To provide mobile end-to-end offerings through monthly fees covering mobility software from SAP
IT consulting company Capgemini has entered into a strategic partnership with Sybase Managed Mobility technologies to offer them on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) basis.
Capgemini has entered into an agreement with SAP to build differentiated mobility offerings, through which Capgemini plans to make mobility offerings from SAP available to customers.
Capgemini said enterprise mobility is growing as employees increasingly use mobile devices to handle critical tasks and real-time decision-making.
Capgemini vice-president and Mobile Solutions practice leader Fernando Alvarez said, "We believe now is the time to expand into this market in cooperation with SAP and Sybase, leveraging our expertise and knowledge in mobile solutions."
"We are able to offer one of the most complete suites of SAP solutions available on premise or as a service, providing multiple options to meet customers’ needs from licensing to implementation, hosting and operation," added Alvarez.
Capgemini said that through the agreement with Sybase, Capgemini mobile solutions can be provided via an on-premise environment as well as a hosted environment, through the public or private cloud, including: mobile device management powered by Afaria mobile device management offering, and mobile enterprise application platform services and associated mobile applications built upon Sybase Unwired Platform.
The company will also provide mobile end-to-end oferings through monthly fees covering mobility software from SAP, hosting and application support that will benefit customers.
Capgemini and SAP plan to develop a structured go-to-market model, and to leverage service offerings from Capgemini in support of high-value mobile applications from SAP.
SAP Global Mobility and Sybase Solutions senior vice-president Chris McClain said, "Mobility is a real game changer for the enterprise, and we anticipate that 1 billion people will be unlocking additional value from their SAP back-office systems via their mobile devices and tablets."
"Working with strategic partners like Capgemini is critical to helping SAP unlock this value for our customers. We look forward to leveraging Capgemini’s mobility expertise to accelerate adoption of mobility solutions from SAP."
