Among those announced were SAP?s enterprise-grade mobile content management, cloud-based SAP Rich Communication Services 365 (SAP RCS 365) mobile service, IPX Voice Traffic for the global market, and partnership with Ericsson for cloud-based machine-to-machine solutions. For the mobile content management, the SAP Mobile Documents comes with a mobile app that aims to help increase user productivity by providing business users with a secure and single point of access to files and ability to share content from any mobile device. The offering stemmed from what was initially a home grown, in-house tool used by SAP employees. The solution quickly gained popularity internally and the company recognized the need to bring it to market. When combined with SAP Afaria mobile device management solution, SAP Mobile Documents will provide a complete enterprise mobility management platform for securing mobile devices, apps, and content. SAP Afaria supports leading enterprise mobile content management vendors, including Accellion, Alfresco, Box, OpenText, Soonr, WatchDox and YouSendIt. As for the SAP RCS 365 mobile service, the new solution allows instant messaging, and video and file sharing as simple and intuitive as sending a text message. It enables mobile operators to create new services, respond to competition, and increase potential revenue per subscriber. With regard to the IPX Voice Traffic, its global rollout is a result of an agreement between SAP and WIS Telecom to bring together the strengths of both parties to address mobile operators? need for multi-service IPX solution. SAP has previously rolled out IPX voice services in the Asia Pacific region. The agreement extends the SAP ecosystem for IPX globally. Lastly, the Ericsson and SAP tie-up is co-marketing/co-sell partnership targeted to operators, meaning that both firms will jointly offer cloud-based M2M propositions to enterprise customers. Dhiren Doshi, director of telecommunications for SAP Asia Pacific Japan, said the alignment will enable operators to better serve their customers and drive adoption of a broad range of compelling M2M use cases across consumer and enterprise segments. ?This joint collaboration will make it easier for more businesses to leverage M2M solutions. Beyond efficiency improvements, these solutions could enhance customer experience in industries such as retail, utilities, logistics and healthcare,? Doshi said. ]]>
