  • Building Windows application on SAP Mobile Platform SDK – Part 1 22 September 2014, 12:33 PM Many years ago, when I had to drive to a different city my first order of business was to print out a map from MapQuest. Armed with the map, I could for the most part navigate myself in the new city with not much trouble.  Then came the GPS and the rest is history.  In a similar fashion, last year I wrote a simple application to consume an OData Service using WCF Data Services client library.  The process was not tough.  By adding a service reference to the OData Service, Visual Studio automatically generated client data service classes which are then used to consume the OData Service as ob...
  • SAP UI5: A user’s godsend or double edged sword? 21 September 2014, 09:33 PM We’ve all heard a lot about SAP UI5 by now. It’s being touted as the UI of choice by SAP, with plans to move towards using it in every facet of SAP, originally starting with HR & Finance transactions, and now in Fiori and HR Renewal. This was, and still is, exciting news when you think about the UI that we have had to tolerate in standard SAP. Most users will tell you that navigating SAP is never an enjoyable experience. You eventually get used to it, but you never look at it and go "WOW. I’m SO glad I get to look at this everyday". To be fair, a lot of the functionality in SAP is process a...
  • The Power of Design Thinking in Fiori Application Development 19 September 2014, 03:25 PM Last week the NIMBL team visited SAP for a Co-Innovation workshop where we are partnering with SAP to build a Fiori application that runs on the HANA Cloud.  Our use case is for a Transportation company that ships millions of dollars of goods each year.  One major issue for them (and most transportation companies) is the impact that weather has on transport.  If there is severe weather that will affect a shipment the Transportation Planners are forced to scramble at the last minute to try and reroute the delivery.  This results in lost revenue by: 1) having the company pay to find another c...

  • Enterprise Mobility – SAP Mobile Platform: why we support Windows? 18 September 2014, 01:23 PM When was the last time you opened up your iPad to do some serious work?  By serious work, I don’t mean sending and receiving email or even creating a word document.  I am talking about the kind of work that you would normally do at the office.  Like for example, I can recall many instances where my boss wants a certain file from the corporate network and check on the status of a customer ticket and see if I can reproduce the issue.  My response is always, “I will look into it as soon as I get to my laptop”.  I am sure most of you have seen the ad for a trading company on TV about a young bo...
