Course information

Course Summary

Mobile technology has become an essential part of our lives and also influences the way we interact with business solutions. Due to global changes and macroeconomic shifts, it has become critical for modern companies to constantly digitize both internal and external processes and look for supply chain resilience and sustainable outcomes.

Like SAP, top businesses today recognize the value of tackling these challenges by enabling their employees to work anytime, anywhere using mobile technologies. The SAP mobile experience is the indispensable and complementary set of mobile solutions to help companies achieve this and become intelligent enterprises.

In this course you’ll get an overview of what the SAP mobile experience is all about. In the first week, we’ll show you the big picture, and in the second we’ll showcase several concrete scenarios for some of the relevant user groups. Finally, in the last week of the course, we’ll emphasize all aspects which are crucial to develop, customize, deploy, and run mobile applications to ensure an intuitive, easy-to-use, and sustainable mobile experience for companies around the world.

At the end of the course, you’ll have a good understanding of SAP’s mobile vision and how it can be realized to create value for your business.
