Afaria’s Journey – Afaria to Sybase to SAP to Amazon Web Services

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on May 17, 2012

    What was once Afaria then became Sybase Afaria. What was once Sybase Afaria then became SAP Afaria and the rest is history.


    No not quite, what was once SAP Afaria then became SAP Afaria now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

    This latest “iteration” of the toolsets and technology provide a means for users to manage and secure enterprise mobile applications and corporate-liable and personally-owned devices.

    What is the AWS Marketplace?

    The promise now is the ability to immediately take advantage of a comprehensive mobile management platform with the click of a mouse.

    "Adding SAP Afaria to AWS Marketplace provides customers a fast, simple and trusted way to shop for and implement an enterprise-ready mobile solution," said Andy Jassy, senior vice president, Amazon Web Services.

    The decision to offer SAP Afaria on the AWS Marketplace is in response to increasing customer demand for software that can deliver centralized control of all mobile devices and instantly be deployed in the cloud.

    The 7.0 release of SAP Afaria brings a new user interface for simplified app and expense management, a consumer-like app portal with SAP Store integration and mobile analytics dashboards for business intelligence (BI) reporting with powerful drill-down analysis capabilities.

    SAP Afaria can now be found in the AWS Marketplace. Customers with licenses for earlier versions of SAP Afaria can use the same license to experience SAP Afaria 7.0 on Amazon Web Services.

    SAP mobile division head Sanjay Poonen reckons that by offering SAP Afaria on the AWS cloud infrastructure, the company is extending its existing close relationship with AWS and making it as easy as possible for customers and partners to test and deploy the industry's leading mobile device management solution in an economical and reliable fashion.
