These days it seems like all you need to do is create an app that is the _____ for _____. Let me give you an example. Our new app is like Yelp for Bears. We call it Belp. Or perhaps you might be interested in Enjoy the Silence our app which is like Spotify for people who hate music.

I forgot where I was going with that, but the point is. Developing apps is not easy.

The SAP HANA cloud platform is SAP’s dedicated platform for the development of mobile apps. This one of a kind platform facilitates both native and hybrid mobile application development. It can, therefore, be an ideal choice if you are keen on creating an app for either iOS, Android, Windows or one that works seamlessly on all these mobile devices.

Obviously you want to succeed at SAP mobile application development in a markedly stress-free manner. If you don’t want to succeed on purpose then you are either Zero Mostel or Gene Wilder in “The Producers” and the year is 1968.

1. SAP Mobile Application Development: APIs

To begin with, real-time data processing support is as earlier noted, one of the key elements of developing the perfect mobile app. You will definitely need an application that is in a position to instantaneously collect user data. At the same time, you will want an app that you can be able to monitor at whatever time you wish to do so, whether it is for security or performance tracking reasons.

SAP HANA cloud platform provides APIs for HANA SX (an SAP coding language ) along with Java and REST. These handy interfaces facilitate effective application lifecycle management, monitoring functions and authorization management. Critical factors in the development of data-centric apps. On the other hand, the usage of APIs is vital in the development of apps that utilize a single codebase but can execute across different mobile platforms. This will take away worrying about replicating your code multiple times for different operating systems, and can be ideal for creating hybrid apps.

2. Make the most of the of the SAP HAHA Workbench

Another way to succeed at SAP mobile application development is to embrace SAP HANA’S workbench proprietary IDE. This interface will allow you to develop apps using the earlier mentioned HANA XS coding or SAPUIs; SAP’s HTML5 interface development toolkit. This IDE integrates what is known as the “model view controller” approach, and is ideal for developing cross platform apps that are characterized by a lot of data processing. The workbench IDE also comes with a testing functionality that will let you assess your applications prior to deployment.

3. Make use of SAP web IDE

The SAP web IDE is the other proprietary IDE, which facilitates the creation of mobile apps on both the HTML5 as well as SAPUIs platforms. This particular IDE is specifically designed for the development of end-user cross-platform applications that are noted for featuring exceptional responsiveness and hassle-free scalability. It also provides excellent functionality for prototyping packaging together with top notch app lifecycle management tools that can enhance your developing experience.

Paying close attention to these SAP mobile application development tips can enable you to create user experience rich apps that you can also keep track of. You will be able to scale according to the number of users you are targeting even if your app goes viral. Naturally we hope it will. Just do not steal any of the ideas we mentioned above. Belp is proving very successful in the small Ohio Black Bear population.
