Course Summary

Mobile technology has become an integral component in our lives and is driving the expectations of how we interact with our business systems. Like SAP, top businesses today recognize the value of enabling their employees to work anytime, anywhere through the use of mobile technologies. However, providing this ability in an enterprise context can become quite tricky.

Mobile devices come in various forms and run a variety of operating systems. You will learn, how SAP allows enterprises to support its employee-owned mobile devices and maintain control over the cost and complexity of development.

Enterprises often have many disparate backend systems containing the data they wish to mobilize. This course will show how enterprises can use SAP's mobile platform to integrate into this environment cost-effectively and securely.

Enterprise transactions and data are generally quite sensitive in nature and making that data secure is often of prime concern to businesses. In this course, you will learn about the tools SAP offers to deal with mobile data security concerns.

We certainly want to be able to do business on our phones and tablets, but we’re not necessarily aware of what needs to go on behind the scenes to enable this.

In this course, we’ll learn what it takes to make an enterprise-ready app with SAP mobile solutions.

Development Systems

If your primary interest in taking this course is getting a technical overview about mobile solution development for the enterprise, you do not need access to a development system. However, we realise that many of you will be interested in developing your own code, based on the instructions in the course.
