SAP Business Process Analytics

This app helps you view and analyze KPIs on your iPad. The figures it displays give you a quick overview of current developments and can identify ways in which you could improve your processes. With the touch of a button, you can apply various filters to your data, add comments to the results of analyses, and send them off by e-mail.

Designed for employees who handle business processes, SAP Business Process Analytics is integrated with the application management component of SAP Solution Manager. It requires use of the business process analysis tool of SAP Solution Manager – including the corresponding mobile services – and iOS 6.0 or later.

The app is available here in the SAP Store.

SAP Job Progress Monitor

SAP Job Progress Monitor makes it possible to monitor business processes in real time and obtain overviews on a tablet or smartphone about how process chains are progressing. You can also combine processes into groups and monitor them together. For each individual chain or group, the app displays the progress percentage of planned, ongoing, or finished processes. It also enables you to send snapshots of the current status by e-mail.

SAP Job Progress Monitor interfaces with SAP Solution Manager, which is why the latter solution is required to use the app. It runs on smartphones and tablets (Android 4.0 / iOS 5.1 or later).

cuDocument Browser from Circle Unlimited

cuDocument Browser gives iPad users access to all of the documents they keep in SAP’s document management system. You can also perform full-text searches on your files. Meanwhile, the app includes cuSmarText Foundation – Circle Unlimited’s own SAP-integrated document management system – which offers reminders on deadlines and to-do items, digital folders, and other functions. It therefore lets decision-makers know when urgent action is needed.

cuDocument Browser supports iPads running iOS 7.0 or later.
