Now is the time to register for the SAP Academy for iOS so you can get the training necessary to start developing your own apps for iOS. The announcement was made at the currently ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
SAP says its Cloud Platform software development kit (SDK) will provide developers with enterprise features such as single sign-on and offline data sync, and that it is enhanced with complementary tools that aim to reduce complexity in the development process.
Susan Prescott, vice president of Product Marketing, Apple, said: “When we set out on this partnership with SAP, we knew we had an incredible opportunity to transform how people around the world work by combining the innovation and security of iOS with SAP’s leadership in enterprise software. We’re already seeing the impact that the combination of iOS and SAP brings to businesses to enable better, more efficient and effective processes across industries. Now even more developers will be able to take advantage of the new SDK, and we can’t wait to see how they transform their businesses.”
Starting today, the SAP Academy for iOS is available to registered developers with initial training and workshops, but a global rollout is in the works with a planned launch for later this year. Apple and SAP have jointly developed the first set of offerings as part of the SAP Academy for iOS curriculum and courses.
The learning journey starts with an introduction to SAP Fiori for iOS of 3–6 hours, which is followed by training on SAP Hana Cloud Platform Essentials, and then you’ll jump into developing mobile apps using the platform. You can check the full learning journey here.
SAP is currently building native iOS apps for various industries, the first of which is aimed at improving collaboration within project teams on iPhone and iPad, and which will go live at the end of March.
