On this IoT For All podcast episode, John Candish, Head of IoT Products at SAP Digital Interconnect explains what connectivity is and why it’s fundamental to enabling enterprises to become intelligent. John also discusses the relationship between AI, IoT and connectivity.

John provides insight into the issues his early customers experienced—customer pain points and needs that inspired the creation of IoT Connect 365, an enterprise service that simplifies IoT connectivity, scalability and management through a single contract and connection with SAP. We also discuss how IoT connectivity is being managed and how organizations can connect multiple devices across different network types at scale.

The episode concludes with a conversation about the impact 5G will have once it’s fully deployed and scaled, hurdles to IoT adoption and which industries are leading IoT adoption. Finally, John offers some advice on what to consider when choosing the correct connectivity for an IoT solution.
