Mobile Applications with SAP Mobile Platform
The main challenges facing companies deploying mobile are - security, back-end access and minimizing “Time To Value” for their mobile investments. As mobile deployments in the enterprise grow, new challenges also appear, requiring consistency in core system access, visibility and reporting, and consistent authentication for mobiles and the desktop environments.
The SAP Mobile Platform allows customers to deploy pre-packaged apps eliminating any development time, and for custom apps, allows users to run apps without a VPN connection, protects data in transit and at rest, and features a unique industry standard approach to data integration across any back end. Built-in reporting, HTML5-based administration UI, offline mode supported by industry standard Odata, and an open development tooling approach with SDKs allow both IT admins and developers to easily manage the system, while developers can build true native, hybrid apps based on Apache Codova, web-apps and even SMS-based apps for a reach of 100% of the devices in the market.
