What It Is

SAP Mobile Cards is an offering from SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services that can package key business information into containerized micro apps, allowing end users to access and interact with that information in a responsive, native manner on their mobile devices. SAP Mobile Cards also lets system administrators mobilize SAP Fiori applications so that end users can share data from a desktop computer's SAP Fiori launchpad to a mobile device.

Why You Should Use It

In an increasingly digital world, access to information across devices is essential. SAP Mobile Cards is a low-code solution that presents beautifully styled cards to house this information on mobile devices.

If there is a requirement to quickly mobilize some data across mobile platforms, SAP Mobile Cards is the solution.

How To Use It

SAP Mobile Cards has three key user stories:

  • Developer - Builds the card.

    Developers can use SAP Web IDE or Business Application Studio to design and build cards for the end users. Developers can implement push notifications, and custom and context-specific actions that can be performed on the cards.

  • Administrator - Manages the card.

    Administrators use Cloud Platform Mobile Services Cockpit to manage the cards (to keep it consistent with the developers description). They are responsible for maintaining the life cycle of cards, such as Productive, Development, etc. and the client policies such as Passcode, Logs, etc.

  • End-user on Android and iOS - Uses the card.

    End users download the SAP Mobile Cards application from the app store or google play store and register the application using the information provided by their respective administrators. Upon successful registration, users then subscribe to cards to access information on their device.
