SAP has released Afaria 7.0, the latest edition of its mobile systems management tool, boasting a new user interface for simplified administration and improved workflow and enterprise integration capabilities.
SAP said the update will help businesses manage the increasing number of mobile devices employees are bringing in to the enterprise.
As mobility management puts increasing pressure on IT resources, businesses have been looking at ways to drive down the cost and complexity of the administration, the firm said.
"The consumerisation of IT is driving our innovation path," said SAP global solutions president, Sanjay Poonen.
The Afaria user interface has been optimised for touchscreen devices, including the iPad, so administrators and users can manage the devices with fewer clicks.
Common tasks performed with the Afaria have also been streamlined and made more intuitive, it claimed.
Meanwhile, SAP also touted a new web services application programming interface layer (API) that it said will make it easier for businesses to automate their enterprise applications on mobile devices.
In addition, Afaria's security management capabilities have also been enhanced to give businesses more control of sensitive corporate data.
The SAP business intelligence Business Objects portfolio has now been integrated with Afraia, as has an expense management application to allow administrators to manage mobile costs such as voice and data roaming.
Lastly, the firm also announced it has selected Samsung's Galaxy S II smartphone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet device for staff to use internally, in another boon for the Android platform.
This would also suggest that reports SAP is believed to be working on developing business applications that can be supported natively on Android devices are accurate as the firm has a track record of testing out future developments in-house before offering them to market.
