ERP as IoT Device Management Software

One of the key technologies of this technological revolution that we are witnessing in the business world is the IoT (Internet of Things). The Internet of Things allows devices to be interconnected with each other, in such a way that there is a flow of data that can be collected and analyzed to have even greater control of our business, allowing us to detect inefficiencies and opportunities in all day-to-day activities.

ERP in the context of IoT device management software

ERPs are enterprise resource management software. Those who go beyond basic functionalities manage, among other business resources, IoT devices. Choosing a robust ERP as IoT device management software offers many advantages in this regard for the integration of these systems.

SAP Business One, the leading ERP for SMBs, is one of the most complete ERP software we work with. It offers modules and functionalities for all areas of the business, and can even expand its features through different channels, such as complementary modules or add-ons.

If you are looking for IoT device management software, you should know that when you acquire SAP Business One, although it is not its main function, it offers advanced capabilities to integrate with IoT solutions and embedded analytics, thus achieving a software that covers each and every one of the company's needs. However, in this post we will focus exclusively on the benefits for IoT.

Real-time monitoring and management

With SAP Business One, IoT device management becomes simpler and more agile. Users can access information from IoT devices through intuitive dashboards. In this way, with a simple glance, we know the current state of the devices in terms of their operation and performance, being able to detect any problem in time, as well as identifying areas for improvement and making agile decisions at the right time.

With SAP Business One, we can have all the necessary information about IoT devices: location, performance, status, maintenance history, among others. This functionality, in addition to reducing costs and improving productivity, eliminates downtime due to critical failures that arise when the problem is not detected in time and extends the useful life of the devices we have connected.

Data collection and analysis from all devices

SAP Business One automates the collection and analysis of data from all connected devices. In this way, as all the data is on the same platform, we are able to have a complete view of the company's activity, facilitating monitoring and eliminating errors due to duplication of information and the fragmentation of data in silos, which happens when the information comes from several systems or we have disconnected or manual systems.

SAP Business One works as a powerful IoT device management software because of the analytical power it offers. It applies technologies such as business intelligence to, in addition to detecting possible failures, also obtain patterns, trends and even establish predictions that feed decision-making and allow, for example, to carry out and schedule predictive and corrective maintenance at the right time.

The reports are also generated fully automatically and we can customize them according to the performance indicators and information that interests us the most. In this way, we obtain exhaustive reports, adapted to our needs and without any effort.

The information is synchronized with other areas of the company and ERP modules

The analyzed data is integrated with the rest of the SAP Business One modules : production, sales, inventory, finance, among others. This improves team cohesion, as all departments have access to the same information, based on objective, accurate and continuously updated data.

Capabilities that protect the network of devices and the integrity of information

It is vital that an IoT device management software has robust data security systems, especially due to the proliferation of cyberattacks that companies suffer today, such as malware. SAP Business One ensures the integrity of device information across multiple pathways.

First of all, it has authentication and authorization systems to prevent external devices from gaining access, together with data encryption and network segmentation tools that ensure the secure flow of information between IoT devices and the ERP. In addition, the system performs continuous monitoring to detect any suspicious or unauthorized activity, as well as possible vulnerabilities that may arise and their subsequent management.

Finally, SAP Business One also has backup and recovery capabilities and ensures regulatory compliance.
