There’s no question mobile technology is here to stay. You likely always leave home with two items in hand: house key and mobile device. With all the tasks mobile apps have made less painful like purchasing movie tickets, booking travel, downloading music, etc., you like many others expect to have mobile tools and apps to make you more effective at your job as well. SAP had recognized this growing trend a few years back and made a commitment to develop comprehensive portfolio mobile solutions for its customers.
SAP acquired companies like Syclo and Sybase to develop the industry-leading, most open and standards-based mobile platform. To go with the new mobile platform, a suite of productivity apps, SAP Fiori, was created earlier in the year. In addition, many new products have been developed around EMM (enterprise mobile management) for mobile application and content management. And not to be forgotten, the importance of mobile security! Partnerships were signed with companies like Mocana to beef-up mobile app security for regulated industries. Needless to say, we have been busy!
