What does the Internet of Things mean to you? We first asked this question with the course “Imagine IoT”, held in 2016. Since then, IoT has continued to evolve at a rapid pace, with even more IoT projects demonstrating what’s possible in a world of digitally connected and sensing things. And SAP has responded by announcing SAP Leonardo, an innovation portfolio focused on this digital transformation.
This course includes all new content concentrated on the latest IoT trends that shape our lives both at work and at home, including related topics such as drones, autonomous vehicles, blockchain, and user experience implications for IoT.
Also included is an interactive exercise, enabling you to “touch” IoT directly. Every participant will have the chance to connect and try out SAP Connected Goods, a new SAP Leonardo IoT solution that makes it easy to connect and monitor sensor-equipped products.
The course will enable you to participate in a “prototype challenge” in which you’ll get to submit an IoT prototype, receive peer feedback, vote on your favorite submitted prototypes, and have the chance to win prizes! The top 5 winners of the prototype challenge will win cool IoT gadgets. In addition, the top 200 winners will be showcased in a gallery, and will get to choose how SAP funds entrepreneurs in the developing world through the non-profit organization Kiva.
We welcome you to participate in both the course and the prototype challenge. We hope that together, we can connect and empower not only things, but also people, as we work to create the Internet of GOOD Things to help improve the world around us.
One final note: If you participated in “Imagine IoT” in 2016, this course is the next step in learning how to build and use the Internet of Things to make life better. If you didn’t participate in “Imagine IoT,” this course is just as applicable. It’s a self-contained, end-to-end, hands-on learning experience, including the new prototype challenge on how to design and create your own IoT prototype.
