The SAP Mobile Apps Partner Program: Results from the Mobile Apps Challenge for Partners in India
7 Partners - 100 Days - 15 Enterprise Mobile Apps across 5 Industry Verticals
In 2012 SAP launched the SAP Mobile Apps Partner program. To help kick-start the program and build a pipeline of packaged mobile apps, we launched regional Mobile Apps Challenges. The Mobile Apps Challenge for partners in India was designed as a high-touch invitation-only program wherein seven partners participated and committed to developing a minimum of two packaged mobile apps each. Partners had from mid-July until October 2012 to complete app development, with the opportunity to showcase their apps at SAP TechEd Bangalore 2012.
The top three apps from the Mobile Apps Challenge presented at SAP TechEd Bangalore made the cut based on predefined criteria (user experience, functionality and innovation, customer appeal, and business value) and a jury of internal and external experts. They are:
Defiance Technologies with Pre-Delivery Vehicle Inspection - WINNER (Watch the video)
