SAP makes ERP mobile
SAP will be emphasising the mobility of its ERP solutions.
SAP will be emphasising the mobility of its ERP solutions as it lines up in the Mobile, Apps & Content World section of GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2012. The company will highlight its soluitions in areas such as mobile application and development platforms, mobile device management, mobile messaging and mobile commerce services.
“Mobility is an overarching and transversal technology trend that has broad and deep impact across both the enterprise and consumer markets,” says Sam Alkharrat, managing director, SAP MENA.
“There are tremendous opportunities for companies that can help realise its benefits. We are proud to be at the forefront of the mobile revolution, and our ability to unwire core business processes is set to go from strength to strength in the coming years, particularly in the MENA region. SAP brings the power and simplicity of consumer mobile technology to the business world, helping to make ‘anytime, anywhere’ access on any device a reality through the widest range of mobile business apps and the most robust mobile platform around.”
In April 2012, SAP acquired Syclo, a provider of mobile applications and technologies for verticals such as utilities, oil and gas, life sciences and manufacturing. The move also accelerated the adoption and deployment of new mobile asset management and field service solutions on Sybase Unwire, part of the SAP mobile platform and the company’s infrastructure for developing and managing apps.
SAP and its partners currently offer 70 mobile applications to customers and there are more than 200 on the way.
SAP forecasts that its addressable enterprise mobility market will be worth US $39 billion by 2015, growing at 53% per annum.
