Projetos de Inovação Digital


In the past, many organizations adopted an information management strategy grounded in a system of records, which provided them a competitive advantage. Due the technological advances in computing and how these systems can be accessed, new forms of systems of intelligence are emerging through embedded technologies such as Internet of Things, Blockchain, Machine Learning, Big Data an Analytics. These data-driven systems of innovation are enabling digital disruption and new business models. However, many organizations don?t know what steps to take, where to begin their journey to digital, or how to be sure they won?t waste resources on innovation they can?t implement throughout their organization to drive better results. Thus, the discipline of Digital Innovation Systems focuses on how these new technologies can be infused in the current information systems and act as the building blocks to organizations build their digital innovation system. Students will have the opportunity to materialize the above technologies in training activities in SAP business applications and present their work to SAP, SAP partner and/or customers.
