What is SAP Leonardo?
SAP Leonardo is the digital innovation system integrating breakthrough technologies and running seamlessly in the cloud. It offers design thinking methodology together with SAP expertise to help businesses rapidly adopt new capabilities and business models – an accelerator for digital transformation.
It is SAP’s vision of the digital future. It gets its name from Leonardo Da Vinci who was, without a doubt, an innovator, someone way ahead of his time. In the same way SAP Leonardo carries instant, universal recognition – both as a name and as a figure known for innovation in a ground-breaking era of science and discovery. What name could be more appropriate?
It is the quite simply the technology for connecting “everything”.
The SAP Leonardo portfolio consists of various components:
These targeted solutions and accelerators are built on technology platform consisting of SAP Cloud Platform (PaaS infrastructure offering various technologies), SAP Leonardo (Business and technical services to rapidly build re-usable applications), Edge computing (for data ingestion at edge applications)
SAP and Capgemini partnership
SAP and Capgemini have come together with a joint group level initiative called “Fast Digital 4 Discrete Industries (FD4DI)” . FD4DI is designed to help clients in the discrete manufacturing industries to improve their company using SAP Leonardo based solutions. Capgemini and SAP are investing in the creation of a series of offers and go-to-market positions that target specifically the discrete manufacturing industries, including aerospace & defence, automotive, high tech, consumer products, and industrial machinery & components. This includes business led digital transformation use cases underpinned by the latest Capgemini and SAP technology, which can be rapidly deployed.
Capgemini are at the forefront of SAP Leonardo exploitation and already have a selection of use cases and prototypes that can be used to demonstrate the potential Capgemini can deliver with SAP Leonardo. The use cases include:
- Preventative maintenance
- Track and Trace for goods in the supply chain

Through continued innovation and commitment to IoT, Capgemini have a “SAP IoT-in-a-BOX” solution, a pre-configured, plug-and-play, scalable, and available as a “Solution-as-a-Service”. To see the SAP IoT-in-a-box and the work Capgemini are undertaking with clients, contact our experts.
How can we help you “Transition to Digital”?
Capgemini, along with SAP, can help our customers get on the digital journey. After an initial discovery session using design thinking techniques, Capgemini’s and SAP’s rapid deployment solution bundles can be utilised to design and build a prototype, which can be then piloted before rolling it out across the enterprise.
This is the first blog in the Leonardo series and will be regularly updated with examples and information show casing Capgemini’s commitment to this exciting new world.
The purpose is to create awareness about the new technology (the world is changing), and how it can be utilised to go for digital innovation. Use cases outlining the solution benefits, information about new disruptive technologies and how it could help you, will be part of the blog series.
You can benefit from Leonardo without disrupting your existing landscape. The core ERP applications can run as-is, innovative digital solutions can be built on top of it.
