SAP Afaria

Afaria is a mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) software platform. 

Afaria is an enteprise mobility management (EMM) software platform. 

Afaria, which is now available in on-premises and cloud versions, was originally developed in 1997 by a company called XcelleNet which was then acquired by Sybase in 2004. When SAP bought Sybase for $5.8 billion dollars in 2010, it also acquired Afaria as part of the Sybase Unwired Platform, which has since been renamed the SAP Mobile Platform. Afaria fits into SAP’s drive to mobilize its applications and processes, while at the same time giving companies a way to secure and manage the very same devices those applications are sitting on.
