Today we are proud to announce a partnership with SAP to help developers create great native mobile applications that easily integrate enterprise data and processes. SAP powers the internal and customer-facing business processes of more than 250,000 companies around the world. With Xamarin, SAP customers can build sophisticated mobile solutions with smooth, native user interfaces on every mobile platform.
Today we are announcing four initiatives with SAP:
- Xamarin SAP SDK – Today we are releasing a jointly-developed Xamarin SAP SDK that provides a native .NET interface to the SAP Mobile Platform. Developers can easily authenticate against SAP Mobile Platform endpoints and use native C# objects to access their SAP business objects directly. Full data-access capabilities and Linq support are included.
- Automated mobile testing support – Xamarin Test Cloud now includes built-in SAP Mobile Platform data verification capabilities to ensure mobile applications are properly capturing and synchronizing data with SAP systems. Tests can run on the mobile app’s user interface, and then verify the backend data in SAP automatically. In this way, a mobile application’s frontend and backend functionality can be simultaneously tested to ensure stability and data integrity.
- Xamarin + SAP Certified Consultant program – Xamarin’s 150 global consulting partners and thousands of SAP global consulting partners now have access to a program that provides expert resources to help partners develop compelling apps using Xamarin and SAP together.
- Xamarin SAP Training – Xamarin University now includes an expert-led course and curriculum to train enterprise customers and consulting partners on best practices in developing Xamarin mobile apps with the SAP Mobile Platform.
We believe that mobile will be a critical part of every business process, and so we are very excited to be taking these first steps with SAP to help companies around the world go mobile.
