      Thank you so much Jill for sharing this!!

      Any idea when will this be available for Android and Windows?

      As a developer/consultant, If client wants to customize this then what are the skill set required for this? Any reference will be of great help.

       

      Thanks,

      Sudhir.

      Thank you so much Jill for such informative blog.

      I want to explore it but i have concern how to start it, Is it possible to try it with SCP trial accounts. Earlier I heard SAP Asset Manager is only available for SCP productive accounts. Please confirm.

       

      Thanks in advance.

       

      Regards

      Mohit

      Hi Mohit,

      Sorry for the delay in response -- i don't check my notifications as often as I should.

      We don't offer Asset Manager with a trial account because it is not a typical cloud solution. You aren't able to simply turn it on and run it. There is implementation effort required.

      We do offer a test and demo license for partners.

      Best,

      Jill

      Hi Nirmal,

       

      We released our first Android version in Q4 of 2018 into Early Adopter Care. Here's the link to the EAC program:

      https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/1728

      The Android app doesn't have all the iOS features available today. The plan is to have near feature parity in the Q2 2019 time frame.

      Best regards,

      Jill

      Hi Jill Elliott,

      I read somewhere that support for SAP S/4HANA Cloud is in roadmap. Any insight into by when it will be available? Also, how it will be supported? Is it going to be enabled by SAP CP ABAP Environment?

      Best Regards,
