Climate 21 is a multi-year program to help customers achieve their climate-related objectives.
Working with partners, SAP will embed sustainability metrics across its portfolio, helping customers understand, analyse and optimise the carbon footprint of their products and operations.
The first product under the Climate 21 banners is SAP Product Carbon Footprint Analytics. It runs in the SAP Analytics Cloud, using data from SAP S/4Hana and third-party sources to help customers understand their carbon footprint.
SAP's Industry Cloud strategy will deliver vertical solutions from SAP and its partners using open APIs, an open process model, open domain model and common business services. AI, IoT and other technologies from SAP will help developers to accelerate development and deliver greater business value.
Industry 4.Now is an initiative to deliver greater insights, automation and responsiveness across the supply chain, helping to move Industry 4.0 from a factory-focused initiative to a company-wide business strategy.
SAP intends to deliver products with embedded analytics and predictive capabilities that will support better business decisions and drive new business models and revenue streams.
SAP's Unified Business Network strategy aims to bring end-to-end visibility, increased efficiency and collaboration across the entire supply chain processes, including design, planning, sourcing, procurement, manufacturing, logistics and asset operations. Interconnected businesses will gain better visibility and collaboration across the supply chain.
Technologies and products involved include ERP, analytics, Ariba Network, SAP Asset Intelligence Network, SAP Logistics Business Network and SAP Fieldglass.
