SAP gets ready for “modern” application development

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Oct 23, 2012

    As Sybase development technologies embed further into the SAP firmament, we are witnessing a regeneration of the parent company’s approach to programmers’ needs.

    In particular, we see open source, data analytics focused and so called “modern” applications coming into focus.

    There has actually been a partnership forged between Red Hat and SAP in this regard.

    Red Hat has announced new integration capabilities for SAP solutions as part of The JBoss Way, a “branded” development approach designed to provide programmers with a more productive and simple way to develop modern applications.

    NOTE: The JBoss Way encompasses a new set of frameworks, tools and architectural designs focused on improving developer productivity in building modern applications for mobile and the cloud.

    But what is a “modern” application anyway?

    NOTE: Modern applications are generally understood to denote cloud ready, touch ready, mobile ready apps that are highly intuitive and support all the search and geo-location based functions that a “modern user” might typically want.

    The collaboration is an effort to enhance interoperability and productivity between Red Hat and SAP solutions. It will make it easier to consume SAP application data and business processes from Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform, or JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.red_hat_logo_200.jpg-13139ebd2e786a26.jpeg

    “SAP and Red Hat both support open standards, such as HTML5, REST and OData and frequently join forces in standards-based consortia,” said Adi Kavalar, vice president, Product Management, SAP. “The support of SAP solutions in the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio – for consuming SAP NetWeaver Gateway-provisioned, REST-based OData services – underscores our cooperation in the open community and is a welcome and encouraging step for customers and developers.”

    This Red Hat - SAP integration will be carried out via SAP NetWeaver Gateway technology, which connects devices, environments and platforms to SAP software based on open standards.

    It offers connectivity to SAP applications using any programming language or model without the need for knowledge of SAP solutions by leveraging REST services and OData and/or ATOM protocols.
