Delivering a new SDK to develop powerful native iOS apps that integrate easily with SAP systems.
Educating more than 2.5 million SAP developers with tools and training focused on iOS app development.
Building a new set of apps, made for iOS, to speed business processes across key industries.
From the moment you pick up iPhone, you know how to use it. That’s because iOS was designed to be easy to understand. So straight away, you’re productive — sending email, mapping a client’s address, dictating notes or texting your colleagues. Everything is easy, intuitive, and familiar, from scheduling meetings to recording your voice in an iMessage and sending it with a tap.
Amazing, unique features.
Hardware and software made for each other enable entirely new possibilities. Apps built into iOS take full advantage of hardware features such as the dual-core processor, accelerated graphics, wireless antennas and more. For example, you can share contacts, videos and photos with a nearby co-worker in a few taps using AirDrop. Present ideas to a group using AirPlay Mirroring and Apple TV. And let remote colleagues see what you see using FaceTime.
Seamless software updates.
Because Apple designs the hardware and software to work seamlessly together, iOS has excellent support for software updates. This means that as software evolves and new features are added, updates are immediately available to devices, bringing new functionality for users and IT departments. iOS software updates are made available for free, on the same day, across a wide variety of supported devices and models. By getting the latest iOS updates, your users have the freedom to work knowing that the latest security features are also in effect. And iOS sends alerts when it’s time to get the latest version.
iOS and the new IT.
Progressive IT organisations are prioritising productivity by empowering employees with iPhone. Apple makes it easy to manage iOS devices on corporate networks so that IT can focus on what’s most important — helping employees transform the way they work.
Fast, simple deployment at any scale.
Deploying iPhone in your organisation can be a zero-touch effort for IT, regardless of whether they’re managing corporate-owned or bring-your-own (BYO) devices. iOS makes it simple for employees to set up their iPhone and access corporate services, straight out of the box.
Thanks to iOS and built-in frameworks for third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, you can manage devices over the air, configure access to corporate services and protect corporate data — without compromising the engaging user experience that iOS is known for.
Security that’s built in, not bolted on.
iOS is designed with advanced security technologies built in, so IT has end-to-end control of devices, data and apps. Many security features are enabled by default and require no configuration. Others are easily managed to fit seamlessly into an organisation without added complexity for users. iOS delivers a secure architecture, provides enhanced data protection and offers secure access to corporate information networks.
iOS has the most extensive ecosystem for apps on any mobile platform. From built-in apps to off-the-shelf apps in the App Store to custom-made apps created in house or by a third-party developer, you have infinite ways to transform your business.
