Apple & SAP planning to deliver Cloud Platform SDK for iOS on March 30

At the moment developers can sign up for the SAP Training Academy for iOS, which provides training in emerging compatible apps, the company said. The institute is offering “initial workshops and training” planned with Apple, that is designed for a “global rollout” later this year.

Basically the SDK revealed last May, is intended for making both iPhone and iPad apps. The technology also makes use of Apple’s Swift programming language, and tries to decrease the complexity of app creation with premade components compatible features like Touch ID and the iOS notification system.

Some of the companies, like Burberry, have already adopted the SDK in early testing. SAP said that it’s currently developing iOS apps of its own for numerous industries, the first of which —SAP Project Companion, for consultants and managers, will also arrive on March 30.

Complementing the new toolkit is SAP Fiori for iOS, a design language supposed to provide a “consumer-grade iOS experience” with meeting business demands.

Apple was for years relatively cautious to cater to the enterprise market, even requiring a dedicated sales team. In recent years that policy seems to have been improved, as evidenced by other partnerships with IBM and Deloitte.

The majority of Apple’s revenues come from customer sales, but some organizations have focused on bulk purchases and/or platform support as a outcome of worker demand or simply a desire to go mobile.
