SAP announced the expansion of its SAP Leonardo Blockchain technologies, which create immediate business value for customers.
SAP provides enterprise blockchain services to build and extend applications, allows management of blockchain-related data, infuses SAP manufacturing, supply chain and other products with blockchain capabilities, and plans to advance the technology with industry peers.
According to Gartner’s study, the reasons mentioned for companies hesitating to go into Blockchain entail:
- A lack of skills to help in the implementation of blockchain projects
- Accommodation of growth in resources as blockchain developments grow
- Blockchain solutions require radical changes to the structure of IT departments
Companies do not need to fear any of these challenges with SAP as the partner of choice to conveniently explore, integrate, and scale blockchain.
