Yes, most of us can't live without a smartphone or tablet nowadays, and can't end the day without using a mobile application. The current era people live in can be described to as an app-driven world.

To enable customers to fully leverage the data in their SAP enterprise systems, SAP is developing a lot of new and native iOS industry apps for core business processes to transform how customers run their business anywhere.

The kind of capability that drives a digital enterprise is the power to get mission critical information, reports, and data anytime and anywhere you need it, without being tied to your desktop. SAP is starting with industries including retail, asset intensive industries, professional services, and healthcare where the need for consumer applications is high and there is instant add value as they develop those applications.

In order to develop, extend and run a new class of native iOS apps powered by the HANA Cloud Platform (HCP), SAP provides their community of developers with advanced tools and training such as SAP HANA Cloud Platform SDK for iOS and a SAP Academy for iOS. Developers can get access to the power of HANA in the cloud.

HCP allows you to change an existing SAP application (or mobile SAP app) even though you’re not a developer wherein you also no longer need months of customization with lots of consultants. HCP is that fastest path to the best app and that path just got even better with this specific partnership.

Companies and developers can easily build their own native apps for iPhone and iPad through SAP HCP SDK for iOS and training for developers to native iOS apps powered by HCP while taking advantage of all the innovative iOS technologies.

SAP, together with Apple, will offer developers with a SAP Fiori for iOS design language based on SAP Fiori UX adapted for iOS. This will include reusable design components and building blocks to optimize the development of consistent and beautiful UI design across applications and throughout the lifecycle of each application to ensure that app adoption and user experience are easy to use, consistent and smooth.

SAP and Apple will jointly develop a SAP Academy for iOS to complement the SDK as well as to curate and educate their combined ecosystem, connecting millions of developers, customers, SI partners and ISV partners. It would be hugely beneficial for both SAP and Apple to share the knowledge of technical expertise and design skills for native iOS app development.

The partnership between SAP and Apple will also allow real work in real time. It'll be easier to consume and leverage your organization's most important data on their iPhone and iPad devices. SAP offers an enterprise computing platform through HANA that enables customers to constantly access their data every day to obtain significant and insightful data.

Nowadays most people can't live without a certain app on their phone and one example of which is Uber. If you'll look back a few years ago, this app is not even available but now plays a huge part in the lives of millions of people. The world people live in today is truly amazing because such apps already have a great impact and hold a huge importance.

The Apple/SAP partnership aims to achieve success by creating such applications that could be vital for their customers, which enables newer and faster ways to perform a task, access data and do their job.

Accessing accurate and real-time data is really a game changer. Mobile apps on iOS will make digital transformation even more prevalent across enterprises. Innovative transformation could really happen and life will become a lot easier with the combination of SAP's helpful data management and Apple's dependable user experience.

This partnership does excite Pro Axia Consultants with all the possibilities and benefits it could bring to the modern society.
