Sybase technologies boost SAP’s Gartner quadrant ranking

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on May 04, 2012

    SAP has made much of its newly bolstered position in the Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms” report. The positioning is based on evaluation of the SAP mobile platform, which NOW includes Sybase Unwired Platform, the SAP Afaria mobile device management solution and Sybase 365 technologies.

    Whether you afford the analyst firm’s rankings and classifications with full credence and respect, or you prefer to give them no more than the “passing glance with interest” which they arguably deserve, SAP has done well and has been recognised as a market leader for its “ability to execute” and completeness of vision.

    The Gartner report details as follows:

    “Mobile application development has become a top concern for enterprises and their CIOs. According to the 2012 Gartner CIO Survey, 61 percent of respondents plan to enhance their mobility capability during the next three years, and 48 percent believe they will become leaders in their industries by fully adopting innovative mobility solutions. This Magic Quadrant assesses the major vendors of application development platforms that enable enterprise developers to design, code, integrate, test, publish and manage business-to-consumer (B2C), B2B and business-to-enterprise (B2E) mobile applications.”

    With its new Sybase-driven capabilities, the SAP mobile platform now includes application development tools, a software development kit, mobile device management and mobile commerce services.

    Gartner continues:

    “In previous years, enterprises tended to evaluate mobile application development platforms (MADPs) based solely on the needs of their current mobile projects. However, increasingly enterprises look for a single MADP that can address most, if not all, of their future projects across all scenarios. As a result, this Magic Quadrant is composed of vendor platforms that can be used to meet requirements for B2C, B2B and/or B2E projects.”

    SAP appears to be quite fond of its newest child then…

    “We have made bold moves to advance our vision and execution prowess in the mobile space,” said Sanjay Poonan, president, head of Mobile Division, SAP “Our mobile platform provides unrivaled depth and breadth for customers looking to implement any type of mobile solution, from business to consumer. We believe our leadership positions further affirm that our platform and overall mobile 2.0 strategy provide a user experience and immediate business edge like no other vendor in the industry.”
