SAP Mobile Platform

Build Engaging Mobile Apps, Followed by Smart Deployment

In the 21st century, every business wants to go mobile! So, SAP launched the SAP Mobile Platform (SMP) that makes mobile app development all the more easier.

The SMP platform intends to provide app developers a medium to reach out to the existing SAP customers, who are on the lookout for a comprehensive solution that can focus on business-to-business (B2B), business-to-enterprise (B2E) and business-to-customer (B2C) applications.

As per requirements, the SAP mobile apps built using SMP can be deployed either on-premise or on cloud. It also supports a cross-platform application development environment that allows enterprises to create an application once and run it on any mobile system.

What Does SMP 3.0 Bring Along With It?

The SMP is a complete package in itself that every developer can vouch for! It comes bundled with reusable components, drag-and-drop HTML5 apps, REST APIs and reusable, customizable apps from over one hundred development partners.

Apart from these, on the technical front, SMP 3.0 can be broken down into four major components –

1. Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) : It provides the required development and deployment infrastructure to enterprise mobile applications that connect data from heterogeneous sources.

2. Sybase Mobiliser : A payment processing and service delivery platform for mobile transactions.

3. Syclo Agentry : A tool for designing, deploying and managing the mobile app lifecycle; allows admin to connect complex workflows simultaneously to different types of back-end systems, including SQL, XML and Java.

4. SAP Integration Gateway : A runtime environment for connecting apps to data sources and fetching runtime data. It also includes the Gateway Management Cockpit, a user interface for administering the Enterprise Services Repository which developers use to define, access and manage software-oriented architecture.
