Top 3 Activities for Developers at SAPPHIRENOW + ASUG Annual Conference Orlando

SAPPHIRENOW + ASUG Annual Conference Orlando is one week away and the SAP Mobile team is in the final rounds of finalizing content and schedules for our customers.

The conference attendees are typically senior executives, lines of business and IT decision makers, business managers, and ASUG members however there are activities and content for developers. This blog outlines the top highlights for developers looking to learn more about SAP Mobile Solutions and how to get started with our mobile application development platform, SAP Mobile Platform.


There are preconference sessions at SAP SAPPHIRENOW + ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, and we are running an hands on  session,  SAP Mobile Platform – Solution Strategy, Deep Dive, Implementation Tools, and Project Tips to Ensure User Adoption and Project Success.

This seminar will share the latest news and developments in the SAP Mobile Platform – including SAP Afaria, Syclo, mobile apps, and more. Learn how each of the different components of SAP’s mobile platform can mobilize your enterprise processes, which ones are required, and how they integrate with SAP’s portfolio of business solutions.

Then, get hands-on and learn how to work with SAP mobile solutions by mobilizing one of the most commonly used SAP functions – processing workflows for leave requests, shopping cart approvals, and more – using the latest version of SAP Business Workflow Mobile Application.

The seminar will wrap up with a panel of project experts and customers who will share their tips for project success, user adoption and lessons learned that be applied for your next mobility project.
