Capgemini UK has launched SAP Leonardo Services and will be running a blog series by our experts called: “Capgemini’s Fast Digital with SAP Leonardo,” covering a broad range of topics relating to SAP Leonardo. Through the series, we will regularly update our views on the new technology, the innovation Capgemini brings to the market with SAP Leonardo, and specific success stories. This blog, the first in the series, will give you an introduction to SAP Leonardo and its components, to Capgemini’s partnership with SAP and other vendors, and to our approach in delivering Leonardo solutions.

What is SAP Leonardo?

SAP Leonardo is the digital innovation system integrating breakthrough technologies and running seamlessly in the cloud. It offers design-thinking methodology together with SAP expertise to help businesses rapidly adopt new capabilities and business models—an accelerator for digital transformation.

It is SAP’s vision of the digital future. It gets its name from Leonardo da Vinci who was, without a doubt, an innovator—someone way ahead of his time. In the same way, SAP Leonardo carries instant, universal recognition—both as a name and as a figure known for innovation in a ground-breaking era of science and discovery. What name could be more appropriate?


It is the quite simply the technology for connecting “everything.”

The SAP Leonardo portfolio consists of various components:


These targeted solutions and accelerators are built on technology platform consisting of SAP Cloud Platform (PaaS infrastructure offering various technologies), SAP Leonardo (Business and technical services to rapidly build re-usable applications), Edge computing (for data ingestion at edge applications).

SAP and Capgemini partnership

SAP and Capgemini have come together with a joint group-level initiative called “Fast Digital 4 Discrete Industries (FD4DI).” FD4DI is designed to help clients in the discrete manufacturing industries improve their companies using SAP Leonardo-based solutions. Capgemini and SAP are investing in the creation of a series of offers and go-to-market positions that specifically target the discrete manufacturing industries, including aerospace and defence, automotive, high tech, consumer products, and industrial machinery and components. This includes business-led digital transformation use cases underpinned by the latest Capgemini and SAP technology, which can be rapidly deployed.

Our assets

Capgemini is at the forefront of SAP Leonardo exploitation and already has a selection of use cases and prototypes that can demonstrate the potential Capgemini can deliver with SAP Leonardo. The use cases include:

  • Preventative maintenance
  • Track-and-trace for goods in the supply chain
  • Supply chain visibility innovation
  • Digital control room; new views allowing greater flexibility.

Through continued innovation and commitment to IoT, Capgemini has a “SAP IoT-in-a-BOX” solution, a pre-configured, plug-and-play, scalable, and available as a “Solution-as-a-Service.” To see the SAP IoT-in-a-box and the work Capgemini is undertaking with clients, contact our experts.

How can we help you “Transition to Digital”?

Capgemini, along with SAP, can help our customers get on the digital journey. After an initial discovery session using design-thinking techniques, Capgemini’s and SAP’s rapid deployment solution bundles can be utilized to design and build a prototype, which can be then piloted before rolling it out across the enterprise.



What next?

This is the first blog in the Leonardo series and will be regularly updated with examples and information showcasing Capgemini’s commitment to this exciting new world.

The purpose is to create awareness about the new technology (the world is changing), and how it can be used to go for digital innovation. Use cases outlining the solution benefits, information about new disruptive technologies and how it could help you, will be part of the blog series.

You can benefit from Leonardo without disrupting your existing landscape. The core ERP applications can run as-is, innovative digital solutions can be built on top of them.

Tipical Questions
“Why are you leaving your current job?” Hiring managers want to know your motivation for wanting to leave your current job. Are you an opportunist just looking for more money or are you looking for a job that you hope will turn into a career? If you’re leaving because you don’t like your boss, don’t talk negatively about your boss–just say you have different work philosophies, Teach says. If the work was boring to you, just mention that you’re looking for a more challenging position. “Discuss the positives that came out of your most recent job and focus on why you think this new position is ideal for you and why you’ll be a great fit for their company.” If you’ve already left your previous job (or you were fired), Sutton Fell suggests the following: If you got fired: Do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were unfortunately let go, that you understand their reasoning and you’ve recognized areas that you need to improve in, and then tell them how you will be a better employee because of it. If you got laid off: Again, do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were let go, and that you understand the circumstances behind their decision; that you are committed to your future and not dwelling on the past; and that you are ready to apply everything that you learned in your last role to a new company. If you quit: Do not go into details about your unhappiness or dissatisfaction. Instead, tell them that while you valued the experience and education that you received, you felt that the time had come to seek out a new opportunity, to expand your skills and knowledge, and to find a company with which you could grow.
Questions to ask
What can you tell me about your new products or plans for growth? This question should be customized for your particular needs. Do your homework on the employer’s site beforehand and mention a new product or service it’s launching to demonstrate your research and interest. The answer to the question will give you a good idea of where the employer is headed.
