As part of its commitment to mobile developers, SAP is announcing the following news:
Developers are a corner stone for the success of SAP platforms and SAP’s Mobile Enterprise Platform is a core part of SAP’s Strategy. Therefore, SAP is making high investments to deliver tools and programs that will enable developer’s on-boarding, engagement and success.
SAP’s new developer program to enhance the developer experience for its eco-system, has many key elements:
SAP is offering a tiered program offers that help developers through their engagement: from prototyping and learning using the 30 days trial, to development of productive apps using the free developer license on AWS and onto the mobile apps partner program providing enterprise scale support and routes to monetize apps:
Part of the SAP Mobile platform, Sybase Unwired Platform offers the following capabilities:
The SAP Mobile Apps Partner program provides partners who develop packaged mobile applications with a comprehensive set of enablement tools, benefits, and end-to-end support to help them quickly and efficiently develop, market, and sell mobile apps that meet the needs of SAP customers.
For more information, visit the Mobile Apps Partner Center: http://www.sapmobileappspartnercenter.com/
The program delivers a comprehensive set of benefits from flexible, cost effective starter packages for development licenses to hosted sandboxes and development environments, access to a rich and vibrant community of developers, SAP-certification of mobile apps, as well as the ability for partners to market and sell their apps via the SAP Store.
Included are also the rights to use the SAP partner logo branding for the partner company as well as the "SAP Certified"-logo branding for the Store-listed mobile apps according to the current usage guidelines. Upon certification of the first app, the partner will be granted the right to use both a logo indicating the partner status as well as a certification logo for each app.
The SAP Store for Mobile Apps is the enterprise app store where customers can discover, evaluate and buy mobile apps from SAP and partners. Listing a mobile app on the store will provide our partners with broad access to our installed base, prospective customers, as well as the SAP field. The SAP Store is available via website as well as on device with native mobile application for iOS ("SAP Mobile Apps" in iTunes) and Android ("SAP Store" in Google Play Store). Additionally, there is also an HTML5 version of SAP Store for iPad, tablets and desktop now available. Over 80+ mobile apps from SAP and partners are available on the SAP Store today across industries and line of business.
Partners and developers can visit the SAP Mobile Apps Partner Center to find out more about the program and how to get their apps certified and on the SAP Store. Through the SAP Mobile Apps Partner Center, partners and developers can also sign up to take the SAP Mobile Apps Partner Challenge to receive access to special enablement benefits including SAP coaching expertise, quicker time to market for their mobile apps and valuable co-marketing opportunities and media exposure for winners of the challenge to be presented at various SAP events including TechEd and SAPPHIRE.
Yes, but the developer needs to do this via a legal entity (contract partner needs to be a company - a full merchant at least)
