New Tools Available to Build Enterprise Apps for iOS
Engaging the global developer community, the SAP Academy for iOS is now available and course registration is open.
To complement the newly released SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS and SAP Fiori for iOS design language, we have developed the first set of offerings. The courses aim to provide mobile developers and designers with knowledge, tools, education and training needed to build a new class of mobile apps that take full advantage of the new software development kit (SDK), SAP Cloud Platform, and SAP Fiori for iOS. The learning journey for mobile developers within SAP Academy for iOS provides a suggested learning path along with related learning assets. It will be updated regularly as new offers and additional roles are added.
The SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS gives developers, designers, and businesses around the world the tools and scalability they need to quickly and efficiently build powerful enterprise-grade apps for iPhone and iPad, based on SAP Cloud Platform and built-in Swift, Apple’s modern programming language. The SDK is also intended to provide a rich library of prebuilt user experience (UX) components and easier access to innovative device capabilities — such as Touch ID, location services and notifications — to accelerate app development and increase adoption.
The new SDK is designed to enable developers to leverage mobile services and other capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform, providing enterprise features like single sign-on, offline data synchronization and enhanced supportability to fulfill the complex requirements of today’s digital enterprises. The SDK is intended to be complemented with innovative tools to identify available UX building blocks, existing enterprise services and application programming interfaces (APIs) to access SAP S/4HANA and other third-party systems, and to generate code snippets to reduce complexity and let the developers focus on creating apps that deliver incredible user experiences.
