Pre-packaged or Custom Native Mobile Apps


If SAP Fiori addresses all the business needs why consider Native apps?

Native applications meet the need for users that predominantly spend most of their time on a mobile device, as opposed to a desktop. These users require a native mobile user experience as a native solutions are designed, compiled, installed, and executed on Mobile devices to deliver necessary performance and user experience.

For use cases that are “mostly mobile users”, a native mobile app with SAP Mobile Platform would be the ideal mobile solution for an enterprise. A native mobile app with an SAP Mobile Platform provides the following superior features for the end user to better run their business and achieve the highest level of productivity:

  • Native features such as GPS, camera and bar code reader
  • Advanced security and authentication
  • Superior user experience
  • Offline Access
  • Improved data transfer speed
  • Improved performance
  • Third party integration
  • Application usage analytics
  • Push notifications
  • Badges

In the future SAP is also releasing support for SAP Fiori Apps with the SAP Mobile Platform to create hybrid containerized native apps to support the above features.


Innovapptive provides pre-packaged SAP certified native mobile apps with a customization and extension cockpit to empower IT teams to tailor the app to meet their specific business needs. In addition, Innovapptive offers SAP Fiori implementation services along with custom native mobile app development. Depending on customer priorities, customers can use these facts to choose between Innovapptive’s SP certified native mobile apps, SAP Fiori Apps or custom build a native mobile app.
