SAP, Philips to make cities smarter with SAP HANA®

SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) and Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) said they will collaborate to link real-time information from Philips connected streetlights with data from other sensors in a single integrated city dashboard to help cities gather valuable information.

The joint offering combines real-time situational awareness based on the SAP HANA® platform with the Philips CityTouch street lighting management system to give planners a 360-degree view of data — such as street lighting, parking and traffic controls — to plan better and manage costs.

The agreement between SAP and Philips started in Buenos Aires, where Philips is refurbishing 91,000 streetlights with LEDs, controlled by Philips´ CityTouch, which interfaces directly with the SAP HANA platform.
