By using SAP Leonardo, customers can innovate more rapidly and scale that innovation, embedding it into all of their applications and business processes. SAP will bring our expertise in design thinking services to help customers solve the complex problems of becoming digital through SAP Leonardo Innovation Services – aligned to specific use cases, by industry. These services are designed to quickly move from innovative ideas to a blueprint for implementation at scale, with a compelling business case.

Everything will come at a predefined price and our engagement is time-bound, so every customer has an accelerated time-to-value.”
