  • Can SAP move to the tune of enterprise mobility?

    With smartphones glued to a significant percentage of the global population, it's obvious that SAP -- with mobility a central pillar of the company's enterprise resource planning strategy -- is on to something. And, if the development of its new Fiori mobile apps is any indication, the company is just getting started.

    In this three-part guide, our editors take a hard look at how SAP is handling enterprise mobility. To begin, SearchSAP sat down with Jamie Anderson, global vice president of customer relationship management marketing at SAP, to discuss how CRM mobile applications are affecting sales processes in organizations. Next, China Martens, an independent business applications analyst, drills down on Fiori. The collection of mobile applications lies at the heart of SAP's ERP and mobility strategy and offers customers the option to adopt software aimed solely at simplifying their ERP user experience. Martens also examines the HANA-related growing pains preventing more widespread adoption of the software. To close, readers will dive head-first into SAP's focus on mobility as the starting point for application development. To close, Site Editor Todd Morrison examines the new SAP Enterprise Performance Management on-demand applications -- the first of these "mobile-first" applications.

  • SAP HANA at the center of future company's technology plans

    For decades following its inception in 1972, SAP has built and burnished its reputation as a maker of ERP software. Over the years, however, SAP has sought to move past a reputation of being a major player in on-premises ERP by embracing more cutting-edge technologies including mobility, analytics and cloud to meet changing customer demands and expectations.

    Nowhere is SAP staking its future success more than on its SAP HANA in-memory database platform, which SAP created to allow customers to run analytical and transactional processing off of the same in-memory database -- all at hyper-fast speeds. This guide takes an in-depth look at how SAP is remaking its ERP software in the SAP HANA model, what makes it unique and what customers need to know about the potential -- and the pitfalls -- of the technology.

      • Understanding SAP's social media collaboration, analytics software

        Nowadays, companies no longer have to guess what their customers think about their products or services. Customers are taking to social media channels like Twitter to praise, rant or just ask questions, all in real time. This presents unique challenges for companies as they struggle to make the best use of the information. SAP has a number of products designed to help interpret trends playing out on social media channels, but how well do they work, and how do they compare to the competition? How can companies decide if they really need this kind of software? This handbook looks at all those issues, and how social is infiltrating other parts of SAP's portfolio, such as the Jam social collaboration platform.
