TeamViewer and SAP to digitalize warehouse operations with augmented reality

TeamViewer, a global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalization solutions, announced the integration of its enterprise Augmented Reality (AR) platform, Frontline, with the SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) application. With TeamViewer Frontline Augmented Reality, an SAP endorsed app from TeamViewer and part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio, customers can further enhance their logistics processes in SAP EWM and empower their workforce with AR-based vision picking that helps to increase productivity and create more efficient processes across their entire warehouse and logistics operations.

The integration with Frontline and SAP EWM enables businesses to directly connect warehouse and logistics workers in real-time with the critical data and information they need to perform their tasks. The AR-based workflows provide step-by-step instructions to workers on smart glasses and wearable devices that enable them to work hands-free, improving pick rates by an average of 10-15 percent and dropping error rates close to zero. At the same time, new data insights are passed back into the SAP EWM application right at the point of work to enable continual process validation and optimization that can drive significant cost savings.

Cloudflare and open source community to create new API standards

Cloudflare, Inc. announced that it is collaborating with Deno and individual core contributors of the Node.js open source project, bringing together three of the largest JavaScript environments, to give developers flexibility and choice while creating the standards of the future of edge computing. By collaborating around a common set of standards, the effort will aim to ensure code developed in one environment will work in another.

The Web-interoperable Runtimes Community Group (or “WinterCG”) is working with organizations including NearForm and Vercel to ensure that developers’ voices were heard in the creation of a new community group working within existing standards bodies. The API Standards allow developers to:

  • Use the best tool or framework for the job: It will be easier to leverage tools and integrations from the community across runtimes, allowing developers to use the best tool for the job.
  • Have a uniform approach to writing server side code: By removing platform specific nuances and the need to learn different platforms and focusing on functionality it’s easier for developers to ship better code.
  • Move applications as technology needs change: As application needs evolve and change over time there is no need for massive re-writes and adding or switching vendors.
