Top 5 Apps
The use of mobile solutions in German-speaking countries was the focus of a recent study by T-Systems and the University of St. Gallen. Four out of five users surveyed (82%) were convinced that apps improve efficiency in our day-to-day working lives. For users, it’s more about having personal aids that make their day-to-day lives easier, and less about the welfare of their company. This is not surprising, but what does this mean for the strategic integration of new mobile solutions in a company? Will we see a renaissance of standalone solutions in company IT landscapes?
While IT departments struggle to find the right strategy for mobile enterprise applications, a lot of users are already employing apps for business purposes. After all, they know best what they need to perform their daily tasks. So IT departments will have to create a framework on which users can find practical apps quickly, install them easily, and use them properly and safely.
There is already a huge selection of apps on the market. And about 200,000 of these little helpers are designed for business use on tablets such as the iPad. We review five of these on the following pages.
From now on, SAP.info will be supporting its readers with regular updates on the latest innovations and proven business app classics.
