ORLANDO, Fla., May 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HERE, the location cloud company, announced today that Fichtner IT Consulting and msg global solutions have won the joint Internet of Things (IoT) app challenge from HERE and SAP.

In November last year, HERE and SAP asked businesses and developers to create solutions with game-changing use cases for the IoT, leveraging SAP HANA® Cloud Platform and the HERE cloud location capabilities. Both Fichtner IT Consulting and msg global solutions delivered on this task by creating new products that convinced the judges from HERE and SAP.
Their awarded solutions are:
Fichtner BGI Grid Analytics: a solution to support asset management-related issues in the transmission and distribution grid.
