Software AG has announced its participation at the inaugural edition of LEAP 2022.

Software AG’s presence at LEAP will reflect its core focus areas which include Integration and API Management, IoT & Analytics, and Business Transformation solutions.
“LEAP is expected to become a platform of a global vision for the tech community,” said Ahmad Salama, Regional Vice President at Software AG. “With the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, acceleration in innovation is rapid; projects such as NEOM, Red Sea, and more are realising a future fuelled by inventions, liveability, and sustainability for a thriving economy. We believe this vision is also founded on a ‘connected enterprise’ philosophy, which is also adopted and shared by Software AG, to support its acceleration and meet the transformation goals in the kingdom and beyond. At Software AG, we will continue to share global best practices, invent new ones as part of the thriving Saudi digital community, invest in the Kingdom’s economy and its youth, and align ourselves with the country’s vision in mobilizing this technological advancement across public and private sector institutions.”
An IoT-powered Smart Warehouse showcase in a gamified setup is anticipated to be the spotlight of the Software AG booth at the show. Visitors will be able to witness IoT in action and experience a supply chain with connected equipment to move goods across with optimum efficiency managed by Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform. The showcase demonstrates a connected digital ecosystem, both cloud, and on-premise, that enables enterprises and organizations to tackle challenges holistically and truly turn data into business value.
