SAP has expanded its ISV partner program with the new SAP PartnerEdge program for Application Development,which supports the end-to-end development and monetization of packaged applications and custom solutions, from SAP partners to the SAP customer base. The program comes in two flavors (one is a FREE Evaluation. License program, and the other is a Commercial License program) - making it easy for application developers to create, market and sell complementary solutions. Both flavors of the SAP PartnerEdge program for Application Development offer partners (from traditional ISVs to VARs to SIs) a comprehensive set of tools, support and other benefits.
Ecenta AG has recently published on the SAP Store an app intended for service and maintenance personnel. Service Issue Management is fully SAP-certified in the framework of the SAP Mobile Apps Partner Program and thus uses the SAP Mobile Platform.
Typically, service engineers are confronted by the need to manually enter a lot of data while being on-site - which is very time consuming and error prone. In addition (and as a result of that), a lot of the service data in the CRM backend may be outdated.
With the ecenta mobile app, the service engineer can process the service request online and offline, and even use the built-in camera of the mobile device to capture QR-codes attached to the equipment - this reduces processing time and increases data quality. The camera can also be used to take pictures of the defective equipment, which can directly be attached to the service requests and synchronized with SAP CRM. The mobile app comes with an intuitive, easy to understand user interface.
The result? Reduced time to create service requests, reduced downtime of production equipment and improved customer satisfaction – as service processes have speeded up and downtime of production equipment is reduced.
Partners should be aware of the multiple App and Application challenges that SAP is currently running. Join the game and have a chance to win exciting prizes – which includes extensive go-to-market support for your app, a trophy, media and customer exposure, and in some case award money up to 10000€!
To be potential winner or finalist for these challenges, all you need to do is ensure that your app or application is live on the SAP Store by the Challenge specific deadline.

SAP Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Unwired is a SAP mobile app that is live on the SAP Store and in use with SAP's customers. The SAP EMR Unwired mobile app displays the clinical information healthcare providers need to care for patients. With this data available on mobile devices, providers can get instant access to patient history, track information at the point of care, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals. The application integrates with various SAP and non-SAP departmental and clinical information systems and runs on a wide variety of mobile devices and operating systems.
NEW: Partners now have theopportunity to extend, adapt or redesigned SAP EMR Unwired.
SAP EMR Unwired employs the SAP Mobile Platform, more specifically SAP NetWeaver Gateway, to connect to the relevant back-end systems. To enable our partners to extend this app, the SAP EMR Unwired code is now part of the standard SAP Mobile Platform bill-of-materials. So, if you as a partner would like to create your own app based on SAP EMR Unwired technology, you only have to follow these steps:
Partners that join the SAP Mobile Apps Partner Program already know the advantage of building packaged apps and publishing them on the SAP Store – accessible to 230000+ SAP customers.
This offer has now been extended. As before, an SAP partner can develop their app on the SAP Mobile Platform and have it certified, following the standard SAP Mobile Apps Partner Program certification process. NEW: once live on the SAP Store, the partner can in addition create a Rapid Deployment Solution for that packaged app, and publish it on the SAP Store as well. The benefit of an Rapid Deployment Solution for the customer is that they can take advantage of game-changing innovations with a low-cost and predictable approach, as the Rapid Deployment Solution provides the customer a ‘bundle’ with a defined solution scope, fixed implementation duration, and fixed service price. As a result of this, the partner can benefit from a quicker adoption of their mobile app in the market.
Partners also have the opportunity to create a Rapid Deployment Solutionthat encompasses their mobile app PLUSan SAP Rapid Deployment Solution, such as the one for the SAP Mobile Platform. Such a combination of Rapid Deployment Solutions will then still have a defined and qualified“fixed scope, fixed time, fixed price implementation offer“. Partners who are already a value added reseller can in addition sell the SAP application software underlying an RDS.
