In a recent article by Chris Marsh of Yankee Group, he addressed the new partnership between HP and SAP to address enterprise mobile apps. The services are intended to help the clients improve employee productivity with mobile apps and turn customer interactions into revenue opportunities. In it he says “HP’s partnership with SAP is indicative of how complex the enterprise mobility ecosystem has become. HP has been building out its own enterprise mobility management portfolio recently releasing its Enterprise Cloud Services providing sync, share and store for mobile applications and has aspirations to offer a wider portfolio of managed services. On the other hand it cannot afford not to partner with SAP around its more mature portfolio. From SAP’s point of view, the more the merrier, and momentum is on its side. As it pivots to focus more of the SAP group’s services around impactful B2BC engagement for its own customers it will aim to carve out more value in the mobility ecosystem…”
