You wouldn’t set off on a trek up Mt. Everest without an expert guide, and you wouldn’t take a step without making sure you had the proper tools and equipment to reach the summit. Believe me when I say that because I worked very hard for 3 years to try to climb the highest mountain on earth.

The first blog in this two-part series covered the need for an experienced, seasoned guide on your journey to your factory of the future, provided by Hitachi Optimized Factory. This blog takes a closer look at the tools you’ll need to succeed with your SAP digital core.

If your company is one of the many that has invested in SAP solutions as part of your digital journey, you know you’ve made a great choice. But your journey has just begun. To help you create a comprehensive and effective suite of digital manufacturing tools and a pragmatic IoT roadmap, Hitachi is working with SAP to create a complete suite of SAP Leonardo accelerators that will extend your SAP digital core to transform your business into a truly intelligent enterprise for the digital economy.
