Newsbyte: SAP Positioned As A Leader In Industry Analyst Firm's 2013 Mobile Application Development Platforms And Mobile Device Management Magic Quadrants

WALLDORF, Germany, Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner in the leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP)" report.* This comes on the heels of SAP's recent leadership position in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management (MDM)" report.** These leadership positionings are based on an evaluation of SAP® Mobile Platform and SAP® Mobile Secure portfolio, including the SAP® Afaria® mobile device management solution, the SAP® Mobile Documents solution for mobile content management and the SAP® Mobile App Protection solution by Mocana for mobile application management. In both reports, SAP is recognized as a market leader for its "ability to execute" and "completeness of vision."


According Gartner: "As this market reaches early mainstream status, Gartner expects Leaders to be profitable, and to present lower risk and consistently high project results as the market begins to consolidate as competition grows. Leaders must not only be good at cross-platform development and deployment, but also must have a good vision of the multichannel enterprise, support for standards, a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable channels and partnerships to market. Leaders also must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade. Leaders can focus primarily on either B2C or B2E, but vision and execution scores are higher for vendors that can cover both cases today."*

"SAP is the only vendor with leadership positions in both the Gartner MADP and MDM Magic Quadrants, in our view further affirming that we are the only vendor that offers an end-to-end solution that is best-of-breed both on premise and in the cloud," said Nick Brown, senior vice president, Mobile Strategy and Market Development, SAP. "Our early bet on mobile has allowed SAP to build out the industry's most extensive B2C and B2E mobile platform, mobile apps and enterprise mobility management portfolio, and customer and partner ecosystems."
