    Good info and the correction notes would be helpful before starting the implementation.

    But do we have to open Agentry server port for mobile app to access the system, will there be a security threat because of that ?

      Hi Shobhit,

        

      Yes, you will have to open Agentry server port (declared in the ANGEL Front End section of the agentry.ini file) to enable client-server communication.

      However, since user authentication happens on the Agentry server and the ANGEL protocol uses SSL/TLS over TCP/IP communications to encrypt all data synchronized between the devices and the server, security should be fine.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards,

      Julien

        Thanks for this information Julien, as currently we are in evaluation stage for the SAP Agentry app I will have to understand more about this overhauled mobility architecture from SAP.

    Very nice posting for initial info about CRM Sales Manager 2.5.

    I think the latest rumor is that SAP Cloud for Sales will be an alternative to mobilize SAP CRM solution’s functionality except the on-premise installation based sales manager 2.5.

    Thanks for an overview of the new app. Certainly moving to the Agentry platform does give more flexibility. On the other hand, after having a closer look at the out of the box functionality I must say user experience is worse than in 2.1.  to name a few: it takes more clicks to create an account, there is no analytics, limited search functionality. There is a lot to improve in the next version.
