Ap­ple, SAP to de­velop busi­ness apps for iPhone and iPad

Voice&Data - - APP ALERT -

Tech­nol­ogy gi­ant Ap­ple has joined hands with the soft­ware gi­ant SAP to rev­o­lu­tion­ize the mo­bile work ex­pe­ri­ence for en­ter­prise cus­tomers of all sizes, com­bin­ing pow­er­ful na­tive apps for iPhone and iPad with the cut­ting-edge ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the SAP HANA plat­form.

This joint ef­fort will also de­liver a new iOS soft­ware de­vel­op­ment kit (SDK) and train­ing academy so that de­vel­op­ers, part­ners and cus­tomers can eas­ily build na­tive iOS apps tai­lored to their busi­ness needs.

The com­pa­nies plan to de­liver a new SAP HANA Cloud Plat­form SDK ex­clu­sively for iOS that will pro­vide busi­nesses, de­sign­ers and de­vel­op­ers the tools to quickly and ef­fi­ciently build their own iOS apps for iPhone and iPad, based on SAP HANA Cloud Plat­form, SAP’s open plat­form as a ser­vice. These na­tive apps will pro­vide ac­cess to core data and busi­ness pro­cesses on SAP S/4HANA, while tak­ing full ad­van­tage of iPhone and iPad fea­tures like Touch ID®, Lo­ca­tion Ser­vices and No­ti­fi­ca­tions.

A new SAP Fiori for iOS de­sign lan­guage will take the award-win­ning SAP Fiori user ex­pe­ri­ence to the next level by com­bin­ing it with a con­sumer-grade iOS ex­pe­ri­ence to de­liver on the ro­bust user needs in the en­ter­prise and en­able de­vel­op­ers to build next-gen­er­a­tion apps. To help SAP’s 2.5-mil­lion mem­ber global de­vel­oper com­mu­nity take full ad­van­tage of the new SDK and Ap­ple’s in­no­va­tive hard­ware and soft­ware, a new SAP Academy for iOS will of­fer tools and train­ing. The new SDK, de­sign lan­guage and academy will be­gin rolling out be­fore the end of the year.

As a part of the part­ner­ship, SAP will de­velop na­tive iOS apps for crit­i­cal busi­ness op­er­a­tions. These apps for iPhone and iPad will be built with Swift, Ap­ple’s mod­ern, se­cure and in­ter­ac­tive pro­gram­ming lan­guage, and will of­fer a fa­mil­iar user ex­pe­ri­ence with the SAP Fiori for iOS de­sign lan­guage. Work­ers across in­dus­tries will be empowered to ac­cess the crit­i­cal en­ter­prise data, pro­cesses and user ex­pe­ri­ence they need to make de­ci­sions and take ac­tion right from their iPhone or iPad through apps de­signed to en­able a field main­te­nance worker to or­der parts or sched­ule ser­vice, or en­able a doc­tor to share the lat­est pa­tient data with other health­care pro­fes­sion­als.
