Capriza: The Simplest Way to Take Your SAP Mobile

As companies have grown over the past several decades, the necessity for business process management (BPM) has increased exponentially. This need is the lifeblood of companies like SAP that deliver robust solutions for enabling companies to operate efficiently and in an organized way. Over time, enterprises have become increasingly more complex, further driving the demand for business applications and services that facilitate the management of corporate information and collaboration. Longtime SAP customers now face the challenge of extending their BPM investment to the personal devices central to daily life of the typical employee, a new necessity with a very high barrier to entry but nearly immeasurable ROI.

Few IT leaders will refute the benefits of going mobile, but even fewer will be able to outline a realistic plan for getting there. That’s where Capriza can help. Capriza’s end-to-end mobility solution for SAP customers is the simplest way to transform SAP desktop workflows into lightweight, HTML5 mobile apps (which we call “zapps”).

 Real Life Example

We recently assisted a large manufacturing company that needed to provide its hourly employees with a way to complete time sheets from their mobile devices, using SAP Employee Self-Service. With Capriza’s technology, which requires no coding, no APIs and no integration in order to create lightweight mobile apps, this company successfully designed version 1 of the app in a matter of days. The IT professionals managing the project quickly deployed the app to a test group of employees, collected feedback and made improvements. They then initiated a rollout of the app to a broader group of users, which included international employees and contractors. This company was successful from the beginning because the IT team had a particular SAP workflow in mind when it began designing the mobile app.

As with any Capriza customer, once the first app was well-received by the business users, IT came up with several other SAP workflows to mobilize and has begun working on those. The key thing to remember is mobilizing SAP begins with defining what business needs must be met through the mobile app.

Half of the battle involved in mobilizing SAP is becoming mobile ready, but with Capriza, you are already ready to go mobile just by being a user of one of SAP’s web-based technologies. For CIOs and IT Directors thinking, ‘There’s got to be a better way’ when evaluating native application development platforms and outsourcing options, Capriza should provide that light bulb moment. The technology certainly wowed the SAP TechEd attendees in Amsterdam when it won the HANA Cloud App Challenge in early November.

For particular elements of an enterprise mobility strategy, native applications and 6-month development cycles are absolutely necessary; however, for specific workflows on SAP systems, be them ERP, CRM or ESS, Capriza is the most effective way to achieve internal mobility.
