German software giant SAP has expanded into the mobility space with its recent acquisition of Sybase. This addition will enable SAP to focus on mobility for enterprise applications and create a mobile platform that can run both on-premises and in the cloud. SAP says the new platform plugs into a range of applications and is compatible with most mobile operating systems and devices. SAP’s other objectives include expanding the support and collaborative framework it provides its partners, and releasing software tools for developers to build their own mobile applications. SAP reported a 12 percent growth in software and software-related service revenues in the first quarter of 2010. The goal, says local managing director Graeme Riley, is for a presence “on premise, on demand and on device”. Ulrika Hedquist
