E-mail Print PDF

Apple and SAP release the fruit of the team up announced back in 2016-- the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS, a toolset for developers wanting to build "enterprise-grade" iDevice apps

SAP DevelopmentThe SDK uses the Apple Swift programming language, and offers a selection of pre-built UI components and easy access to iPhone features (such as built-in sensors), all governed by business and security rules. As the name might suggest it also handles the data stored on the SAP Cloud Platform.

Also included in the bundle is Assistant, a Mac app that helps set up projects, and UI elements for the SAP Fiori design language conforming with the Apple Human Interface Guidelines.

On the training side Apple and SAP offer the SAP Academy for iOS-- a means to teach developers about connecting to SAP, working in Fiori and general iOS development. SAP promises it will even release a number of tutorials and an iPad training app, SAP Fiori for iOS Mentor.

Cloud Platform users can download the SDK from SAP now. Trials instances are limited to 1 gigabyte and sit on a shared server with a "variable" number of cres.
