Many SAP customers struggling to figure out its mobility strategy, user survey ... - PCWorld

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


PCWorld News


It’s been nearly four years since SAP got into enterprise mobility with the acquisition of Sybase, but many customers still don’t quite understand its mobile product strategy, according to a new survey by the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group.


Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they had either a “poor” or “fair” handle on what SAP is doing with mobile. Another 33.7 percent said they had a “good” sense of it, but only 9.5 percent professed to have a “very good” understanding.


“Communication and clarification from SAP on its mobile strategy is absolutely crucial to customers gaining a more favorable perception of it,” the survey states.


About two-thirds of respondents said they’d welcome more stories about SAP customer mobile implementations, while three-quarters want “better/more information” on product road maps, according to the survey.


ASUG members named a series of challenges they’re facing with respect to implementing SAP’s mobile software. Forty-five percent cited cost as a significant issue.


“I’m not saying it has to be super cheap,” said one SAP Mobile Platform pilot user, who was quoted anonymously in the survey. “But give your existing customer base a break.”


Meanwhile, many SAP customers are struggling to formulate a concrete mobile strategy of their own. While 47 percent of respondents said they were developing mobile applications, 44 percent said prioritizing these efforts has been a challenge.


SAP responded to the findings in a statement that was published as part of the survey.


For one thing, more than 70 percent of respondents had either a fair, good or very good understanding of its mobile offerings, SAP said.


However, “we take to heart that SAP can improve the articulation of our multi-faceted strategy, and we will follow up with specific sessions to discuss the next chapter in our mobile strategy,” it added.


SAP is trying to build a complete stack of mobile technology, SAP said: “This is an important distinction because many competitive individual mobility solutions are being acquired or simply putting up ‘out of business’ signs.”


This year, SAP will publish an “enterprise mobility map” that will “help customers better understand their mobility baseline today and make decisions regarding other areas of their business to mobilize,” the statement adds.


Customers can also expect more mobile case studies and road maps this year, SAP said.


Some 306 ASUG members representing a wide variety of industries responded to the survey in November and December. More than 90 percent were from companies with more than 250 employees.

SAP to open HANA data centre in Sydney - iTWire

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


Enterprise software giant SAP Australia has announced a new SAP HANA local data centre, to be run out of Sydney.




The company made the announcement at the Mastering SAP Technologies conference at Melbourne today, and said the Sydney data centre would be equipped specifically to provide Australian organisations with the real-time capabilities of its in-memory platform, SAP HANA, in the cloud.


SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, as the service is called, is a private managed-cloud infrastructure giving customers the option to reduce their on premise infrastructure and run SAP HANA systems as a stable and secure managed service at an offsite data centre.


More than 3,000 organisations globally run SAP HANA as their platform for real-time business applications.


And analysts are impressed.


“Concerns around data sovereignty remain persistent in many countries, particularly Australia, so onshore hosting will be a source of competitive advantage for global cloud services providers,” said Steve Hodgkinson, Research Director IT, Asia Pacific at Ovum.


“The winners of the cloud services game will be those that can leverage global infrastructure and software for economies of scale as well as the ability to operate locally when customers require locally accountable providers and control over the location of their data. Cloud services providers targeting the enterprise market must learn how to play both globally and locally.”


Through the SAP HANA enterprise Cloud service, customers can deploy SAP HANA applications faster, at lower cost and with less risk than a traditional on premise deployment. They can run next-generation applications such as SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse, which running on SAP HANA enables organisations to capture, store, consolidate and analyse data in real time.


SAP also said in a release that customers can also run SAP Business Suite – SAP’s flagship integrated suite of business applications, including SAP ERP and SAP CRM – on the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service.


“With SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, we are significantly simplifying the deployment and consumption of SAP HANA for our customers,” said Andrew Barkla, President and Managing Director, SAP ANZ.


“Customers can now capitalise on the agility of the SAP Cloud and the performance and simplicity of SAP HANA – all on a data centre located in Australia – to deliver innovation back to the business faster. We see SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud as a powerful means for organisations of all sizes and across all industries to lower capital expenditure and introduce much more frequent innovation non-disruptively.”


“The Australian data centre provides the backbone for customers to enjoy a safe, secure transition to the cloud at their desired speed, allowing them to focus on operational excellence and beating their competition while SAP runs their systems for them,” said SAP Global CIO Björn Goerke.


SAP HANA is short for "High-Performance Analytic Appliance" and is an in-memory, column-oriented, relational database management system.


The company said the centre will open on April 3, 2014 and will be certified across industry standards, including ASIO T4, ISO 27001 and ISAE3402.

SAP decrees the mobile ten commandments - ComputerWeekly.com (blog)

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


SAP is a clinical German company with a stoic approach to hard graft and no perceptible sense of humour, right?


Vorsprung durch Technik has its place at SAP for sure, but the firm has a hidden penchant for jocular transgression which surfaces now and then.


So it is then that SAP mobile solutions and product marketing man Adam Stein came to lay down his ten commandments for mobile recently.


SAP likes mobile remember?


SAP bought Sybase, the database firm with its "unwired enterprise" vision... and SAP HANA is increasingly cloud-centric and cloud is mobile and so on etc.


Stein wrote his ten commandments to celebrate Mobile World Congress last month, so here's a summary:


DeMilleTenCommandmentsDVDcover.jpg


10. Thou shalt not covet thy co-workers device, even if it's really cool -- BYOD policies enforce ownership and usage.


9. No bearing false witness in the mobile world -- falsifying your persona on apps or devices is a bad idea.


8. Borrowing devices with permission is fine -- permanent unauthorised mobile device, app or content use is stealing.


7. Adultery is one step away from pornography -- proper content on corporate devices (BYOD or corporate owned) is essential.


Editorial note: SAP's Stein points out that:


"Web/app content filtering is quickly coming into mobile vogue. New app reputation service offerings are coming to market and rating apps here include Applipedia."


6. Death according to some religions is just an interim state on the spirit escalator -- killing a lost or stolen device is however your God-given right.


5. Honouring your family is good common sense, but how far does mobile honour extend? -- must every piece of content be siloed in windows, Android or iOS ecosystem? No! Variety is the spice of life and should be embraced.


4. Certain days are special in the mobile world -- OS update days, bug fix days, shiny new app days and maybe even a new device days.


3. Vanity belongs to the gods and gossip mags -- the IT dept is not after playing god over your mobile usage, they are simply enforcing a few mobile policies that ensure the company data and your mobile workplace remain in situ.


2. Bearing false mobile devices is verboten (forbidden) -- practice safe mobility and place adequate protection over your devices, apps and content.


1. Users need variety to do their different jobs -- don't let IT become the department of no.

Software AG To Sell SAP-Service Operations In DACH Region To Scheer Group - RTT News

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


Software AG (STWRY.PK) Tuesday said an agreement has been reached with the Scheer Group GmbH of Saarbrucken, Germany concerning the sale of its SAP-service operations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, known as the DACH region.


The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality with regard to the details of the agreement and the purchase price. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014.


The deal includes all of Software AG's SAP product-specific services in the region DACH bundled in its subsidiary IDS Scheer Consulting GmbH with some 500 employees and total revenue of some 64 million euros in fiscal 2013.


With this step, Software AG will conclude the consolidation and transformation of the non-core SAP consulting business , after divesting the operations in North America and Eastern Europe in 2013.


The SAP consulting business was part of IDS Scheer AG which Software AG acquired in 2009 with the main focus on ARIS, a business process analysis product portfolio.


Software AG has fully integrated and further developed the ARIS product family which has become a driving part of its fast growing product line Business Process Excellence. This business line provides 60 percent of Software AG's product revenue and has showed significantly stronger growth than the market and its peers.


Software AG and the Scheer Group have been partners in the German Software Cluster for more than five years and plan to extend their cooperation based on ARIS technology .


The transaction is expected to have a neutral to slightly positive effect on stated IFRS Earnings Before Interest and Tax or EBIT for fiscal 2014 and will reduce the revenue and business line contribution of the consulting division.


The company now expects for fiscal 2014 additional improvements of group profit margin and to increase non-IFRS operating result for the year by two to seven percent over the previous year.

6. Death according to some religions is just an interim state on the spirit escalator -- killing a lost or stolen device is however your God-given right.


5. Honouring your family is good common sense, but how far does mobile honour extend? -- must every piece of content be siloed in windows, Android or iOS ecosystem? No! Variety is the spice of life and should be embraced.


4. Certain days are special in the mobile world -- OS update days, bug fix days, shiny new app days and maybe even a new device days.


3. Vanity belongs to the gods and gossip mags -- the IT dept is not after playing god over your mobile usage, they are simply enforcing a few mobile policies that ensure the company data and your mobile workplace remain in situ.


2. Bearing false mobile devices is verboten (forbidden) -- practice safe mobility and place adequate protection over your devices, apps and content.


1. Users need variety to do their different jobs -- don't let IT become the department of no.

Many SAP customers struggling to figure out its mobility strategy, user survey ... - PCWorld

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


PCWorld News


It’s been nearly four years since SAP got into enterprise mobility with the acquisition of Sybase, but many customers still don’t quite understand its mobile product strategy, according to a new survey by the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group.


Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they had either a “poor” or “fair” handle on what SAP is doing with mobile. Another 33.7 percent said they had a “good” sense of it, but only 9.5 percent professed to have a “very good” understanding.


“Communication and clarification from SAP on its mobile strategy is absolutely crucial to customers gaining a more favorable perception of it,” the survey states.


About two-thirds of respondents said they’d welcome more stories about SAP customer mobile implementations, while three-quarters want “better/more information” on product road maps, according to the survey.


ASUG members named a series of challenges they’re facing with respect to implementing SAP’s mobile software. Forty-five percent cited cost as a significant issue.


“I’m not saying it has to be super cheap,” said one SAP Mobile Platform pilot user, who was quoted anonymously in the survey. “But give your existing customer base a break.”


Meanwhile, many SAP customers are struggling to formulate a concrete mobile strategy of their own. While 47 percent of respondents said they were developing mobile applications, 44 percent said prioritizing these efforts has been a challenge.


SAP responded to the findings in a statement that was published as part of the survey.


For one thing, more than 70 percent of respondents had either a fair, good or very good understanding of its mobile offerings, SAP said.


However, “we take to heart that SAP can improve the articulation of our multi-faceted strategy, and we will follow up with specific sessions to discuss the next chapter in our mobile strategy,” it added.


SAP is trying to build a complete stack of mobile technology, SAP said: “This is an important distinction because many competitive individual mobility solutions are being acquired or simply putting up ‘out of business’ signs.”


This year, SAP will publish an “enterprise mobility map” that will “help customers better understand their mobility baseline today and make decisions regarding other areas of their business to mobilize,” the statement adds.


Customers can also expect more mobile case studies and road maps this year, SAP said.


Some 306 ASUG members representing a wide variety of industries responded to the survey in November and December. More than 90 percent were from companies with more than 250 employees.

SAP decrees the mobile ten commandments - ComputerWeekly.com (blog)

@ a< href="http://sap.rssfeeds.pw">Sap RSS News


SAP is a clinical German company with a stoic approach to hard graft and no perceptible sense of humour, right?


Vorsprung durch Technik has its place at SAP for sure, but the firm has a hidden penchant for jocular transgression which surfaces now and then.


So it is then that SAP mobile solutions and product marketing man Adam Stein came to lay down his ten commandments for mobile recently.


SAP likes mobile remember?


SAP bought Sybase, the database firm with its "unwired enterprise" vision... and SAP HANA is increasingly cloud-centric and cloud is mobile and so on etc.


Stein wrote his ten commandments to celebrate Mobile World Congress last month, so here's a summary:


DeMilleTenCommandmentsDVDcover.jpg


10. Thou shalt not covet thy co-workers device, even if it's really cool -- BYOD policies enforce ownership and usage.


9. No bearing false witness in the mobile world -- falsifying your persona on apps or devices is a bad idea.


8. Borrowing devices with permission is fine -- permanent unauthorised mobile device, app or content use is stealing.


7. Adultery is one step away from pornography -- proper content on corporate devices (BYOD or corporate owned) is essential.


Editorial note: SAP's Stein points out that:


"Web/app content filtering is quickly coming into mobile vogue. New app reputation service offerings are coming to market and rating apps here include Applipedia."


6. Death according to some religions is just an interim state on the spirit escalator -- killing a lost or stolen device is however your God-given right.


5. Honouring your family is good common sense, but how far does mobile honour extend? -- must every piece of content be siloed in windows, Android or iOS ecosystem? No! Variety is the spice of life and should be embraced.


4. Certain days are special in the mobile world -- OS update days, bug fix days, shiny new app days and maybe even a new device days.


3. Vanity belongs to the gods and gossip mags -- the IT dept is not after playing god over your mobile usage, they are simply enforcing a few mobile policies that ensure the company data and your mobile workplace remain in situ.


2. Bearing false mobile devices is verboten (forbidden) -- practice safe mobility and place adequate protection over your devices, apps and content.


1. Users need variety to do their different jobs -- don't let IT become the department of no.
