I recently caught a YouTube video that discussed mobility. The commentator’s tag line was (paraphrasing) “…from wherever they are; whenever they want.” I’d heard the hype before, but this notion really got me thinking. Are there benefits for companies who have chosen SAP to becoming mobile? It’s a nice notion, but really, with the incredible capabilities of SAP applications location seems to be a non-issue. But, there’s a LOT of conversation about mobility out there. So what is the deal?
If you’re heading to the annual SAP Sapphire NOW and ASUG conference in Orlando this May, I’d encourage you to drop by the HP booth (#1700) to ask our subject matter experts for their opinion. For me, being an HP employee, asking some questions about mobility for SAP users requires a short walk down the hallway. I suspect many of you with questions about mobility would like to have this ability; a sort of “experts on tap” arrangement. That’s what’s so great about Sapphire. It gives all of us “face time”, as my kids call it. It’s the opportunity for folks to shake hands; to make new acquaintances, and to begin a dialogue about SAP applications and mobility that may challenge your notions of Mobility for SAP applications.
So, any nuggets of gold, some “food for thought” you ask? Would I leave you hanging? Here are a few (of many) data points our SAP practice teams would have you consider:
- Mobilization of SAP applications expands the usage [of SAP] across a company. Done correctly, mobility can improve the ROI of your application.
- Mobility, deployed correctly, enables users to access data easier & faster; you enable your workforce to resolve questions on the spot rather than having to return to an office. Your workforce gains efficiency, speed without sacrificing accuracy with SAP mobility.
- HP encourages you to consider what your goals are before you launch a mobilization effort. We’d recommend having a knowledgeable, experienced partner in your corner that can work with you to design the best mobility solution for your unique situation.
