SAP Mobile Platform 2.x: Enterprise Grade Mobility
Mobility solutions are a competitive advantage for companies in most if not all business sectors and industries. They are now often high up on the executives' agenda: both in LOB and in IT departments.
This is because mobility solutions are redefining the nature of a company’s business ecosystem: by providing customers, business partners, employees and even end-users new levels of access to information and processes, unlocking new revenue and efficiency opportunities.
This rapidly growing and evolving technology comes with challenges for most organizations, including business and IT managers, application developers, and end users. These challenges require careful planning and up-front decisions about mobile infrastructure, and in the beginning often stands the realization that an ad-hoc, application based approach (e.g., individual HTML5 apps and without any mobile platform) does not scale to enterprise needs.
In contrast, a platform-based approach provides a solid foundation for uniform security controls, simplified integration between mobile operations and core business activities, and greater flexibility to adapt changing technology and business needs.
This functionality has a direct impact on the value that mobile technology delivers to business operations.
The SAP Mobile Platform (SMP) is a one-of-a kind solution for such enterprises that implement a platform based approach and take mobility seriously.
SMP provides you with state of the art technology guaranteeing enterprise ready operations, with built in features including Security, Performance, Supportability, Lifecycle Management and more.

As an IT manager, you benefit from the SMP by getting a high-value mobile infrastructure that offers you complete visibility and control over mobile devices, applications, operations, and costs. This highly advantageous infrastructure is also highly secure, integrates easily with existing business applications and authentication systems, and requires minimal support for end users.
