SAP Said to Up Ante in Mobile Analytics

Oct. 16, 2012

SAP AG today announced upcoming availability of SAP Business Planning and Consolidation 10.0 application on the SAP EPM Unwired mobile app. SAP Business Planning and Consolidation is one of the latest planned additions to the library of apps available on SAP EPM Unwired. The application aims to provide access to decision-critical information through next-generation user experiences on mobile devices. The availability of financial planning and analysis data enables managers to go beyond simply accessing information to inputting information. This offering is part of a series of mobile innovations announced over the last year in business intelligence (BI), cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and applied analytics. The announcement was made at SAP(R) TechEd 2012, being held October 15-19 in Las Vegas.

SAP EPM Unwired, available now on iTunes, is the mobile entry point into the SAP EPM OnDemand solution. Applications like SAP EPM Unwired provide users a mobile front-end as part of the EPM suite on the device of their choice. This gives users the ability to plan, budget, forecast and consolidate anywhere, on demand.
