Implementation was relatively smooth, but need on-going engagement with vendor

We are satisfied with the product and services provided by the vendor. There were some instances where we didn't get the response from the vendor as quickly as we had anticipated, resulting in some escalations of service requests - but such instances were not many.

SAP Mobile Platform (SMP)

The solution has been nothing but problems over the 4 years of service.

SAP SMP solution has been a poor performing, unreliable, blackbox. Our applications are limited in functionality because of limitations provided by the SDK and face consistent performance/data reliability issues because of database dead locks and close waits on the SMP database.

SAP SMP a need for SAP driven companies

We already have extensive implementation fo SAP. We wanted a mobile platform that will integrate seamlessly with our current platform. SAP SMP was able to satisfy upto 80% of the requirement. We have had few technical issues but SAP team did a good job fixing it.

SAP FIORI ... Rough start but getting better

We started looking at SAP FIORI / SAPUI5 with their Netweaver Gateway pretty early on in the release of the mobile apps. We actually were in the initial ramp-up customer group, but had to hold our go-live for about a year due to issues with the FIORI client (native mobile app) and our MDM platform (MobileIron). Initially, the FIORI apps were pretty clumsy, the installation process and patching was time consuming (2 installs per FIORI app), and there seemed to be few people on the SAP forums and even in their customer engagement team that were really proficient with the product. Like I said, we struggled with a number of issues related to being able to deploy these apps within our mobile infrastructure, which was 80% of the reason we were looking at SAP FIORI. As the product has progressed, it seems to be easier to maintain (bundled app packages and backend ERP components built into the Netweaver stack / Business suite) and more information is "out there" now to research bugs and fixes. Overall, I would say that you would really need to understand the use case for why your company would look at taking the time / resources to implement SAP FIORI apps at your company. It is a great solution to provide apps to your user base for common SAP tasks (probably no more than a few clicks), and the Gateway is a good "free" solution to expose your SAP data in an OData format, but if you are looking for orchestration or API capabilities, you will need to complement this product with other solutions.

SAP mobile rapid deployment using Fiori.

Very productive for quick mobile deployments using SAP data and expose it mobile. Important to share that it develops a browser application responsive in HTML5 and it is not a pure mobile application framework. Still needs to evolve to offer a pure mobile development framework.

SAP Fiori

Great potential, but will need customizations to be rewritten

Good support, but most of the out-of-the box functionalities are for HANA

SAP Mobile Platform (SMP)

Mobile Opportunities

Normaly the plataform is very robust but the version for mobile presents opportunities

SAP Fiori

SAP Fiori - End Users Perspective.

Has really helped to simplify key transactions and to mobilzie the application to 40 percent of the installed userbase.

SAP Mobile Platform (SMP)

Does the job, but lack of vision for future leverage.

We have been using Mobilizer but it feels like a very tactical solution. There is no strategic roadmap that we've seen for how this partner can help us advance our mobile solution capability. We had also worked with IBM's MobileFirst but when we moved away from hybrid solutions, they were less relevant.
