SAPPHIRE NOW Madrid: Windows 8 mobile apps on the way

SAP plans to extend their app portfolio with six new SAP mobile apps
for Windows 8, the company said yesterday at SAPPHIRE NOW + SAP TechEd
Madrid.

The new apps aim to take advantage of the touch capability and features
of the new Windows user interface, enabling users to easily interact
with SAP data on various devices, according to SAP.

SAP will also offer future support for Windows 8 development on the SAP
Mobile Platform (as the Sybase Unwired Platform will now be known), as
well as security enhancements to the SAP Afaria mobile device management
solution.

The mobile apps include:

• SAP WorkDeck, providing a role-based view which allows employees and
managers to initiate and process workflows on the go, such as travel,
leave and purchasing requests.
• SAP Manager Insight, an employee profile app that provides managers with access to key HR indicators.
• SAP Learning Assistant, an app providing on-demand, online training.
• SAP Interview Assistant, an app which assists in the management of the interview process when recruiting.
• SAP Customer Financial Fact Sheet, a customer profile app for account
executives to access financial data, invoices and critical sales orders
in real time.
• SAP GRC Policy Survey, an employee policy app.

“SAP continues to build on its tradition of delivering innovation to its
enterprise customer base, in this case, providing the foundation for
mobile computing,” said Sanjay Poonen, president and head of mobile
division, SAP.

“SAP takes advantage of the current install base and customer
relationships to transform enterprises to a mobile-centric computing
model. We look forward to helping our customers fully leverage Windows 8
and bringing new business and consumer apps to the industry that take
full advantage of the new Windows user interface.”

The mobile apps are planned to be available for download in both the Windows Store and SAP Store.
