In May 2016 SAP and Apple announced their partnership, combining Apple’s world-renowned user experiences with SAP’s unparalleled end-to-end business processes and software.
This partnership opens up new opportunities, revolutionizing the mobile work experience for customers, allowing companies and developers to make a difference in the digital world. It will enable developers to quickly build their own native apps for Apple devices like iPhone and iPad – taking advantage of all the innovative iOS technologies.
In this course you will get an introduction and overview about the impact of the Apple and SAP partnership.
We will give you insights into the SAP Fiori for iOS design language, which extends the SAP Fiori design foundation for a native iOS experience and provide an outlook about the SAP HANA Cloud Platform SDK for iOS that will be delivered in 2017.
This course does not offer practical development exercises. Our aim is to provide insights about the roadmap and the tools for mobile development for iOS in an early stage. If you aim to practice, please check out the subsequent openSAP course SAP Fiori for iOS - Build Your First Native Mobile App. And check out the SAP Academy for iOS courses that are now available.
