SAP’s new EVP and GM of Mobile, Rick Costanzo spent 15 years at BlackBerry. He saw the smartphone develop from its earliest days, and he’s excited to be working for SAP because he sees its mobile division as the glue holding together several tech trends.
Costanzo sees the cloud, big data and analytics all coming together under the mobile umbrella, because mobile devices have been driving a data explosion, the likes of which we have never seen. And as we introduce sensors into the equation, that data is set to explode again, which is forcing a symbiotic relationship among these trends. Sensors are feeding data to the cloud, which can deal with growing data requirements because of its elasticity. SAP’s cloud data processing and analytic’s engine, HANA, provides the ability to process that big data in real time and deliver results back to the mobile apps living on a variety of devices.
