The Mobile Secure team is pleased to let you know that a new mobile app configuration service is now available with the December release of SAP Mobile Secure. This service helps simplify the deployment of mobile apps – starting today with SAP Fiori apps.
The mobile app configuration service is a mobile app management (MAM) feature designed to help companies easily to build, configure, wrap and deploy mobile apps. This first release is specifically for SAP Fiori and Web apps but will be expanded over time. Now, a Fiori app can be deployed to a mobile device by passing the Fiori endpoint URL to the configuration service which packages the URL into the configuration of a SAP Fiori Client application, builds and signs the app and finally makes it available for deployment through Mobile Place.
Before the build service was introduced, the process for deploying Fiori apps required several steps for both end users at IT. Users started with the basic Fiori client app which they downloaded from the App Store. They entered the URL and other parameters manually. This increased the probability of user error and potentially reduced usability. Also, Fiori apps were generic with the same icon and name; they could not be customized or personalized in any way. Finally app-level security policies could not be defined or enforced by default. I’m pleased to report that those days are over!
The mobile app configuration service makes it easier not only for IT, but also for end users. It enables the easy creation of multiple customized SAP Fiori apps for different functionalities – with different app names, splash screens and icons. It takes the burden off the end user, increasing adoption and giving IT more control of app customization, and it allows for app-level security policies to be defined and enhanced with SAP Mobile App Protection.
