SAP Plans Software for RIM Playbook Tablet
Updated · Nov 23, 2010
SAP has said it will have mobile versions of its business software ready for Research In Motion Ltd.’s new Playbook tablet computer when the device hits the market early next year. As reported in this WSJ.com report, all of SAP’s ERP apps will come out on the Playbook.
“SAP is the leading maker of so-called enterprise resource management, or ERP, software that many companies use to run basic functions such as finance, human resources and manufacturing. ‘All of the ERP apps will come out on the Playbook,’ Mr. Bussmann said.
“SAP was quick to roll out the iPad to its employees. The Walldorf, Germany, company began supporting the iPad, purchasing 1,000 units primarily for the company’s software developers. Now, Mr. Bussmann said SAP is supporting almost 2,000 iPads, adding 300 to 500 per month, and is distributing them to its executives and sales force.”
