I’m glad to announce the new Mobile – Always Connected live demonstrations. This means that you can access these demonstrations live and directly with your device. All you need is your BlackBerry, a browser and a connection to the network. Every demonstration has a direct access to an SAP demo backend system.
Don’t worry if you do not have a BlackBerry device you can also try the application with the BlackBerry emulator or watch the recorded videos.
This is a demonstration of the technology SAP NetWeaver Mobile. The applications are developed to show the capabilities of SAP NetWeaver Mobile. There are currently no plans to offer these scenarios based on SAP NetWeaver Mobile – Always Connected Clients as SAP standard applications.
Please note that the BlackBerry HTML rendering is not officially supported by SAP NetWeaver Mobile. SAP NetWeaver supports WML rendering for BlackBerry devices.This demonstration forces the Pocket Internet Explorer HTML rendering on a Blackberry Device via the url parameter (PieClient). This rendering option is already available in SAP NetWeaver 6.40 / 7.0 /7.1.
Which Business Scenario is covered ?
The central place to start all scenarios is a application called Mobile Workplace. The Mobile Workplace provides access to the following applications and scenarios:
Mobile Leave Request: Enter a absence type, a date and submit the information from your blackberry directly to the SAP Backend System.
Mobile Trip Request: Enter a absence type, a date and submit the information from your blackberry directly to the SAP Backend System
Mobile Workflow Inbox: Every Leave Request and every Trip request is reflected in the SAP ERP backend system. The backend system will then trigger a workflow. The manager can access the Mobile Workflow Inbox and approve or decline pending trip or leave requests. This demo shows an interaction of the two roles: Employee and Manager.
Mobile Roombooking: Searching for a meeting room while on the move? Could be difficult 😉 This demonstration shows a possible solution. Book a meeting room directly with your Blackberry and an SAP Backend Connection.
Which technology is used ?
All demonstrations are based on SAP NetWeaver Mobile for always connected clients (formely known as mobile Web Dynpro). This technology is based on a model driven approach and enables you to build applications for mobile browsers with access to your SAP backend system. It enables you to mobilize your SAP processes.
