Ericsson, SAP to Offer Cloud-Based Machine-to-Machine Services; Jim Hagemann Snabe Comments

SAPlogoSAP AG and Ericsson have signed a deal to jointly market cloud-based machine-to-machine services in a move aimed at helping enterprises adopt the M2M platforms.

Ericsson will combine its network operator infrastructure, technology, services and solutions with SAP AG’s enterprise business solutions to create a joint M2M infrastructure under the partnership, the two companies said Monday.

The two companies have begun engaging operators from across the world to offer the model and industry-specific services to enterprises.

“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,” said Jim Hagemann Snabe, co-CEO at SAP.

Multinational enterprises have struggled to adopt M2M technologies because of issues regarding worldwide coverage and end-to-end services in some industries, the companies said.

The joint offerings are intended to help enterprises with maintenance, remote service, inventory, logistics and road transport management, vending and customer experience management.

Ericsson will also deploy its consulting, systems integration and managed services, device and applications testing, and verification services to address mobile network resources.
