Unfortunately, you can’t get everything from a store like this. For instance, you can’t walk into a building, grab digital transformation from the shelf, and put it in your shopping cart.
Or can you?
A Real-World Place to Embark on Your Digital Transformation Journey
While implementing a digital transformation strategy at your company isn’t as simple as walking into a store and purchasing one, there is now a tangible destination you can visit to start your journey, fuel your existing one, or display your results.
SAP Leonardo Centers, part of a global network of connected locations, serve as go-to sites for digital inspiration and co-innovation. They also act as delivery mechanisms for SAP Leonardo Innovation Services. The centers offer physical spaces for companies and partners to explore how new technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, blockchain, Big Data, analytics, data intelligence, and cloud can help spur game-changing digital transformation.
At these centers — currently located in Bangalore, New York City, Paris, and São Leopoldo — SAP experts lead visitors through four critical phases:
If an organization decides to move forward with a technology, it can embark on its journey with SAP Leonardo Innovation Services to identify and connect to cutting-edge technologies and shorten time to value. These services offer a guided approach to digital transformation and result in a proof of concept.
SAP Leonardo Centers Bear Fruit
Several businesses have already collaborated with SAP at an SAP Leonardo Center or a predecessor site to create new technologies:
Global Framework, Local Flavor
All SAP Leonardo Center locations are built around a common global framework, helping ensure guests receive similar, consistent experiences wherever they visit. Each center highlights SAP Leonardo technologies through tangible showcases and offers space for co-innovation, design thinking, and prototyping.
But each SAP Leonardo Center is tailored to focus on specific topics, markets, or industries that are especially relevant in the region where the facility is embedded. For instance, experts in the Brazil center have a strong knowledge base in agriculture, so the IoT showcases there highlight precision farming. In New York City, the SAP Leonardo Center prioritizes finance, banking, and insurance.
Digital Transformation: Don’t Go It Alone
Your organization’s digital transformation shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s simply too important to your future success. In fact, 87% of companies feel digital transformation presents competitive opportunity, according to Capgemini and MIT research.
SAP Leonardo Centers offer you a chance to collaborate with digital transformation experts and partners in spaces solely dedicated to innovation. By combining efforts – rather than undertaking this complex endeavor alone – your enterprise can leverage the strengths and expertise of knowledgeable professionals and begin your digital transformation journey on the right foot.
