SAP Mobile Platform Review

A true MEAP, but installation is extremely painful.


Valuable Features:

Solid development platform that allows you to automate functions from different backend systems. It is a true MEAP.

Room for Improvement:

Installation is extremely painful. Communication between Sybase, the required Relay Server and Afaria is very difficult and time consuming. The required products keeps changing as well, you may need to add NW Gateway into the mix as well. The "GUI" generation isn't to that point that you can eliminate the need for custom platform specific code for the user front-end. The long-term roadmap of SAP's mobility platform is very confusing (acquisition of Syclo, etc.)There isn't a big ecosystem of consulting partners, SAP consulting, etc. that have deep experience to help you hit the ground running.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
