As my colleague Gerhard has mentioned we have released the new Service Pack 4 for our SAP Mobile Platform 3.
The new capabilities can split in three categories Design, Develop and Run.
For the Design Phase we have enhanced and simplified the Admin UI of the SMP. Now our customers have easy access to usage reporting to help them to plan and design the next version of their mobile solutions. Administrators can now easily access reports about the deployed mobile solutions.
For the Development Side we have added a hand full of features which are described in the blog “SAP Mobile SDK SP 5- Whats new?” of my colleague Kiran in detail. The key feature here is clearly the OData Offline Service, which enables our customers to build heavy Offline Apps, based on the new harmonized OData API. the Sap Mobile SDKs are now also supporting Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 additionally to the Android and IOs platforms.
Furthermore we have added the support for additional authentication methods to our SDKs to enable customers to develop mobile solutions with the desired security level.
On the Run side we have enhanced the enablement to deploy and run applications fast and reliable through SAP Solution Manager integration. This brings end2end tracing, workload analysis to the hands of the Administrator. Additionally we enable with the SAP SMP 3 SP4 release our customers now, to scale to millions of users and run mobile solutions in highly available scenarios. Moreover we have added the integration to mobile place which enables our customers to get their users faster up and running.
