Data Management.

  • Integration with other data center like Microsoft azure.

Watson IoT Platform

  • Some of the tutorials could use a little more improvement - While there is a considerable amount of documentation, most of the good documentation for Watson IoT we found to be from third-parties.
  • Administration and billing tools could use a bit more improvement - The UI is a bit clunky and poorly-designed here.
  • Be prepared to work with IBM support to get this going - Their turn-around support for inquiries can be lengthy, and setup time may also be quite lengthy because of this.

SAP Leonardo IoT

Although with Hyperledger Fabric you can integrate some IoT devices, SAP IoT has a way better and more standardized GUI that really helps with efficiency. It is really hard with Hyperledger Fabric to navigate through a Linux terminal if you've never used bash. However, with SAP IoT the portal is pretty easy to navigate and understand. All the user has to do is know the higher-level design behind their IoT devices so that they can correctly implement them.

Predix has recently launched their Asset Performance management Unified system. I am keen to see how it stacks up against Watson.

Watson IoT Platform

  • Positive - This tool greatly increases most company's manufacturing and production efficiency, and the use-cases are extensive. It was a great way of decreasing down-time for us.
  • Negative - Took lots of work and energy to get up and running, we had to rely on IBM support and tutorials many times during this process.
  • Positive - Quite cheap, most of the tiers of pricing cost very little, and it's possible to use Watson IoT for a few months for free to see if it is beneficial for your company.
