Xamarin Extends SAP Mobile Platform and Applications to Vast Developer Community
Last week at Mobile World Congress 2014, SAP and Xamarin made an announcement about their joint efforts to empower enterprise developers with leading mobile development solutions.
SAP News reported, bolstering its commitment to an open partner and developer ecosystem, SAP is collaborating with Xamarin to provide developers with mobile app development frameworks that can efficiently and cost-effectively enable development on the company’s market-leading* SAP Mobile Platform. These mobile development environments are intended to allow enterprises to rapidly build rich and personalized mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices from a single code-base. With built-in support for SAP Mobile Platform, businesses will gain easy, more secure access to on-premise and cloud-based data and processes from Xamarin leading mobile development frameworks.
To learn more about this partnership and its impact on the mobile development market, Ian Thain, SAP Developer Relations, interviewed Joseph Hill, COO and Cofounder of Xamarin. In the 5 minute interview Ian and Joseph discuss how Xamarin provides enterprises with the ability to rapidly build rich native mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows 8 entirely from Microsoft’s Visual Studio environment. Furthermore, they explain how this powerful, unique approach to mobile app development will now be extended by this new relationship with an enterprise-grade software developers kit (SDK) that will allow direct access to the on-premise and cloud versions of SAP Mobile Platform.
