SAP announced the release of SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 and also noted that energy company National Grid has standardised on the platform for building and managing new mobile apps.
The new release features an open standards-based platform architecture and one common software development kit (SDK). SAP Mobile Platform 3.0′s architecture embraces a “bring-your-own-tools” (BYOT) strategy through integration with third-party development tools.
Also with the new release, SAP completes the unification of its mobile app development platform frameworks. It uses Open Data (OData) Protocol APIs and the open-source Apache Cordova software, which is a cross-platform mobile development environment supported by many vendors including Microsoft.
“While there are many new vendors in the enterprise mobility space contributing to customer choice, they also introduce unwanted complexity,” said Dirk Boessmann, senior vice president of mobile development at SAP, in a statement. “SAP has long been a leader in the mobile industry and we now see the need to simplify for the customer. SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 makes it easy to build and secure mobile apps for an amazing user experience, while providing unparalleled deployment flexibility. Mobile is not a choice but an imperative and I am proud to say that we are ushering in the next generation of mobile.”
