SAP Leonardo Big Data: what is it and why implement it?

In SAP Leonardo, everything revolves around Big Data, through some of the most important technologies on what it is built on:

  • Machine Learning uses Data to make machines more efficient and, consequently, productivity. This can reveal useful, particularly, in the manufacturing field for products quality control or in the financial field to avoid frauds and for the rating of risks.
  • Block chain. Data are stored on various machines linked with each other in this huge Database. In this way, each business department can access to the same information and the Data updates happens real time.
  • Big Data. The collection of Data available on the market, starting from public websites and used to make reports and analysis related to the core business.
