SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that the end-to-end mobility solution from SAP targets day-one support for the launch of iOS 8 and devices, including the newly launched iPhone 6. SAP will rapidly support customers running the latest mobile operating system from Apple with the latest versions of SAP® Mobile Platform, SAP Mobile Secure portfolio and mobile apps from SAP. This announcement was made at Super Mobility Week powered by CTIA, being held September 9–11 in Las Vegas.
“SAP is excited to announce day-one support of Apple’s new iOS 8,” said Rick Costanzo, executive vice president and general manager of Global Mobility Solutions, SAP. “Most enterprises need to support multiple OSs, particularly in a BYOD environment. Our customers can protect and manage their data, apps, devices and users on all mobile platforms. From iPhone 6 to Android to Win8, enterprises implementing the complete mobility solution from SAP can future proof their mobile investment with comprehensive and open app development and management platform in the industry.”
Many of the new enterprise features within iOS 8 can benefit SAP customers eager to adopt corporate security requirements such as single sign-on, per-app VPN and app configuration. SAP has validated iOS 8 for apps running on SAP Mobile Platform and plans to further enhance support with upcoming releases of the software development kit (SDK) for SAP Mobile Platform. Companies can mobilize their business with SAP Mobile Platform by quickly building, deploying and securely managing apps for employees, customers and partners. The new harmonized API is available for consuming online and offline data and will be compatible with Swift programming language for developing mobile applications.
“With mobile playing a critical role in helping to simplify business we constantly expand the ability for our employees to manage all their work needs on any device, as early as possible,” said Michael Golz, CIO, SAP Americas. “At SAP we support more than 66,600 iPhones and iPads used by our employees worldwide. Our teams continue to offer the same support for deploying the iPhone 6 and iOS 8 as we have in the past. The SAP Mobile Secure portfolio will support all of the company’s devices as well as employees’ own devices. A top concern with deploying new devices is security, so it is imperative that our complete mobile portfolio is ready for the new iOS 8 on day one.”
