SAP and Ericsson have joined forces to help enterprises manage mobile devices and apps as a service.

The partnership will turn SAP's Mobile Secure software suite for mobile device management, security and applications into a cloud-based service that carriers can sell to enterprises.

The deal gives SAP a broader channel through which to sell Mobile Secure, tapping into both Ericsson's relationships with operators and its network expertise, said Arun Bhikshesvaran, Ericsson's chief marketing officer. For mobile operators, Ericsson's managed service offers a quick route to market and low upfront costs, he said.

The Mobile Secure suite is device agnostic and can deliver mobile capabilities to both devices managed by enterprises and ones that employees bring to work, SAP CEO Bill McDermott said. Earlier this week at CTIA, SAP introduced software that provides an augmented-reality overlay of information on Android Gear devices worn by employees in the field such as repair workers.

The platform also goes beyond enterprises to their customers, he said, pointing to Under Armour, which is making connected athletic apparel that can measure an athlete's performance. Sent to an SAP Hana database in the cloud, that data can be compared with inputs from other athletes and provide a real-time comparison, McDermott said.
